My sole purpose of choosing my lunch spot today was because of the cookie. Sole purpose. As in, cookies dictate where I go. It's true, and I'm not ashamed. Not even a little bit.
Boulevard Bread Company makes the best vegan double chocolate chunk cookies in the entire world. THE BEST. And did I mention they are vegan...an added bonus.
Apparently, they put espresso in these beauties. And I pick up the faintest hint of cinnamon, which I love. They are oh so chocolatey. And soft. And delicious. And almost as big a plate. I swoon.
While I went to Boulevard Bread in hopes of getting the cookie, I also grabbed a pretty healthy lunch. The homemade soup of the day was a white bean soup with crusty bread and homemade pesto, and I got the hummus sandwich, which is also vegan.
When I paid for my goods, the girl behind the counter asked if I was vegan. And I said no. I didn't tell her that I chose to come there for the cookie AFTER I talked myself out of a big ole cheeseburger from Arkansas Burger Company.
I thought Arkansas Burger Company would be a bad choice since I'm running this afternoon and eating Italian for dinner with my mom. No need to further clog the arteries.
So cookies win. And I'm totally ok with it. And I say this while I'm feeling miserable at my desk after stuffing my face too full of ridiculously delicious food.
What food places do you go to have just that one special item?
What is your favorite cookie?
