The other day I had the pleasure of stopping in On Rise Artisan Bread in Cleveland Heights. I had gone to the shop a couple of other times, but the line was so long it was hard to see everything that was available until you got up to the counter. There's a vast array of pastry treats as well as a good selection of artisanal bread, along with coffee. A large wood communal table with about 6 to 8 seats is located in the front corner of the store.

If I had one gripe it's that the pastry offerings are difficult to see because they're on cookie sheets in one of the aluminum racks. I think what they were going for was being able to see the work area in the back of the building. I don't know if I'm right in assuming this, but it creates a problem when trying sell your goods. It's not really the bountiful display that you'd find in most bakeries in the world. With as high quality as they're product is; I just wish they displayed it in a more appealing manner. Display aside, I will be purchasing my bread from here because it's truly tasty. If you're near S. Taylor and Fairmount be sure to drop in.

  1. I am glad you enjoyed OTR. I actually went there this morning for some croissants. They are so gooood!

  2. I now go a couple of times a week. They sell a great product. If you live in Cleveland and haven't been to On The Rise, do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Go straight to the intersection of S. Taylor and Fairmount.
