Best Cookies in Boston, Massachusetts




Flour (Harvard Square, Cambridge)

It’s safe to say we’ve tested all the “regulars” in the array of cookies at Flour Bakery, and they do not disappoint. On our Harvard Square Chocolate Tour, we explain the ins and outs of how the team chose the chocolate that they are sourcing for their cookies. And, they also have some incredible gluten-free cookies and those using alternative grains such as rye flour.

Address: 114 Mt. Auburn Street, Cambridge





FoMu (Jamaica Plain, Boston)

We love baked goods, and on our JP Vegan Chocolate Tour we sample all kinds of treats. One of our favorite cookies is served at FoMu in Jamaica Plain — their mouthwatering array of indulgent vegan treats tantalize the senses, and you’ll never know there’s no milk.

Address: 617 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain, Boston

Roost (Northampton, Massachusetts)

If you have a chance to travel to Western Mass., you cannot miss Roost in Northampton. A bit off the beaten path, this cafe was started by two area couples, and they are known for having the best cookies and bars in Northampton, MA. Try the cowgirl cookie or the gingersnap!

Address: 1 Market Street, Northampton, MA





Bloc Cafe (Union Square, Somerville)

From scratch cookies just make all of the difference! We love the cookies at Bloc Cafe in Union Square, Somerville — most notably their oatmeal chocolate chip cookies which are hearty and oh-so-dippable into a hot tea or coffee.

Address: 11 Bow Street, Somerville, MA





Neighborhoods Cafe (Boston, Massachusetts)

Probably the largest cookie you’ll find in Boston, and one of the tastiest — Neighborhoods is featured on our Fenway Food Tour, and we LOVE everything about them. From their coffee prepared with care to their baked goods to their crepes, stopping here will bring a smile to your face.

Address: 96 Peterborough Street, Boston, MA

Levain Bakery (Boston, Massachusetts)

An international favorite, we definitely enjoy the thick and filling Levain Bakery cookies that are now on Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay. Bet you can’t eat two, they’re so rich and fudgy and delicious!

Address: 180 Newbury Street, Boston, MA
