The former Addie's space will soon have a new tenant focused on a single product: cookies.

Chip Cookies has applied to convert the former breakfast eatery at 5th St. and Main St. into a 2300 square foot chocolate chip cookie bakery.  The company started in Utah and focuses primarily on the single cookie variety, but will also offer a chip of the month (i.e. Cadbury Chip around Easter). You can also snag a bottle of regular or chocolate milk.

"We believe in keeping things simple and focusing on creating an amazing product," Sarah Wilson with Chip Cookies said. 

The new bakery will be 2300 square feet and will include seating for about 22 people. The company has a similar set up with a walk-up bakery combined with delivery in Provo and Salt Lake City.

Chip is already delivering in Boise, limited now to late-nights.  When the new store gets up and rolling, it will be noon-2am Monday-Friday and noon-midnight Saturday. Delivery will continue to run 8pm-2am M-F and 8pm-midnight on Saturday. No cookies on Sunday.

"We don't have an exact opening date, but hope to be up and running by the end of the month," Wilson said. "BUT you know how construction goes..."
