You can smell this place from a mile away! We were lured in by the delicious scent. A small shop where you can see the staff prepping and baking. A little pricey, but very rich and delicious cookies. They even sell milk! The staff was very friendly and nice. I was paid a compliment on my dress as soon as... More

$1.75 for an average size peanut butter cookie is a bit over the top! We had one three times the size at a small cafe on Bellevue for the same price.

Loved the oatmeal butterscotch cookie. Highly recommend. The chocolate chip was also great. We didn't try anything else but they all looked good. I think they usually have 5-6 varieties. Was hoping for some more eclectic varieties but they were still worth a visit.

We walked the wharf three different days and I managed to get something every day from here. Shortbread was buttery, chocolate chip cookies delicious and the snickerdoodles scrumptious.

We could not stay out of this place. The smell of fresh baked cookies was resistible. We got cookies every night we were in Newport. Very good.

My children and I stopped in to pick up some cookies for an afternoon snack. The chocolate chip cookie I had was one of the best I've ever had! My children had the M&M cookie and said it was "really yummy". The girls working were very friendly.

One of the few shady spots at Bowens Wharf. Since you are required to purchase something to sit here, grab a cold tea and a snickerdoodle and take a break, There may be live music, too.
