“go there now”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

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.

“YUMMY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

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.

“Secret treat that's better than downtown NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

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!

“Big small Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

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. There is both street parking and a small parking lot across the street. And, even though the sales floor is very small, you can grab your cookies and enjoy munching on them right outside on their patio. When cookies are this good you must stop in. I believe Tom's Mom's Cookie's can also be ordered and shipped.

“Grab a dozen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

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!
