We'll take any opportunity we can to eat fresh-baked cookies.
Nestle Cookie Shop
In case you didn’t know: Nestlé chocolate opened its own cookie shop in downtown Tucson this fall.
The little shop is fashioned after one of those mall cookie shops, with more than a dozen types of cookies including snickerdoodles, cookie cake slices, cookie sandwiches filled with frosting and more.
Location: 17 N Stone Ave
Hours: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays
This favorite local brunch spot also serves up delicious cookies.
You can find homemade Oreo cookies, lemon cookies, and of course, the classic chocolate chip.
If you're making a special order, the minimum order is a half-dozen (easy) and 48 hour notice.
Location: 2616 N. Campbell Ave.
Hours: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Mondays-Fridays; 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays
Rocco’s Little Chicago Pizzeria
A quarter-pound cookie. Need we say more? Lisa's cookies are "monsters that melt in your mouth." Served warm, you have the option of oatmeal raisin, peanut butter or Ghirardelli chocolate chip with Green Valley pecans.
Location: 2707 E Broadway Blvd
Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays
Time Market is many things and bakery is one of them. Their salted chocolate chip cookie is worth stopping by for in itself, but they also have other options, such as oatmeal raisin, flourless chocolate and ginger molasses.
The already-baked cookies go for less than $3.
Location: 444 E University Blvd
Hours: 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. everyday
