From chocolate and ice cream sandwiches to gingersnaps and old-fashioned sugar, Portland's packed with fresh-baked treats that will bring out the after-school-snacking kid in you. With this list of the city's best cookies all you'll need is a glass of milk.
This Hillsdale hideaway serves up great morning pastries, pies, and seasonal treats, but the cookies (like Chocolate Chip, Chocolate crackle, and Oatmeal almond raisin) keep me coming back again and again.
This Portland bakery institution has launched a new bean-to-bon-bon chocolate line in addition to their stellar loaves and super cookies (like Valhrona white chocolate or old-school chocolate chunk).
This awesome pie-and-coffe spot is also baking up cookies work raving about. The classic Chocolate Button is made with Berlin Kakao organic dark chocolate buttons & slivered toasted almonds, and the Oatmeal with Cranberries and Walnuts is just as good.
This spot may be known for its rustic wood-fired loaves and intricate French pastries, but there's magic in the cookie jar, as well. Try the HUGE Valrhona chocolate chunk and hazelnut butter cookies.
Though this space is known for its candy creations (like chocolate icons coated in edible gold and local nut brittle), the chocolate chip cookies are insanely delicious, made with 74-percent Dominican chocolate.
The flourless, butterless, not-too-sweet Chocolate Chewy Cookie at Nuvrei Bakery is packed with dark chocolate, sea salt, and walnuts. Reminiscent of a French macaroon, this cookie is what dreams are made of.
These tiny cookies got their start at the Portland Farmers Market, and you can still find the two-bite treats amongst the carrots and tomatoes (as well as at their NW Portland shop). Try the chocolate chip fluer de sel!
Follow up a sandwich at this colorful SE Stark eatery with a freshly baked Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie, with pecans and large flakes of Maldon sea salt inside and out.
Killer ice cream sandwiches that combine fresh cookies and handmade ice cream in flavor combos like Caramel with Salted Dark Chocolate, Honey Lavender, and Fresh Mint with Chocolate Flake.
Adorable doesn't begin to describe this sweet-as-pie coffee shop and newsstand. Grab a magazine and some truly delicious housemade ice cream for a dream afternoon.
