“Just a few minutes down the road - very large grocery store with reasonable prices. Lots of other shops nearby also. To get here, turn left at the stop light at the complex entrance then left at Crawfordsville Road (by the light at CVS). Kroger is about 5 miles on your left.”

“The kindest most exuberant baker you could ever hope for, Rene is the epitome of a great baker. Wonderful pastries, breads, cakes, cookies...list goes on. Small bakery to go in and out but in the heart of Broad Ripple where you can walk around and take in the sights, sounds, and shops on the street. Makes for a lovely stroll.”
