About Us

Rise Bakery provides a one-of-a-kind gluten-free experience with an expansive menu of baked goods. We set ourselves apart from other gluten-free bakeries by catering to specialty diets without sacrificing taste, texture, or richness. We craft all of our pastries by hand in small batches using premium ingredients. Started by Mike Koritko in 2014 years after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease, Rise Bakery offers a welcoming environment in which everyone can get worry free.

We have a small seating section (currently unavailable until further notice) where you can come in and enjoy breakfast sandwiches and coffee or tea in the mornings. A variety of morning pastries includes croissants, scones, tea breads and turnovers.

For lunch, we serve classic sandwiches and paninis with housemade spreads, toppings, and meats on our freshly baked breads. We also bake pizzas on our housemade crust.  For dessert you can choose from an array of different options!

In addition to gluten-free, we plainly label everything with primary allergen markers (dairy, eggs, soy, nuts) and are happy to help identify a wide variety of other common allergens.

We have a variety of vegan items, including breads, sandwiches, pizzas, and sweets. You can always give us a call at the bakery at 202-525-5204 with specific allergen questions or we can help you on site. Helping people deal with allergies is why we exist as a business, so please let us know how we can best serve you.
