Fresh Cookies the Modern Way at Modern Cookie Co. in Larkspur
January 24, 2012Posted by pamela |
Don't you sometimes wish you could have the perfect cookie, made just for and served fresh out of the oven? Well you can do just that at Modern Cookie Co., Marin's new cookie bakery that recently opened in downtown Larkspur.
Modern Cookie specializes in hot, made-to-order cookies fresh from the oven. It works like this: choose your favorite cookie dough, select mix-ins—like house-made mini marshmallows, nuts, dried fruit, mini peanut butter cups, and chocolate chips, and add a finish such as a drizzle of honey, frosting, or fudge. They'll put it all together for you and bake it up. If pre-made cookies are more your thing, you can choose from a variety of cookies and cookies bars in their display case. They also make ice cream sandwiches using organic Three Twins ice cream.
Different doughs and cookie varieties are offered seasonally (look for sugar cookie and pumpkin during the holidays), and the usual standbys like oatmeal, chocolate chip, and chewy-chocolate brownie are always on hand. Gluten- and dairy-free doughs are available as well.
When possible, Modern Cookie tries to partner with local producers like Three Twins, City Bees honey, Bicycle coffee, and TCHO chocolate. They also try to use organic products whenever its feasible.
Their retail space features free wifi access, as well as a kids' area with a low table for coloring and games, magnetic cookie sheets, and more, so they can keep busy while you relax with a cookie and a cup of coffee.
You'll find Modern Cookie Co. at 25 Ward Street in downtown Larkspur, just off Magnolia Avenue. They're open Tuesday–Thursday from 10 am–8 pm, Friday from 10 am–9 pm, Saturday from 8 am–9 pm, and Sunday from 8 am–7 pm (they're closed on Mondays).
