I need a big glass of milk!

This is the best local place for cookies. A constant rotation of about a dozen sugary treats. They are always making more, but you may have to wait 15 minutes. Can't rush these delicacies. Just off the main street in h.springs. go,enjoy!

I walk in with the intent of enjoying the aromas and maybe buying one or two cookies. I walk out with half a dozen cookies, delighted by my selection and justifying the splurge as a treat - I might gain a little weight while my wallet looses it for me.

We return to the Little Traverse Bay area annually and this is one of our stops every time (okay --- we actually probably stop here almost every day during the trip). Really cute shop. There can be long lines in the summer so get there early for a good selection. In all honesty they can sell out of the favorites... More

We stopped by this little place hidden on a side street and bought a variety of cookies to try. All the flavors were delicious and it was fun to watch the staff work behind the counter weighing out the flour and preparing the dough. They have tins that are great for gift-giving too. The cookies were on the pricy side... More

This is such a fun place to visit, even though we're not huge sweets consumers. The building is quaint, the staff pleasant and enthusiastic and the variety interesting.

The cookies are doughy delicious and worth a stop...or two. BUT both times we visited they were out of the coconut almond which was a bummer. I settled for the oatmeal choc chip and was left wondering if they even added any oatmeal because the chocolate overpowered any presence of oatmeal. They have a good thing going though.

We were excited to try these cookies after seeing a T.V. special that featured this shop, among others. We had to Google it to find it as it is tucked away on a side street. They were out of the cookie I wanted to try....the one with almonds and coconut. Instead both my husband and myself had cookies that contained... More

Must stop and pick-up cookies .... Only suggestion for owner - samples, especially for those of us visiting and unfamiliar with taste! Not cheap cookies and line out the door! The peanut butter cookie was GREAT!
