Who makes the best cookies?

I have to take cookies to work tomorrow for a baby shower. I dont have time to make I need to know where I could buy some tasty cookies that are already made. I have to go to Kaiser on Sunset tomorrow so I will need to find some place between Kaiser and Marina Del Rey. Any recommendations?
Driving down to Sunset I will be taking LaBrea to if there are any good cookie places on that route...I could leave early enough to stop and get some.
Thanks in advance.

  1. Didi Reese in Westwood if you are willing to get up a bit earlier or go later tonight to get them.

    1. re: splittle

      The cookied at Didi Reese aren't that good. they are just absurdly cheap, so the novelty of a really cheap cookie is what bring people back. As for the cookie itself, it just tastes like shortening.

    2. Deluscious Cookies are quite good, albeit a bit pricy.

      1. Susina on the corner of Beverly Blvd. + Detroit has delicious tiny assorted handmade italian cookies by the pound. There are probably about a dozen different kinds (?) that you can mix and match. I think they're $20/lb. Not sure if that's too pricey if you need to buy a large quantity for a crowd.

        1. Everything that I've had from Canter's Bakery (Fairfax and Oakwood) has been quite tasty and not expensive at all. Maybe some 3rd and Fairfax Farmer's Market bakery stalls open that early, though I'm not sure.

          1. One of my all time favorites for cookies has always been
            B & L's on 3rd and Corning. Classic old style that you can still tate the butter in. Monaco Kisses....yum!
