Chip, the famed Astoria cookie bakery, is opening a shop in Sunnyside–near the 40th Street subway station.
The Sunnyside location is scheduled to open at 45-05 40th St. Tuesday and will be the company’s sixth bakery since it was founded in Astoria in July 2017.
The shop is known best for its thick cookies and zany flavors— including fan favorites such as funfetti, s’mores, oatmeal apple and peanut butter.
The company has about 40 cookie recipes and offers about four flavors at any one time.
The cookies are baked in-shop with the batter prepared nearby at a commercial kitchen.
The first Chip launched at 30-06 34th St. In 2018 the company opened another in the Ditmars section of Astoria at 22-04 33rd St.
Last year it opened a location in Long Island City—at 42-15 Crescent St.– and another in the West Village in Manhattan. Last month, it opened its first Brooklyn shop in Williamsburg.
The company opened an ice cream shop in 2018 near the intersection of 41st Street and 31st Avenue but that closed last year.

No biggie. Too sweet, and expensive. Not worth it.
Wow! The cookies are highly recommended! They are a bit steep at $4 per, but well worth it!
All the best to them and I hope they will be around for years to come.
ALERT: unsuspecting new businesses in Sunnyside are often targeted for membership by the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce.
Take their money and allow them to shower you with compliments, but the moment they ask for your money, show them the door!
Only Trump lovers could be triggered by an article about cookies…
Finally something i would wait in a long line for.
Delicious! I think i now know what i will be spending my stimulus check on. Cookies and alcohol.
My friend joked that the band-aid after the vaccine will be billed to us as 600 dollars.
hah, that is funny. usually a band aid is in the six figure price range. must have gotten a discount.
Uh-oh for our quarantine waistlines, but this is GREAT news! And during a pandemic. That’s entrepreneurship!
Yo Patty D comes out da closet!
I can’t wait. Finally a non Indian, Colombian, Mexican or Tibetan food store opens here.
i dont know if this is the real P Dorfman but I remember a few years ago railing against gentrification and supporting any new hip ventures. Yeah cookies are hip.
If it expands your waistline it’s good gentrification. If it means you have to circle the block a few more times and park further from home it’s listen all y’all this SABOTAGE.
