On an Orchard Street block dominated by nighttime business, one dessert shop beginning to flower. And with it, some competition with the beloved Sugar Sweet Sunshine.

As we first reported back in late September, the Sweet Buttons bakery is to open at 84 Rivington Street (aka 145 Orchard). The turnover was quick – Suite Orchard shuttered and the short-lived Reebok-Reed Space experimental effort ran its course. Interior gut renovations followed almost immediately thereafter.

Now three months after work began, the hype machine is starting. Teaser posters are now affixed to the security gates promising that the cupcakery is “coming soon.” Taking a peek behind the window paper confirms – display cases and decor is nearly complete. That splattered paint you see on the ceiling is intentional, being the namesake “buttons” of the establishment.

Sweet Buttons cupcake shop specializes in bite-size desserts and cakes. Sounds like something along the lines of Baked by Melissa…
