Editorial Review of Bleeding Heart Bakery

Painted green wooden floors, green carpet, powder blue walls and oodles of display cases make this spot a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Expect the usual impressive assortment of USDA-certified organic desserts, as well as some new breakfast options.

The spot has long been home to different bakeries. Now, owner Michelle Garcia and her team of dedicated organic-o-philes have cleaned the space up and gotten certified by Indiana Certified Organic LLC (a third-party certifier, according to one of the peppy employees).

With all the excitement of moving, Garcia decided to add some new items to the menu. Check out the Elvis brownie, a rich chocolate chunk with peanut butter andótry to guess, but you probably won't guess rightóbacon! Also new are the "toasties," toasted two-organic-egg sandwiches that ring in at only $2.50; additional toppings cost ya 75 cents and range from feta to fresh spinach. Coffee is on the menu as always, along with a $4 cake-of-the-day, $4 homemade granola and a little organic market-type area full of products from companies that give back. And a little heads-up for all you playground folk: Come summer, watch for a Bleeding Heart Bakery ice cream bicycle at the park kitty-corner from this organic wonderland.

Average cost: <$10
