Bleeding Heart Bakery & Cafe

Doser: Bleeding Heart Bakery & Cafe

Founders: Husband and wife team Vinny and Michelle Garcia

Why we love them: BRB doesn’t just make a chocolate chip cookie. They don’t just make a brownie. They put their expertise, creativity, and inspiration into every single thing they bake. Sure, they’re eager to please—but they’re also out to change perceptions of traditional baking.

Products: Get cakes and pastries with a punk-rock edge at the bakery, or take a seat at the cafe and just try to resist the temptation of a deep fried doughnut breakfast sandwich, hibiscus pancakes or herbed waffles with braised pork belly. They’re also got a juice bar if you’re in the mood for something, er, lighter.
