Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband is running the Austin Marathon next month, and in what has become a pre-race tradition, I am looking for the best chocolate chip cookies in Austin.

  1. My personal favorite is the Vegan Big John at Whole Foods downtown. They're as big as Frisbees and you can buy them in boxes of 4 for $3.99. And delicious to boot.

    1. Upper Crust Bakery's Black Gold cookie is the best cookie I've ever had. It's chocolate chocolate chunk with walnuts.

      San Francisco Bakery also has really good chocolate chunk cookies.

      1. The chocolate chip cookies at the Double Tree on 15th Street are amazing.

        1. I love love love chocolate chip cookies.

          Texas French Bread has good ones. If you're not a purist, consider the Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies at Upper Crust. The texture is wonderfully chewy and the chocolate chunks are dark and rich. There are pecans in those, too.
