Location: 1115 Castlefield Avenue, Toronto
I recently mentioned that there aren’t nearly enough cookie shops in the city. I mean, you can never have enough cookies, but the handful of shops we have in the GTA definitely isn’t enough.
Well, here’s one more, though the location is in an industrial area that’s a bit out of the way (they offer delivery on their website, and I suspect that’s where they do most of their business).
It’s a tiny shop, but they offer a dizzying array of cookies; I decided to get six, and it was exceptionally difficult to pick from the many, many delicious looking choices.
I ultimately went with pistachio milk chocolate, peanut butter Nutella, Mars Bar cookie, Italian milk chocolate gianduja, hazelnut praline (Ferrero Rocher), and milk chocolate brownie. All the flavours looked so good, though. I wanted all of them, but that wouldn’t have ended well for anybody.
They’re solid cookies, but they have a cakey texture that you only get from cookies that have been engineered to be perpetually chewy. I’m guessing this is due to their delivery-heavy business, which means the cookies probably won’t be consumed until a day or two after they’re baked, if not longer.
Don’t get me wrong — they’re quite tasty, but I prefer the classic dense and buttery cookies that they serve at a place like Craig’s. There’s nothing wrong with the cakier variety they serve here, but the crispy/chewy texture of a more traditional chocolate chip cookie can’t be beat.
Still, the flavours were all top notch (I particularly enjoyed the peanut butter Nutella), and despite my minor quibbles with the texture, they’re tasty cookies.
