New-Fashioned Retro Candy & Sweet Shop

Opened in July of 2020, Cook’s Sweet Boutique is a new-fashioned candy and gift shop located in historic downtown Elgin, IL. This beautiful, charming boutique candy store, features an abundance of classic confections and modern candy favorites to appeal to everyone’s sweet tooth.  The nostalgic candy store experience from childhood has been re-imagined for the next generation, stocking everything from retro candy to all of the sours and novelty candy the kids crave today. 

Cook’s Sweet Boutique carries the best of gourmet, original and “of-the-moment-products” that are new and upcoming to the area, such as 40 Below Joe and other caffeinated confections. Additionally, they have many bottled sodas, fudge, caramels, macaroons, ice cream novelties, as well as a rotating menu of local artisan treat-makers and bakers who pop-up to showcase their goodies. 

We also have two micro-party spaces for private events or families who would like to relax above the magic of a candy shop.

From cutesy to clever, the Sweet Boutique has it all, with gifts for every occasion large and small, including novelty T-shirts, housewares, accessories, and toys all with a candy and ice cream theme.
