Minneapolis has shortage of great, authentic bagel spots. Rise Bagel Co. helps improve this problem. This place was much anticipated (I was basically counting down the days until it opened) and it did not disappoint. Their bagels are boiled, topped on both sides (game changer), and baked, which results in chewy and crispy bagels. The shop is owned by two fabulous sisters, Jen and Kate, who made it a mission to taste test bagels from the poster children of bagel cities (Montreal, New York City, etc.) They came back to Minneapolis afterward to open Rise, and everyone in the city is so glad they did. There are plenty of places to sit and relax in the order-at-the-counter space, but it's also a great place to grab brunch and go.
