The 11 Best Places To Get Mouthwatering Chocolate Chip Cookies In New Jersey
Top chefs recently ranked the best chocolate chip cookies in the United States and SIX of the top 10 were just across the river in New York City. Favorites included the Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie at Breads Bakery, Chocolate Chunk Cookie at Dominique Ansel, Double Chocolate Chunk Cookie at Trademark Taste + Grind, and Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie at Levain Bakery. While all are delicious, delectable delights, I think the Garden State does cookies better. I know I’m biased, but New Jersey bakeries are among the best in the world – we take pride in our pastries. So, top chefs, listen up… I submit these cookies for your consideration. They are listed in no particular order, as taste is subjective, but I’m sure all will impress.
1. The Corner - 115 Grove Street, Montclair
The Corner is a cozy cafe with sweet and savory pastries, fresh pressed juices, terrific toast, and famous cookies! How famous? Cosmopolitan Magazine called them the best in New Jersey, and they sure do sell out quickly. Fresh batches are made daily (except Mondays) at 2:30.
2. Crust & Crumb Bakery - 9th Street @ North Bay Avenue, Beach Haven
This shore spot is perhaps best known for their elephant ears, a flaky French pastry with brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. However, their chocolate chip cookies are a top contender - soft in the middle with loads of chocolate, they're a local favorite.
3. Bang Cookies - 1183 Summit Avenue, Jersey City
Bang Cookies are certainly among the best in the country; they're organic, natural, soft baked, hand rolled, and massive. Ooey, gooey, and oh so good, the sea salt chocolate chunk is a standout. They also offer unique creations including the espresso chocolate chunk and bourbon kitchen sink. Not in Jersey City? No worries! They deliver nationwide.
4. Halo Pub - 9 Hulfish Street, Princeton
Halo Pub serves up spectacular ice cream made from its own dairy. Always fresh and flavorful, the ice cream pairs perfectly with their mouthwatering chocolate chip cookies. Business Insider named Halo Pub's cookies among the best in the U.S. - ice cream sandwich anyone?
5. Carlo's Bakery - 95 Washington Street, Hoboken
Buddy Valastro may be the "Cake Boss" but he also serves up some scrumptious chocolate chip cookies. If soft baked is your style, this is the place to be.
6. Becca's Cookie Bar, 604 2nd Avenue, Long Branch
Serving up homestyle cookies, Becca's Cookie Bar has 5-star reviews on Google, Yelp, DoorDash, and almost every other platform in existence. Every cookie here is delicious but the double chocolate is a dream come true. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, it's an edible bit of heaven.
7. Crazy Susan's Cookie Company - 1345 West Avenue, Ocean City
Crazy Susan comes up with some creative concoctions - try their chocolate dipped chocolate chips or their Oreo-topped creations. They also offer fun new flavors each month.
8. Cookie Rush - 176 Easton Avenue, New Brunswick
The cookies here aren't made until you order them, so they're always warm and fresh. They'll deliver cookies and milk right to your door until 4 a.m. on weekends. Yum!
9. Sweet T's Bakeshop - 14 King's Court, Haddonfield
This award-winning bakery specializes in cakes and cupcakes, all a work of art. However, their chocolate chip cookies are perfectly flaky and can not be missed. The devil's food cookies are equally delightful!
10. Cafe Pierrot - 19 Sparta Avenue, Sparta
A popular spot for catering and wedding cakes, Cafe Pierrot also serves up yummy, fresh baked cookies daily. Their main location in Sparta offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while a secondary location in Andover focuses more on dessert and light lunches.
11. The Cookie Connect - 405 West Passaic Ave, Bloomfield
Featured on the Food Network, this delivery-friendly spot offers cookies stuffed with all sorts of sweets! Enjoy chocolate chip cookies filled with Nutella, peanut butter, and plenty more. The apple pie cookies are an autumn delight and cookies n' cream is a year-round treat.
