Saw the sign and had to stop. Great variety of gourmet cookies, nice clean shop. A little on the pricey side but fun and delicious

Experience local hospitality and incredible cookies, made on sight by locals... you can even watch them being prepared, on certain days. Their are several types of cookies, all of which are encouragingly offered up for tasting. It's located in a charming building and offers a delightful experience and FANTASTIC cookies! Don't miss this!

Lots of free samples, so take your time. Be sure to try the honey version. These cookies will last several weeks before opening.

This place is always busy. They offer free samples when you walk through the door, which is nice because their cookies are pretty pricey for small cookies. My husband and I have been by twice and the customer service has been excellent both times. The original is God but very salty from sea salt. I like the snicker doodles and... More

Cookies are made while you watch, and samples are given out freely. They are not inexpensive to buy but so unique and tasty. Melt in your mouth good, with several varieties to choose from.
