Best cookie ever!

We purchased fudge to take home to our family. The fudge was delicious! I also purchased a big chocolate chip, pecan & macadameon nut cookie for $6. Never thought I'd spend $6 on one cookie, but it was big & the best cookie I've ever ate! I'd do it again in a minute!

They have the largest cookies I've ever seen. They were the size of a small pizza and tasted as good as they were big. Just amazing cookies. I also tried their key lime pie and it didn't disappoint either. If you have a sweet tooth, this place is a can't miss.

I can't resist these fresh semi gooey cookies straight from the oven. So delicious! and the ice cream and fudge is just as yummy.

After dinner, we decided to head for some yummy desert. We wandered into the shop, tasted some gorgeous rocky road fudge but settled on the ice cream counter. Between us we had cherry, Kailua almond fudge, mocha, toasted coconut, cookies n cream, brownie bliss and turtle crunch. Wow, every flavour was absolute paradise. Even the waffle cone was lovely.

One cookie, here, can feed four people; huge and delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. I'd come back to sample the fudge or the gelato (could have been ice cream, just didn't get that far)..

My boys were looking for a place to get a milkshake and we noticed the huge cookies in the window. The cookies were a big hit! Fresh, soft, and delicious! We ended up getting a shake too and that was great. The key lime pie on a stick was enough for 2 and it was outstanding! The staff is great... More

Wanted a sweet after a salty dinner and picked this local sweet shop over kilwins because we can get kilwins back at home. Ice cream was good and ordered a cookie to go since so many people on trip advisor have raved about them. I like my cookies crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. These cookies are... More

Like most places in Key West everyone was friendly. We went for the cookies and I read in the reviews this was a good place. I completely agree. My family got 1 big cookie to share it was the best very moist and rich. I kinda wish I could have tried some other flavors but a 6 dollars a cookie... More

Well they have these huge cookies that are priced around $6-7 dollars but are soooo worth it, but I have to say in a shop full of cookies and fudge my favorite was the Cake size brownie with walnuts. It was so rich and decadent. We purchased it on Tuesday and it was still soft on Friday... delicious...
