While we wait for soon-to-open sweet spots like Christie Cookie and Legendairy Milkshake Bar, there's a new bakery to know about called Baked on 8th. You can find it just up the road from Grimey's New & Preloved Music at 1512 8th Ave. S.
Baked on 8th offers single-serving desserts like cookies, pastries and pies, as well as specialty cakes that can be custom-ordered or consumed at the store.
While you're there, check out the store's outside mural:
