"The Rise Cafe"- Somerset MA
"The Rise Cafe" is located in Somerset, MA on County Street, a main road in the town. The shop sells a variety of drinks including hot and iced coffee (New England Coffee) as well as lattes and teas. They also have a variety of home made pastries including delicious homemade cupcakes. They also have a lunch menu that includes various salads and sandwiches. They had a drive-thru or you could get your food to go or eat inside. The inside of the shop was modern and had a relatively large seating area. One great aspect of the shop is that they also have an eating bar where people were sitting and casually talking over lunch. A large TV behind the bar had the local news on that some of the customers were watching. The staff was friendly and seemed to know many of the customers at the bar who were of adult and middle age. The shop is open Mon-Fri 5:30am-6pm, Sat 6:30am-5pm, and Sun 6:30am-2pm. While the coffee was only average I have been told the food and cupcakes are great and I plan on returning to try some of them for myself.
