Check out the top spots in Toronto to satisfy your cookie cravings.

Le Gourmand


Le Gourmand is renowned for its world-famous chocolate cookies. These cookies offer a delicious combo of  crispiness and gooeyness, with liquid dark chocolate flowing from within. Not to be outdone, they also offer other yummy options, including a sinfully delicious white chocolate and macadamia, peanut butter and salted butter and caramel. 152 Spadina Ave.

Andrea’s Cookies


At Andrea’s, the cookies aren’t just pretty—they’re delicious too. Each week, the menu features six flavours that rotate based on demand, classics, new creations, and seasonal options. Current favourites include birthday cake, chocolate chunk and Kinder. And if you’re craving something extra decadent, don’t miss out on the strawberry milkshake, brown butter triple chocolate or coconut cream pie flavours. 1632 Bloor St W.

The Night Baker


This cookie shop in Little Italy began life as a delivery company, with owners Mitch and Leanne juggling their day jobs with after-hours baking (and giving the business its name). Former chemists, the duo put their scientific skills to work developing the Night Baker’s signature soft, chewy cookies, which are made fresh every day. Cookies come in an array of rotating, often eclectic flavours, including the popular mistachio featuring roasted pistachios, matcha and white chocolate. 825 College St.



At Romi’s, former Parallel chef Tomer Markovitz has introduced a delicious array of treats, from challah and Jerusalem bagels to babkas, sandwiches and falafel bowls. But, it’s the chocolate chip cookies that steal the spotlight. Crafted with Madagascar bourbon, vanilla paste and Belgian chocolate, these cookies stand out as the undeniable stars of the menu lineup. 744 St Clair Ave. W.

Midnight Cookie

Born out of pandemic boredom and hunger, Midnight Cookie quickly gained popularity with its warm, gooey treats. From their humble beginnings in a home kitchen to a dedicated ghost kitchen, they now have their own storefront at Yonge and Eglinton. Offering a cozy 400-square-foot space, customers can witness the baking process firsthand. Specializing in dough-centric flavors like Kinder and Just the Dough, Midnight Cookie also offers indulgent options like white chocolate fudge and double chocolate chunk. 3 Manor Rd. E.

Craig’s Cookies


Craig’s Cookies is the one place in the city where cookie monsters everywhere are welcome and even encouraged. There are more than 100 flavours on the menu, including chilli chocolate, Cherry Blasters, Pop Tart and Twix. Craig’s has established its presence with five locations in Toronto, extending its reach as far as Newfoundland. 483 Church St.
