Sweet New Addition to Sheffield City Centre: Doughboy to open a Cookie Shop on Division Street
SHEFFIELD >> Doughboy, a gourmet cookie takeout company, is opening its doors Saturday 21st May on Division Street next door to Steam Yard.
“Any customer on the opening weekend gets a free cookie!” reads an invitation posted on the shop’s Instagram page.
Doughboy specialises in freshly-baked cookies, including its mainstay – a Bullion Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie. Which you may already be familiar with being the city’s resident chocolate factory.
In addition, Doughboy offers a rotating weekly menu of 5 other cookie flavours. Each inspired by desserts of all kinds; from your favourite chocolate bars, to homestyle bakes and more. They also have a cabinet filled with local hero’s Our Cow Molly Ice Cream for all your scoops and shakes.
Speciality cookies for their opening week include. Dulce Delicious, a white chocolate cookie, spread with salted dulce de leche buttercream and finished with sugar rolled popcorn; Triple Chocolate, all 3 of the chocolate groups packed into a thick set cookie; Glazed Cinnamon Cookie, a spiced cookie with a honey butter glaze; Vegan Lotus Whip, a chocolate chip cookie with a vegan Lotus buttercream and biscuit; and our Smurf Cookie, a classic vanilla sugar cookie with baby blue buttercream.
Doughboy Cookie Shop is the comings together of Max Scotford of Bullion and the guys behind Steam Yard – Nick Pears and Matt Cottril. They’ve been working together on projects for the last 5 years, and when an opportunity to expand into the space next door to Steam Yards site was on the cards – it was a no brainer.
“We are so excited to bring this concept to Sheffield, and we hope the city love the cookies as much as we do” said Scotford. “Bullion featuring as the mainstay cookie for me is a highlight, bringing our craft chocolate to a potential younger generation. There’s also the constant rotation of new and exciting flavours, so your visit to the shop will never be the same with always something new to try or share with friends and family.”
At the shop, Doughboys team bake, top and finish the cookies all on site. It’s great for the customers to visit and see them in action. Once they’re complete, the cookies can be taken away to enjoy at home or gifted to that special someone.
Take-out is scheduled to be open from Saturday 21st May. Best of all, customers on the opening weekend get a free cookie to takeaway. They’re open 11-4, so make sure you get down quick to avoid the rush for a free taste of Doughboy!
