    the plain and cognac brownies from surdyk's are delectable. i've taken them to phoenix when visiting my mother and we cut them into
    small pieces and savor every bite. she is a fabulous bar maker and thinks these brownies are the best (me too!)

      How could I have forgotten Bars Bakery? I must be losing it. Besides great brownies, I pine for their Congo Bars.

      Also, Wilde Roast Cafe deserves a shout-out for a great brownie, too.

        My vote would go for Salty Tart. Have you tried?

          Depends on what you like in a brownie. I'm not a fan of Bread & Chocolate's brownies, but like their other items very much. My favorite "basic" brownie is from Wuollet and Birchwood Cafe has a few great varieties (like German Chocolate) but I'm not sure how often they carry the regular type.

            Mississippi Market. I just buy them one at a time. Getting a corner or an edge makes them even better.

              Bread and Chocolate on Grand Avenue. No contest.

                I've not tried Bread and Chocolates, but I love, love, LOVE Bars Bakery's brownies, especially the ones with the caramel. Super yum!

                  I'll echo this - everything I've had at Bars Bakery is spectacular
