CLASSIC CHOCOLATE CHIP | SAN FRANCISCO
Anthony's is a cookie-lover's Heaven. During my trip to San Francisco, everyone asked if I'd been to Anthony's. It was my last stop, and in my opinion, it was the best. When you walk in, there's pretty much only a counter where you order. And behind the counter, there are cookies. ONLY cookies. Pan after pan, stacked on baking racks, there are cookies of all types ready to be eaten. To order, you look at a chalkboard menu, where the available cookies are charmingly marked with a check. I, of course, went for the Classic Chocolate Chip. It did not disappoint!
I ordered the one ounce size, which fit in my palm and allowed me to have room to try other types of cookies. The classic was just the right amount of crispy on the outside and had a light, gooey center. The chip-to-dough ratio was 50/50. In my opinion, this cookie lived up to its name. It was classic, simple and delicious. Next time I'm in San Fran, I'm ordering four.
WHILE YOU'RE THERE
Try everything! My second type was Cookies & Cream. It had the same perfect texture as the Classic Chocolate Chip, but it tasted just like cookies & cream ice cream. It would be amazing dipped in a cold glass of milk. I'm convinced that you can't go wrong at Anthony's!
THE COOKIE TOUR STOP
You can find Anthony’s Cookies in the Mission District. It’s a little off the beaten path from the typical tourist stops, but well worth the trip.
