In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie day on May 15th, we wanted to serve up some sweet spots in Atlanta where you can score the best of the batch. Whether you like your chocolate chip cookies crispy or soft, Atlanta offers an array of award-winning choices sure to please even the most discerning cookie connoisseur. Go ahead, try them all. It’s all part of the job, right mom?


The Cookie Studio
The Cookie Studio is often lauded for the “best cookies in Atlanta,” and their choclate chip is no exception. They offer an assortment of cookie and sweet treats including gluten-free options and coffees. While the price ($2 a cookie) might seem steep given the size, a percentage of each sale goes to the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children so it is satisfing on many levels.

Muss and Turners
Who knew this popular brunch and burger spot also boasted a bakery with out-of-this-world cookies? Their mammoth chocolate chip cookie is packed with generous chocolate chunks. It is certainly big enough for wee ones to share—so mom can score a bite too, woohoo!

Café Lapin
The chocolate chip cookies at this popular BYOB ladies-who-lunch spot are not to be missed. Hearalded as a “masterpiece” by Two time James Beard award winner Shirley O. Corriher, they are a little crispy & chewy, very thin, with the perfect amount of chips. You can taste the real butter and sugar, and know these are the real deal.

Like an upscale Houston’s this place is a good spot for “family date night” if you  are feeling fancy. With complimentary valet and a full menu to please the whole gang, be sure to save room for dessert. They serve up their chocolate cookie warm in a skillet, with a scoop of ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce. If that ain’t enough to get them to finish their vegetables then nothing will!

Ali’s Cookies
This cookie shop serves up an array of flavors (r
ed velvet cookie, pecan praline, Georgia peach, white chocolate macadamia nut, double chocolate, german chocolate), but the classic chocolate chip is the real winner. They also sell custom cookie cakes for special occasions, or even by the slice if you just need your fix. How sweet is that?
