METROPOLIS, IL – I went on a cookie run to Sissy’s Sweet Shoppe yesterday evening on Historic Market Street in downtown Metropolis, IL.

I purchased some Sugar and Raisin Cookies that were baked inhouse. They were still soft and mouthwatering delicious.

Sissy’s is the new bakery and coffee shop that resides in an upscale 2-story building that’s been completely renovated by the owners.

The inside of Sissy’s was built with either reclaimed or original materials. The exposed brick and original wooden floors gives this new sweetery a rustic theme with a modern twist.

In short, the place, people and cookies were awesome making last nights cookie run a great success.

Open 7 days a week! 10-8 M-Th, 10-9 Fri-Sat, 12-8 Sunday
