SALTED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE | OKLAHOMA CITY
Elemental Coffee is one of my go-to places to work, catch up with a friend, or (of course) grab a chocolate chip cookie. I LOVE these cookies. They’re huge, they’re sweet and they’ve got the perfect amount of sea salt sprinkled on top. They somehow magically taste just like cookie dough without being doughy at all. Plus, they’re vegan, which is a whole other mystery to me. I never understand how vegan cookies can be that good without butter. But it’s possible! I may have to try to bake them for myself one of these days, but until then, I’ll get my fix at Elemental.
THE COOKIE TOUR STOP
Elemental is known for its signature in-house roasts. The staff is always friendly, there is ample seating, and lots and lots of sunlight. You’ll want to bring a book or something to work on and stay for a while. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it yet, but I’m not a coffee drinker. I believe the Elemental-loyal, though, when they say their coffee is among the best in town. I recently discovered their apple orchard green tea. I am obsessed! It’s got the perfect hint of apple and, when it’s iced, it’s incredibly refreshing on a warm day.
WHILE YOU’RE THERE
The shop is in Midtown, so there is lots to do just steps away. If you get hungry after your coffee and cookie, you should check out Tamashii Ramen House. It’s just across the street from Elemental, has incredible ramen and is an OKC foodie favorite. Save room for the garlic fried rice and gyoza.
