The Best Cookies in Toronto

The best cookies in Toronto are way beyond what you used to make as a toddler. Chewy, crispy, chocolatey and sweet, little is more delightful than one of these round baked goods served warm. 

Here are the best cookies in Toronto.


Craig's Cookies

Craig's Cookies

Get ready for the most indulgent cookie of your life. Craig Pike’s ultra-sweet cookies mash his mom’s cookie recipe together with childhood sweets like Oreos, Mars bars and Easter eggs. Find them in Parkdale, Leaside, Leslieville and at Church and Wellesley.

Fat, oozy cookies stuffed with huge melty chocolate chips are this cafe’s calling card. The other baked stuff is great but if you’re heading to Richmond and Spadina, this is likely what you’re making the pitstop for.

If you like your cookies just baked enough to pass the raw test, these oozy, fluffy cookies should meet your standards. This Little Italy bakery carries a dozen different colourful flavours including their famous ube cheesecake and toasted marshmallow cookies.

Bloourcourt’s longtime neighbourhood bakery has been making some of the best for over a decade. Most times you’ll see these cookies sandwiching a huge scoop of Bakerbots’ ice cream but these sturdy creations are definitely tasty enough to eat on their own.

Sitting pretty next to all the other ridiculously divine baked goods on display are Butter Baker’s chewy cookies. You can usually find flavours like almond chocolate, Birthday Cake and matcha white chocolate on the rack.


Courage Cookies

Courage Cookies

This cookie company with a charity bent took off during the pandemic and never looked back. What started as a home business is now a bakery in Brockton Village pumping out super soft cookies, including the ever-popular Angel Pillow and the Crispy Boy.

Barbershop Patisserie

In the presence of some truly divine pastries, you’d think the cookies at this Little Italy bakery would take a back seat. Not so with Jill Barber’s crispy, dark-chocolate wonders with a perfect sprinkle of salt on top.


Noctua Bread

Daniel Sáez’s cookie The Junction Mama, aptly named after the neighbourhood, contains not one but three types of chocolate. Prepare for a melt-in-your-mouth experience that uses ancient and whole grains instead of white flour.

Coco's

Aside from the cakes, which are to die for based off appearance alone, Nicole Bilyea also makes some massive chocolate chip cookies. And because nothing is basic at this Little Italy bakery, it's no surprise that every centimetre of this cookie is covered in chocolate chips.
