Rise + Thyme
The chef inspired cafe nestled in the corner of The Exchange Food Hall, Rise + Thyme offers a chance to escape. Whether it be enjoying a fluffy croissant, satisfying your sandwich craving at lunch, watching a passersby, or taking that first sip of a perfectly foamy latte, its possibilities are open and endless.
Rise + Thyme provides every person the opportunity to fall in love with the little things, be it a sweet or savory toast, a fresh salad or sandwich, or decadent French toast.
Your little corner of a very big world.
