Best cookies in downtown / Dupont Circle / Golden Triangle area?

  • 7

I am in the mood for some A+ cookies. Not a fan of Firehook cookies (way too dry). Honestly, the best I can come up with is... Potbelly's. Any other ideas?

  1. What about the Salty Oat Cookie at Teaism? I also like the cookies at Breadline.

      A 2nd enthusiastic vote for the Salty Oat at Teaism! My only problem with them is that I am always torn about whether to get the regular or the chocolate versions of it - I love them both equally.

        I don't like raisins in my cookies, and as far as the chocolate version -- I'm not a fan of all-chocolate cookies. Chocolate chips, yes. But not chocolate cookies. But apart from the raisins, they're not bad.

      2. Try Firehook Bakery - - -their chocolate chip cookies are pretty good.

        1. Sorry didn't see you didn't like firehook . . .

          1. Maybe a bit out of range, but Chatman's D'vine at the Convention Center has excellent, reasonably priced homestyle cookies. Rich and crumbly. Cookies and cakes have a southern slant. Last one I had there was a coconut pecan, they also have some other unusual flavors, no "chocolate chip cookies" here. Unfortunately, they are quite irregular in their stock, best to call ahead for cookies, but there is always something worthwhile out. The sweet potato pie is good. This is one of those fantastic places a stone's throw away very few people seem to know about.

            1. I had a good one at Devon & Blakely's recently. I do think it is a shame that Teaism doesn't sell the Salty Oat without raisins -- other than the raisins, it is a good cookie. The chocolate version is good too but too chocolaty for me.
