Soft and gooey… just like cookies are meant to be, it really does not disappoint.

One reviewer said: “These are the best cookies you will ever taste. For a simple reason, they are freshly baked several times a day.

“Not too sweet and several types of cookies. All kinds of chocolate, macadamia, fruit, coconut, whatever you want them to have. When you cross a wide street, you can’t help the smell and be tempted to buy. Well done. Can’t tell them no.
