Don't cry for the demise of cake balls. Smile because they happened.
The Bleeding Heart Bakery at 1010 North Blvd. officially closed last month, leaving a noticeable gap in the downtown Oak Park plaza where it resided.
The Oak Park location had legions of local fans who've clamored to the bakery's specialties and punk rock ethos. When an employee , hundreds of customers threw support and well wishes the store's way.
But earlier this year, owners said the Oak Park location was losing customers to its Elmhurst counterpart, and that they'd be focusing their efforts on creating a new West Town location.
So, what type of business should take its place? It's a relatively small storefront, perfect maybe for some sort of grab-and-go situation. But that's my guess. What would you like to see there?
