If you’re a cookie connoisseur, you know how difficult it can be to find them on restaurant menus. Fortunately, some of Calgary’s favorite casual and upscale restaurants serve up some of the tastiest cookies in the city. Whether you have a hankering for a moist ’n’ chewy peanut butter skillet cookie or a batch of fresh, mini-chocolate-chip cookies, here are the restaurants that’ll satisfy your cookie craving.

The Lazy Loaf & Kettle

8 Parkdale Cres NW, Calgary, AB T2N 3T8

A sandwich and pastry café, the Lazy Loaf & Kettle features a short breakfast and lunch menu of house-made sandwiches and pastries. One of the most decadent offerings, the ginger cookie sandwich features two massive, soft ’n’ pillowy ginger cookies filled with a heaping scoop of sweet cream-cheese frosting. It’s a messy feat to take on, but it’s one of the best desserts you’ll find in the city.

Analog Coffee

740 17 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2S 0B7

The Fratello brothers’ coffee empire is expanding – they’ve launched a third Analog location in Southcentre Mall. While most people go to Analog to grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee, the café also carries a tantalizing selection of fresh-made sandwiches and pastries including one of the best peanut butter cookies in the city. Neither crunchy nor chewy, this enigmatic treat is silky soft with a slight bit of crumble.

Sidewalk Citizen Bakery

618 Confluence Way SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0G1

Sidewalk Citizen baker and boss Aviv Fried now oversees two locations. One is located in Sunnyside and the second in the Simmons Building in East Village. The bakery’s cookie lineup changes with the seasons. For winter 2015-16, find a decadent twist on the classic white chocolate cookie. This white chocolate and mint cookie incorporates crushed candy cane. Also munch a hearty cranberry pumpkin spice cookie, a boozy chocolate Grand Marnier cookie and an ever-indulgent triple-chocolate, sour-cherry cookie.

Rise Bow Valley

181-250 6 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 3H7

A popular lunch destination in the downtown core, Butcher and the Baker specializes in sandwiches and quick eats for professionals on the go. The eatery also carries a sumptuous selection of cookies that includes a hearty chocolate chip variety as well as an indulgently sweet and rich white chocolate chip variety. Nomming down on one of these massive cookies is a perfect way to end your lunch on a sweet note.

CHARCUT Roast House

5
101-303 Centre St SW, Calgary, AB T2G 2B9

This upscale downtown restaurant is known for its innovative, meat-centric menu. Its two in-a-hurry lunch meals include a bag of house-made chocolate chip cookies. The small-sized cookies are served warm in a brown paper bag. Eat them with your meal, or take the cookies to enjoy later.

Notable The Restaurant

6
133-4611 Bowness Rd NW, Calgary, AB T3B 0B2

Justin Leboe’s upscale restaurant features a coffee crème brûlée dessert served with rich chocolate fudge cookies. If you prefer to pair your pastries with a tall mug of coffee, you’ll love how the coffee-flavoured crème brûlée complements the rich chocolate fudge in the cookies. While the dish’s main component is the crème brûlée, the accompanying fudge cookies are arguably the best part of the whole thing.

The Bank & Baron

7
125 8 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2P 1B4

While the Bank & Baron does not have a lengthy dessert menu, it does feature a chocolate pot de crème dish served with a scrumptiously soft sugar cookie. The pot de crème features a rich, dark-chocolate pudding, so the fresh-baked, fluffy sugar cookie adds lightness to the dish.

Earls

8
1110 16 Ave NW, Calgary, AB T2M 0K8

This Canadian restaurant chain features a skillet peanut butter cookie on its dessert menu. The cookie is baked directly on a miniature, single-serving skillet and served piping hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkling of peanuts. It’s a decadent and chewy cookie that balances the saltiness of the peanuts with the sweetness of the vanilla ice cream. It’s perfect for sharing, but if you bring your appetite you may be able to order one all for yourself.

Village Ice Cream

9
820 49 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2S 1G9

His favourite summer treat, Village Ice Cream founder Billy Friley reinvented the ice cream sandwich for Village Ice Cream. The sandwich starts with a rectangular fudge cookie that’s comparable to a brownie. Using local ingredients, the cookies are baked by local bakery Pretty Sweet. The sandwich is filled with a generous portion of Village Ice Cream.

One of the most festive Calgary events of the summer, Marda Gras is a New Orleans-themed street festival that runs August 13, 2017, in the heart of the Marda Loop community. Since Marda Loop is one of the best dining communities in the city, make sure to stop in to one of these eateries while you’re in the area.
With Calgary’s warm weather (hopefully) here to stay, the city’s food truck scene is entering its busiest time of year. Since there are so many delicious mobile eateries to choose from, YYC Food Trucks has organized Picnic in the Park, a two-day food frenzy that takes place May 27 and 28 in Murdock Park in Bridgeland. Here are six food trucks you need to check out while you’re there. [Photo credit: YYC Food Trucks]
