This is the place that you have to stop at every time you are within fifty miles of. These cookies are on the death row last meal menu. Please do yourself a favor and stop in here load up on deliciousness then realize you didn't buy enough for the trip home. So turn around and grab some more.

This is a wonderful place to find excellent baked cookies! If you visit in the morning you have a good chance of seeing the preparation of the great variety of cookies served here.
