Nice cookies, chewy, filled with chocolate and other goodies, its nice in particular if you need to grab something to warm you up on the go. calorie county people, beware!

Staff are not very friendly but polite.

“I gained a few pounds thanks to this cookies!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

I lived for about 6 months in Oxford and I went to this biscuit shop very often.
I must say that this are the best cookies I've ever tried , and they are all hand made and fresh.
There's also a Ben's Cookies` shop in London , same lovely taste!

“best cookies ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

This is just a cookie shop, not a restaurant, why is it listed as such???
But so much better than Millie's cookies. Also I contacted the company and they use all-butter, no vegetable fats in their cookies, which is great. Possible palm oil use in their peanut butter cookie as most peanut butters have palm oil.

“Warm, gooey, delicious cookies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

You may be able to find Ben's Cookies in some other cities, but that doesn't detract from their charm. They're served the way cookies are meant to be, warm and still gooey in the centre. It's nice to get some and eat them while exploring the covered market.

“Pay by white, lovely, fresh and warm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

The Ben's cookies stall hidden away in the covered market is the original stall. The cookie's are made fresh on the premise's despite the small size of the stall. The cookie's are laid out fresh and you pay by weight so there is no disappointment when the server selects you the small cookie. The cookie's are lovely and warm, with fudgy slightly cakey (but not dry) centres. They are larger than your average chocolate chip cookie as they are quite fat as well. The chocolate is melty and warm and delicious.
Tins are available to purchase in different sizes, these are beautiful red tins with quentin blake illustrations on them- we still keep these to contain other foods and a tin of these cookies make a perfect gift.
