I did two things this summer: drink too much coffee at Rise & Shine Bakery Cafe, and mountain bike, in that order. Now that the snow has started falling I may be giving up mountain biking for a few months, but nothing will be able to keep me from my favorite coffee. And don’t think I’m the only one; Rise & Shine is a local’s favorite, serving up freshly roasted organic coffee, lattes, mimosas, bloody marys, and homemade bread, pastries, doughnuts, and bagels baked fresh daily. With a great lunch menu as well, Rise & Shine is a perfect stop before or after hitting the slopes all day.
On your next visit to Winter Park, make sure to stop at Rise & Shine to experience the fun, cozy, coffeehouse atmosphere and homemade breakfast at my favorite cafe. Peter Baldo, owner of Rise & Shine and coffee perfectionist, has been kind enough to offer guests of Winter Park Lodging Company any specialty drink for a dollar off!
