Specialty’s WarmCookie Radar

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Being an adult means that I no longer come home from school, tired and books in tow, to a warm plate of cookies baked by my loving mother cooling on the stove top. There is no one to pour me a glass of milk, pet my head, and tell me that I’m gonna do really well on my AP Bio test tomorrow if I just believe in myself while I eat my cookie and think, “Yeah! I am a winner.”

Actually, this wasn’t what my childhood experience was like at all, but just because it’s not real doesn’t mean I can’t miss it. When I need a warm tummy feeling that only a homemade cookie can provide, I turn on Specialty’s Warm CookieRadar.

In case you don’t know, Specialty’s is a cafe and bakery that sells pretty sub par food, but their baked goods are to die for. They are most lauded for their cookies and have created an app that shows you what kinds of cookies have just come out of the oven at each of their store locations. It’s really accurate and a really good way to dodge disappointment; there’s nothing worse than to hitch it to a bakery, only to find that they don’t have what you want. Really, nothing worse.

The employees won’t pour you a glass of milk and they won’t pet your head, but you’re a grown up now and never liked AP Bio anyway.
