Biscuit On Cookies

A clarification from Biscuit Wakefield

A few of you have written in with an apt observation: tastes, like mileage, may vary. One person’s ideal chocolate-chip cookie is another person’s tastebud nightmare. Obviously, there is some objectivity in cookie reviewing. Is the product overpriced? Is it burnt? Did it result in food poisoning? Past these simple […]

Portland Cookie Review: Big Sky Bakery

review by Biscuit Wakefield – please read “Biscuit On Cookies“

Big Sky Bakery Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Walnut Cookie (I purchased mine from the Public Market, but it’s available at the Woodfords location as well) (My apologies, I forgot the price. Again! It was reasonable, though, I remember that. Good cookies are so distracting.) Now that […]

Portland Cookie Review: Hilltop Coffee Shop

review by Biscuit Wakefield

Hilltop Coffee Shop Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip $0.50 (baked the day before) + tax

Portland Cookie Review: North Star Cafe

review by Biscuit Wakefield

North Star Music Cafe Chocolate-Chip Walnut (not vegan) $1.75 + tax
