A few months ago, Matt and Lindsey Tewanger found the answer to a little problem. Without fail, at the end of every week, the owners of Cookie Cravings Bakery would have cookies left over.

First, they gave them away to neighbors. Then, Matt says, they saw an opportunity to turn these still-good treats into a weekend promotion. Dubbed "Cookie Happy Hour," any cookies that remain at the two-year-old Italian Village bakery come Sundays are half-off (about $1 each) from 2 to 3 p.m.

"It's crazy how it's caught on," Matt says of the happy hour that debuted in late 2013. "It's gotten to the point now where you've got to get there at 2 [because we sell out]."

Pop into the 400-square-foot bakery, and you'll typically see three to four styles of cookies on the counter-white chocolate with sea salt and pistachio, Mexican hot chocolate and honey cardamom shortbread, plus a few seasonal flavors, including the popular blueberry goat cheese.

"It's something like a breakfast cookie," says Matt, who honed his pastry skills in The Refectory kitchen and calls Cookie Cravings a savory take on a traditional bakery.

If they're sold out of cookies by the time you get to the shop, check out some of their other treats, like savory crepes, cinnamon rolls or blackberry sticky buns.
