Rise -n- Dine Restaurant Review

: Emory University students and staff keep this little spot hopping with business, so expect a wait, although the team is great at moving things along briskly and the Counter Culture coffee is a reward on its own. Solo diners may want to take a seat at the kitchen bar. Healthy fare is emphasized, so the grits are blended with quinoa and sage; the biscuits are respectable. Rather spicy chicken sausage is made in-house, and you get a pair of patties if you compose your own plate. The kitchen knows how to poach eggs properly, and the cream gravy is tasty. Orange juice is the freshly squeezed variety. Waffles, omelets and scrambles are the major breakfast fare, and pancakes may be had in classic buttermilk and sweet potato versions. Have an egg sandwich for lunch, a meal that will last the entire day.
