Delicious hot, fresh cookies – After reading that you could create your own cookie, I was totally intrigued by the Cookie Lounge. We went there this evening and had the most lovely experience. You pick your dough and up to 3 mix ins, and can actually watch them prepare your special cookie. Then you wait while absorbing the delicious smell and waahlaah, you have fresh, warm/hot cookies! The cookies themselves were so flavorful and unique--I loved the lemon with blueberry, it even smelled just like lemon cake. I'm not a milk drinker, but you can also create your own flavored milk here! If you enjoy cookies and don't mind waiting for them, this place is a must. It's a bit hard to find, it really is on 22 1/2 Street, but once you find it, you've found a gem!
Excellent – I have made 4 trips to the cookie lounge and have yet to be disappointed. Their selection is amazing and the concept is well executed. I'm hooked on the vanilla sweet cream cookies with the caramel bits.
My only suggestion is that when ordering a half dozen or dozen, to put each cookie in a wrapper before putting it in the box. By the time I got home, the cookies had cooled (expected with the drive) but they had melded together in one great big gooey, yummy glob. That's ok for a single person, but for someone taking something back to work, it wouldn't not have worked out so well.
Yummy!! – I recently had a cookie from the Cookie Lounge. It was warm and full of M & Ms and really big! It was the perfect thing to satisfy that mid-afternoon sweet tooth! If only I had a glass of milk to go with it! Next time! And there will definitely be a next time!
A Cookie Lovers Dream Come True – I ordered a dozen cookies last week from the Cookie Lounge and was very happy with how fresh and yummu they were. The great thing about the Cookie Lounge is that you can choose your dough and the mixings so you can be as creative or classic as you want to be. I got a brown sugar dough with Reeses Pieces and semi-sweet chocolate as well as a specialty cookie with toffee and pecans. YUM! Cookie Lounge delivers and they validate parking if you want to run by their location on West Campus. They also have a nice lounge area where you can study, hang out, and enjoy your treats.
hot & fresh from the oven! – We had cookies to share in my office and they were amazing! Warm, soft, and delicious. I had one filled with pecans and other gooey goodness. They are great & you won't want to eat just one! I can't wait to tell my boyfriend about them because he is a cookie junkie. He is hooked on another local cookie company but it now looks like they have some competition.
