Look out Sugar Sweet Sunshine, some sugary competition is on the way. Two blocks west of the neighborhood favorite, a new bakery is currently under construction at 84 Rivington Street (aka 145 Orchard). This corner store previously hosted the Suite Orchard boutique, and more recently, a series of joint pop-ups by Reebok and Reed Space.

Tell-tale window treatments were taped to the windows within the last few days, arriving just a couple months after MAN Architecture PC first filed the necessary permits with the DOB. Some deep digging reveals that Sweet Buttons – a bakery specializing in “bite size desserts” – is the forthcoming occupant of this high-profile commercial space.

Here’s a description of what we can expect from the 1,080 square-foot Sweet Buttons at 84 Rivington:

The bakery’s concept is manifested in a custom panel ceiling where thousands of multi shaded purple buttons are “spilled” across the ceiling.  A white laminate counter contains both open air and refrigerated low iron glass dessert displays on the sales floor, while a full kitchen and storage area occupies the lower level.

DOB documents further disclose that plans are afoot to change the Certificate of Occupancy in the cellar to instead accommodate a full kitchen setup.
