Few smells are more alluring than freshly baked cookies, as Mrs Higgins well knows. Its open front Queen Street store bakes new batches throughout the day and on occasion you'll be lucky enough to pinch a still warm treat.
The variety of cookies is both overwhelming and inconsistent. White chocolate macadamia is perpetually morish, with fudgy white chocolate and islands of nutty crunch. Others such as mint with chocolate, an ammonia green abomination, are perplexing at best. Sometimes they're brittle, and sometimes they're almost sloppy and dough like.
Despite the odd bad cookie, their fantastic value can easily lead to eating one, two or several too many.
