The best cookies ever!

We live in Colorado and took an enormous road trip to meet family in Boyne Mt. One of the major highlights of our trip was getting Tom's Mom's Cookies! We have had them several times before and thought they were the best we had ever had. We've tried to buy some as good, we've tried to bake some as... read more

Wasn't blown away by the cookies. Maybe because we ate them a day later. They were good but nothing extraordinary in my book. Also, chocolate chunks are large, not really my thing.

One of the people in our group, on a short visit to Harbor Springs, found Tom's Mom's Cookies and brought a few back to our resort to share with others. That first taste of the delicious home made taste cookies resulted in many return trips to this little desert shop by many in our group. They had a big variety... More

You will not have better cookies in your lifetime. The chocolate chunk cookie that I had was unbelievably good. Rich, succulent chocolate chunks. Freshly made cookie dough that melts in your mouth. You will not be disappointed.

Best cookies you'll ever eat! This is a Harbor Springs staple and a must-go when you are traveling through Northern Michigan.

Went here based on reviews online. ..found the cookies to be just ok. We enjoyed the cookies at Crooked Tree Breadworks to be better. ..and the goodies at Small Batch around the corner to be a better choice for "junk" food

It should be against the law to sell cookies that taste this good. I am sure they are calorie free. NOT!! GOT TO GO GOT TO HAVE

fast service and lots of cookie options. The chocolate chip "classic" was my favorite, large chunks of gooey chocolate. No bathroom or indoor seating. Literally just a cookie counter and a fridge case with sodas.

My favorite time to visit Tom's is early in the day when I have a chance to get their day old cookies. This time, no luck, though, as we enjoyed a few hours sitting by the harbor before cookie shopping. You can never go wrong with one of these crazy good cookies. It's a tiny little place on Spring Street,... More

I liked the pecan and caramel, but the cookie was much to big. The peanut butter cookie crumbled into pieces :( and the oatmeal was sold out and was going to take 5 minutes according to one person or 15 minutes according to another staffer. I think I wasted $18 on subpar cookies, Nestle and Martha's Cookie Jar beats this... More
