Midwest Living Review

Kit Bernardi
This bakery's free coffee, mouthwatering donuts and addictive pecan crunch candies are well worth stopping for.

When Rise 'n Roll opened in 2001, it quickly built a reputation for high-quality baked goods, and the pastries and breads are still mainstays. Though free coffee, sausage bread and breakfast specials (starting at $3.50) bring in the morning customers, it’s the made-from-scratch cinnamon rolls, donuts, cookies, cakes and pies that pack the parking lot all day long. And don’t even think about skipping a sample of the signature pecan crunch candy.

In 2009, the shop expanded its inventory to include locally made Amish food products like pickled vegetables, canned fruits, granolas, jellies, jams and dips. There’s also a good selection of kitchen gadgets, Amish cookbooks and quilt-patterned aprons.

For lunch, a sparkling display case holds Troyer Meats and Cheeses, salads and Hudsonville Ice Cream. In the back kitchen, Amish women wearing white prayer caps and cap-sleeved long dresses keep busy assembling fresh sandwiches to order ($5.39 with chips). Customers have the choice of carrying out or eating in at a long wooden table in the adjacent dining room.

Amish Country locations in Middlebury and Nappanee; Rise ‘n Roll Bakery is open Monday through Saturday. Cash only.
