West Town Bakery and Diner

The unlikely collaboration between the owners of Roots Handmade Pizza and Bleeding Heart Bakery crumbled faster than a stale cookie, leaving this punky bakery/diner/cake-making showroom in the hands of the pizzeria owners. They've changed the name from Bleeding Heart but left the space mostly the same, tweaking the diner menu with new dishes like steak Benedict and wheat-germ granola pancakes. We're still not impressed with the baked goods (particularly the spongy doughnuts), but when the kitchen takes one of the croissants and turns it into a satisfying breakfast sandwich, you won't hear us complaining.

Brunch was pretty good at this spot. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Love the booths! My veggie omelette wasn't very exciting but the B&G was great! Also, the Bloody Mary was meh. And the baked goods!!!! Sooo good. Cake pops and everything you could desire!


Brunch at this neighborhood spot is a must. Their dog friendly front patio is perfect for sipping mimosas and their bakery is A+ (try the Chris. P Creme doughnuts, I promise). I grab coffee from this place every weekend as they proudly serve Dark Matter. The service can be laggy at times as they seem to be sparsely staffed sometimes, but they’re always very accommodating. I’m also a huge fan of dining solo, which the counter is perfect for.
