👋 Annalise here. On the Rise Bakery is an east-side destination for huge, soft, fresh-baked cookies and other flour-laden goods.

What to expect: To get to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen's bakery, you first navigate through the peaceful Solanus Casey Center.

  • There's seating, plus relatively affordable baked goods including the cookies ($3), plus loaves of bread (starting at $5), muffins ($2) and bagels with cream cheese ($2).

How it works: The bakery runs an employment skills program to train people who were incarcerated or in substance abuse treatment. Participants work at the bakery, get housing and counseling, and take classes.

Stop by: 1780 Mount Elliott St., open Tuesday-Saturday, hours vary.
