Second Cup's oatmeal raisin cookie

I love the oatmeal raisin cookies at Second Cup... sometimes. It's hit and miss finding the ones i like because their cookies vary unhappily. Does anyone have information on why this is? Does the distributor vary from store to store?

    For the downtown crowd: The farmer's market at City Hall has an amazing cookie stand. East side, about the 3rd stall up from Queen Street. Yummy oatmeal raisin and awesome macadamia and white chocolate. $3 for six giant cookies, my co-workers just ate all mine in an instant.

          The farmer's market in Nathan Phillips Square has wrapped up for the year, it ended around Thanksgiving. It was every Wednesday during the summer. The booth Mila was talking about is probably the "Farmer's Daughter" booth. They had great baked goods. I went every week for a loaf of their pecan & fruit bread. Very yummy. They have a store out in the Beaches. Here's their website:

            I was familiar with both but had *no idea* the store and the stand were the same business! Thanks for the info.

        A better cookie (imho) at much less cost is Subway's oatmeal raisin one - 3-for-1 costs $1.49 or less. Available everywhere this ubiquitous chain operates. Before you turn up your nose, try one !

          I've seen that some Second Cup's stock Dufflet's cookies. Also, I've seen that they have 'breakfast cookies' (packaged), however the nutrition analysis isn't that great (ie. one serving = 1/2 cookie - who eats 1/2 cookie?)

            I'm not 100% sure but I remember that Starbucks or Second cup used to get cookies from Phipps (near leslie/york mills). It was probably Second cup because starbucks would choose a much larger operation. But if they've switched to dufflets as with their other products i have no idea.

              do you mean the large chewy cookies? i had a friend who used to work at Second Cup and i think she said that their breakfast food was from another supplier (so neither dufflet nor phipps). she couldn't remember the name of this other place though.

                does anyone know what the ingredients are (or how to find them?) for the muffins and scones at Second Cup? I can''t get them on the website
