Sometimes, you just want to have your cake and eat it too! And if your family vacation takes you through scenic Richmond, Vermont, On The Rise Bakery offers just that…literally. A wonderful place to stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, On The Rise is more than just a quaint eatery; it’s kid-heaven. Located adjacent to a park, kids can burn off energy while waiting for their bagels or muffins.

Even better, On The Rise is dedicated to sustainable food services. Most of what they serve comes from the local farming community, and if you’re looking for gluten-free fare, you’ll be right at home! (Another bonus: the building is equipped with wi-fi.)

Says MissMagPie of Find and Go Seek, an awesome guide for all things Vermont, “There are several tables set up inside the building and on the deck. Within eyesight is Richmond Volunteers Playground if the kids want to run and stretch their legs. There is even a sandbox right on the porch of the restaurant. In the evenings this is also a venue for local musicians.”
