Tom's Mom's Cookies is a tiny little unassuming place with a line out the door for good reason. Stop in while you're in Harbor Springs and grab a dozen. They're all delish, but my favorite is the old-fashioned molasses. Yum!

A wonderful place to get a special snack for the beach, or after dinner instead of ice cream. Friendly and locally run. Price is likely based on quality and percentage of the year that they have heavy business. Highly recommended.

We stopped by this place because it was off the Main Street, and it was very busy at all the coffee shops....we just happened to see it. Anyhow, we were totally surprised by it. Outstanding cookies...and when I say outstanding, WOW! I tried the original but also the cherry chocolate. I may have to return because writing this review is... More

I come in for every visit up to harbor springs. Cookies are soft an full of chocolate. My husband loves the snicker doodles. Well worth the wait out the door on holiday weekends.

These are, hands down, the best cookies I have ever had! I particularly love the chocolate/peanut butter. I grew up in northern Michigan and visit the area frequently --- Tom's Mom's is one of the highlights (along with Gurneys sandwiches)! We stop almost daily and take some on the plane too. I consider them an excellent price for the quality... More

I ordered two dozen of these (1 dozen choco pecan; one dozen cinnamon sugar) online for my mom for Mother's Day based on a recommendation from my sister who had traveled to Michigan and been to their store. The sugar cookies were mediocre at best, with none of us finishing a cookie; the chocolate pecan were simply awful, with the... More

Tom's Mom's is a unique experience, and serves one thing: Cookies! No sit-down area (the whole building is about the size of some people's living rooms); you enter, pick the cookies you want, pay, and go. Service is pleasant and professional, owner and manager caring. These are pricey, hand-made cookies with top ingredients. I read some reviewers complaining about the... More

This was my 2nd time, my families first. It is a tiny shop with the most delicious cookies I've ever had. It does cost quite a bit ($18/dozen) but it's worth the splurge. My fav is the white & dark chocolate mix.

We made a plan to stop here Saturday while touring the colors. We saw Tom's Mom's on an episode of UTR Michigan. Best cookies we've ever had! The molasses cookie was even better than our favorite bakery in Frankenmuth. It's crunchy, crispy on the edges, soft & chewy on the inside. WOW. Today I tried the chocolate chip, walnut &... More
