Take a Trip to Rising Creek Bakery
Mount Morris, Pennsylvania, might be a small town, but it offers up a big treat at Rising Creek Bakery & Café. Known for their authentic, homemade salt-rising bread, owner Jenny Bardwell and her husband, Andrew Liebhold, also serve up a variety of homemade truffles, pastries, pies, cakes, cookies, soups, sandwiches, and more!
"My boyfriend and I decided to drive out to Mt. Morris the other day and were so completely and pleasantly surprised when we found Rising Creek," says Rachel Henderson, assistant editor at WV LIVING. "It was a gorgeous day outside—and there wasn't a seat left in the café—so we sat on the back deck, soaking in the sun, listening to the creek, and enjoying incredibly fresh and delicious sandwiches and soup."
The young couple couldn't leave without a loaf of the famous salt-rising bread, either, which Jenny will be the first to admit is not easy to make. But it's become such a popular menu item that the bakery now sells the bread online, and for Jenny, she says, "It’s such a wonderful part of my past."
No matter the weather, Rising Creek is a must-do for anyone within a 50-mile radius (or more) of Morgantown and Mount Morris. Homemade pastries and fresh coffee will keep you cozy on any winter day, and for those warm, sunny spring and summer days, there are more than enough satisfying choices made from many local ingredients.
The café and bakery are open Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
