Help! Need "homemade" cookies tomorrow - Pasadena
- The Oracle Mar 24, 2007 05:13 PM
Help! Was supposed to make 4 dozen homemade cookies for a lunch thing tomorrow - but I've run out of time and can't do it -- where can I pick up yummy 'homemade-like" cookies in Pasadena (or Arcadia) on a Sunday??
If you know the approx. price per dozen, that would be helpful too! And, if you have a favorite kind at that place -- please share the scoop!! (I'm not really looking for a particular kind of cookie - just something YUMMY!)
Thank you 'hounds!
There is a place in Burbank, and I don't remember the name. Delicious, big, buttery cookies, in a variety of flavors, such as chocolate chip and peanut butter.
There's a Mrs. Fields in Old Pas at the Paseo Colorado. I know it's probably not what you are looking for, but their mini-cookies are something like $3-4 a dozen, if I remember correctly. They are pretty tasty, when fresh-made.
If you want Armenian/Persian cookies, go to Paradise Pastry in Glendale. So, so good, and many varieties to choose from. They will not look homemade though (too nice), unless you get something very simple.
Do yourself a favor and take a short hop up to Porto's. You'll be glad you did. Suggestions: Sweet cheese, guava, guava w/cheese, chocolate, almond, brownies, and my personal favorite, cream and pear...too big, cut them in half. Plenty of cookie too. www.portosbakery.com/bakery.htm
If you can't get there, go another time and sub for Viktor Benês Bakery at Gelsons, Paseo. You can enter from either Colorado or Green. :)KQ
Also, just thinking, do Europane and Lovebirds have cookies? I don't know their hours, but they are on Colorado Blvd., near Lake Avenue, in Pasadena.
Lovebirds has cookies (see the link below for details):
Or, here's a place that I found online in Arcadia: Planet Cookies. The name sounds good-- could be interesting. It's near the Krikorian theatre (more info below):
