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.
