Bite into the Best Cookies in Houston

Would you like to enjoy an afternoon pick-me-up? If so, head to one of these bakeries near our apartments at Monarch Medical Center, where you’ll find some of the best cookies in Houston.

Milk & Cookies 

After Baron Doke spent three months creating the perfect chocolate chip recipe, Milk & Cookies was born. Nestled in the heart of West University, this walk-in bakery is constantly creating something new. It also boasts a 4.5-star rating on Yelp. Here, the lines are always long as guests enjoy the friendly service and fresh, ooey-gooey offerings. Try the melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies with a cup of steaming hot chocolate. 

Michael’s Cookie Jar 

Michael’s Cookie Jar maintains that what’s inside matters more than the exterior. That’s why the bakers use only real butter and sugar for baking. These hard-working bakers also start their day early, and their cookies are always baked to perfection.

The owner Michael grew up cooking alongside his Italian grandmother. He later graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and set out to offer the finest all-butter cookies to all residents in Houston. Every batch is made using time-honored techniques, and popular offerings include snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin, and toffee pecan. 

Rookies Cookies 

Jay Prince began baking at the age of seven. What started as a way to make Jay’s father smile eventually became Rookies Cookies. With his mother’s help, Jay quickly realized that the right ingredients drastically affected the flavor of baked goods. Today, Jay bakes every batch from scratch, and the bakers keep the menu fresh and exciting. Choices include M&M, white chocolate chip macadamia, and chocolate chip pecan. 

All in all, these bakeries offer the best cookies in Houston.

Best of all, they comprise only a few of the bakeries near Monarch Medical Center. If you’re searching for a place to call home, contact us today. We’d love to show you around our vibrant apartment community.
