Eight varieties of cookies will be available daily, and the menu changes daily.

Don Scheer and his wife Tina Owyoung hope to open their Sugar Sweet Bakery by next weekend.

The desserts-only boutique will offer cake by the slice, brownies and the all-American afterschool classic cookies and milk.

Sugar Sweet Bakery, 18 S. Eastbourne Ave., at the west side of Broadway Village, will carry eight varieties of cookies each day, rotated among a cast of 15 varieties.

The shop also will carry limited-batch treats available until they sell out. It’s a chance for Scheer, the baker behind the couple’s venture, to experiment with new recipes and ideas. The first one will be a coffee cookie dotted with hazelnuts that he’s dubbed “Hazel and Joe.”

Cookies are $1.50 for everyday cookies like snickerdoodles and chocolate chip and $2 for the fancier cookies including the Toffee Turtles. Cake is $4 a slice and brownies are $2.50. Customers can order the treats to go or munch them with milk or lemonade in the limited dining area.
