Looking for the best cookie shop in Sydney

Hi Everyone,

I'm from Canada and I have a friend living in Sydney who's birthday is coming up and I really want to send him a batch of gooey homemade tasting Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. I've been talking to him about these a lot and he's never tried them before. I think he'd just crack up if on his birthday he got a delivery at his door with a box full of them.

So I've been googling a little bit and I haven't had any luck. Does anyone know of a place that makes great cookies and delivers? They really need to be Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. Please let me know, even the place doesn't have that kind, but makes a variety of other cookies, I can convince them to make a special batch.

Please let me know. I'd greatly appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!

  1. It is almost impossible to get NorthAmerican style cookies in Austrlaia.

    1. The closest thing we have to Canadian style cookies here is Subway cookies.
      Every other cookie is baked into a rock-hard hockey puck, with the exception of "Rock Cakes" which are nice and soft. Go figure!! Also peanut butter, while available, is not as widely used as a flavouring/ingredient /sandwich filling as it is in Canada. I'm going back to Canada for a holiday in July and you can bet that I'll be eating some delicious chewy soft cookies and some peanut butter cups.

      1. The best cookies in Sydney I think, if they're still there, are Mrs Fields...There used to be a shop in the food hall underneath Myers on the Pitt st Mall.

          i don't think these are going to be like the american style cookies described...

          1. re: kmh

            Mrs Fields is an American brand of American style cookies. I'm not sure you'll get anything closer.

            I'm sure mall cookies weren't what you had in mind, but Mrs. Fields do make a peanut butter cookie here in Australia.

        2. Hmmmm I dont think its fits your needs, but there is a cupcake store in Pitt St in the CBD that does a real mean Peanut Butter cupcake.... NExt door to the quite good authentic japaneese place 1 block south of the maal - western side of the st

            I realize this post is more than a year old, but are you still looking for those cookies? Because I can provide you exactly what you're looking for.
