Nashville is home to a new breakfast spot. Rise Biscuits Donuts is now open at 153 5th Ave. N. Like the name suggests, the growing chain's concept involves specialty biscuits and doughnuts.

What's on the menu?

Rise Biscuit Donuts prepares buttermilk biscuits from scratch every half hour, according to its website. The biscuits are topped with items like bacon, sausage, friend green tomatoes, pimento cheese and Righteous Chicken—the latter brined in buttermilk, fried and served on a biscuit with other toppings and sauces. You can also find "hashpuppies," its signature cheesy potatoes.

Doughnuts listed on its Memphis menu include raspberry jelly, crème brulee, maple bacon, chocolate icing, a cronie (crossiant/dougnut combination with vanilla pastry cream and raspberry icing) and a couple other varieties. 

Founded six years ago in Durham, North Carolina, Rise now has 16 locations with two opening soon, including the Nashville outpost. The company has one other Tennessee location in Memphis.

Similar to other daytime cafes in the area, Rise will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Follow Rise Nashville - Downtown on Facebook for regular updates.
