We are a boutique operation creating cookies that are small, creative and simply delicious. We look to European cafes and bakeries for inspiration; our goal is to provide cookies that are satisfying and not overly sweet or overwhelming in size. Our ideal treat is one that bursts with flavor and satiates the craving for something on the sweet side. Whether a refreshing citrus cookie at the end of dinner or a chocolate cookie with a glass a wine, we hope you find our cookies an inspiring and tasty indulgence!

A Message From the Chef
My love of cookies began as many children: sneaking dough from my mom’s mixing bowl. Luckily there was always just enough dough for my mom to actually bake the cookies for the rest of my family! As an adult, I wanted to share my love of cooking with our son, Jack, so we thought about what we could do and do well. We believed we could add something to our community by baking fresh, flavorful and delicious cookies. I love to share my restaurant experience with our clients by providing cookies that are a bit ‘left of center’: familiar in name but exciting and new in flavor. We like that we can bring cookies to another level and make them a wonderful treat for any occasion. Enjoy!
