Rise Baking Company headed to Winnebago St.

The former home of Arts + Literature Laboratory at 2021 Winnebago St. in Madison will soon be home to a full service cafe called Rise Baking Company, according to a report from Isthmus.

Rise Baking Company is a collaboration between Gwen Shales and Kyle Johnson, who run Kin-Kin Coffee, currently at 151 E. Badger Road, and pastry chef Debbie Buchanan, who started featuring her baked goods on Instagram during the COVID-19 pandemic and offered a subscription service where people could register to pick up bread from her porch weekly or biweekly.

The cafe will have seating for about 30 people and the space is still undergoing renovation with plans for an early spring opening.
