I read all the reviews before I went there and I don't understand what was so special about these cookies. They cost $1.80 each and I did not like them. I bought 6 different kind to try a variety and ended up tossing them out the car window after trying a piece of each. To me they tasted raw. I'll... More

Worth the price! The staff was so friendly and the cookies are so thick. There are a number of flavors to choose from. We loved the original, peanut butter and cherry chocolate chip! We will bringing back home to Chicago with us!

Ive been going to Harbor Springs every summer for a family visit now for four years. On that visit is always a few stops at Tom's Mom's. They are fantastic, if your in the area its a must stop. My reccomendation is either their choclate chip or their molasses cookies.

I pity the cookie that tries to be like tom's mom's! landmark, earth shaking cookies. one is a meal. varied types of doughy goodness are the reason for the constant lines outside this small shop. if you don't buy a dozen you are a wimp.

Dark Chocolate and Cherry Cookie? Yes, please !!!! 18.00 for a dozen/1.80 a cookie. A bit on the high side. But, I really don't care, worth every penny.

For the secret treat food of the area, take a box of Toms Moms. Nuts, chocolate, macadamias, and lots of wholesome calories-have-a-reason indulgence here. Open late, too. Munchies never had it so good!

After watching the crew from TV Show Under the Radar Michigan visit to Tom's Mom's Cookie's, I just knew that if I was anywhere close to Harbor Springs, MI, that I would definitely grab a dozen for myself. This is a small place just north of main street. I used my GPS to zero in on the location in town.... More

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
