I went there the other week for lunch with my friend, Sarah, and it hit the spot. I have eaten at Cookies numerous times before, but I had never been there as a food critic. Here’s the basic info.:
- Location: on the corner of Clayton Street and College Avenue
- Phone number: 706-353-2461
- Web site: Don’t have one
- Reservations: Don’t take them, but you don’t need them
- Price: Great for sandwiches, little pricy for extra items- for lunch: $7-10
- Best meal to eat there: definitely lunch
- Open and close: probably something like 11-4 p.m. They’re not open for dinner, but they’re open Monday-Saturday
- Group-friendly: definitely a girls’ place, but it’s cute inside
The main bulk of Cookies’ menu consists of hot sandwiches. Each sandwich comes with Lays potato chips and a freshly-baked chocolate chip cookie. I had the Veg Wedge sandwich. To me, there’s nothing better than a hot, toasted sandwich. It was perfect. They put this special sauce on it, almost like Thousand Island dressing, but it is a great complement to the crunchy veggies inside.
I also ordered a bag of carrots and a Fat Free Yoplait yogurt to go along with my meal- no chips. They added about $2 onto my order, but I really like carrots and yogurt. I thought it was worth it.
They also have crushed ice and really good tea. I have never been in the restaurant when it wasn’t impeccably clean.
Sarah ordered the hot ham and cheese, and she loved it. We came to Cookies on a rainy day, and the toasty sandwich tasted amazing.
Of course, Cookies isn’t named cookies for their chips. If you have a cookie craving, go there. Wedding cookies, snickerdoodles, cinnamon toast cookies, chocolate chip and other varieties sit patiently in their front case. All the cookies are baked daily, and they’re amazing.
I almost forgot the best part! They have three main areas in which to dine: upstairs, downstairs and outside! There are four or five tables set up on the corner, and they are the perfect place to sit when it feels nice outside.
Overall, Cookies is the best place to go for a lunch date. With a girlfriend, a boyfriend or your mom, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. It’s cute, quaint and inviting. Go, come back, and tell us what your experience was like!
