On the Rise (3471 Fairmount Blvd., Cleveland Heights) drew some deserved nationwide praise this week as it was named to Food and Wine’s 100 Best Bakeries in America list.

The write-up about the beloved Cleveland Heights bakery read, “Nearly twenty years ago now, before good baguettes were a thing in a lot of other places in America you’d have thought would know better, they were flying off the shelves at this Cleveland Heights essential business, and were notably favored by discerning hometown boy Michael Ruhlman. Just one of many reasons we like to spend time foraging our way through Cleveland.”

The bakery, which has been in the same location in the Heights since 2001, recently expanded last year and opened a second location at the newly minted Van Aken District’s Food Hall (3441 Tuttle Rd., Shaker Heights).

In addition to their freshly baked breads, the bakery is known for having some of the best chocolate chip cookies this side of anywhere, other tasty desserts and a banh mi we've called one of the best sandwiches in Cleveland.

The bakery is currently open for pick-up and delivery.
