Looking for delicious, inexpensive cookies

Hello everyone!

I am looking for a place in D.C. that sells fresh, inexpensive, and delicious cookies. I'm buying for a big crowd-- I would appreciate any leads!

  1. If you can find Otterbein's cookies from Baltimore, you'll be golden. Thin, crispy, delicious-especially the chocolate chip and lemon varieties. Check the Giant.

      Ooh, thank you! I'll check them out!

    2. While obviously not "fresh" there are a number of cookies at Trader Joe's that are quite good (and reasonably priced) - try the Ginger Cats

      1. Patisserie Poupon in Georgetown.

        Patisserie Poupon
        1645 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC

        1. Chez Hareg (European pastries in Little Ethiopia)

          Yas Bakery (Persian, absolutely scrumptious; apparently they've moved to Vienna though

            Seconding Chez Hareg. Cheap and delicious - even the vegan cookies will knock your socks off. It's now a full-service cafe, so the awning reads "Yetenbi Restaurant" instead of "Chez Hareg." It's on 9th between T and U, across the street from Etete. Highly recommended!

            1942 9th St NW, Washington, DC 20001

          2. Mediterranean Bakery & Cafe on Picektt Street (Alexandria) for Middle Eastern cookies/pastries

            Mediterranean Bakery
            352 S Pickett St, Alexandria, VA 22304
