Uprise Bakery, located in the spiffy new Ragtag Cinema location, is home to the best bread in Columbia. The whole spelt and honey wheat loaves make for flavorful, dense sandwich bread. The batard is a simple joy sliced, splashed with olive oil and salt and quickly grilled. You can buy their loaves at the farmer’s market or Clover’s, but the quality is far higher if you drop in to the Hitt Street location itself.
The clientele is predictably aimless and Macbook-y; lots of tatoos and Sartre-reading going on here. But if you can get past the stuffwhitepeoplelike.com vibe, you’re in for a real treat. Lunch options are light and salad-oriented – a good place for those on a diet. Pizzas change every week. Right now it’s a four cheese offering; the bacon and bleu cheese version I had a while back was commendable, redolent with the tang of the cheese and the fatty crunch of crisp bacon. The house-made crust was tender and pleasantly toothsome. r />
