If great bread is the key to a great sandwich — and it is — then it's no surprise the new pop-up cafe at On the Rise bakery is serving some extremely savory treats.

"Sandwiches are something I have always loved doing," says chef Brian Evans, part of the culinary team at Adam and Jennifer Gidlow's 11-year-old Cleveland Heights bakery. "They can be delicious if you approach them with the same passion and pride you would bring to a gourmet meal."

At Evans' suggestion, the Gidlows decided to take a chance on expanding their bakery operations a few days each month, adding sandwiches and soups to the lineup of artisanal breads and pastries. "Brian has definitely taken the lead on this," says Adam Gidlow. "Obviously we have all the equipment here. And approaching it as a pop up seemed like a good way for us to test the waters."
