A True Classic
COOKIES, COOKIES AND MORE COOKIES
You guessed it, cookies are definitely the specialty at The Classic Cookie and Café in Waldo.
Chocolate chip is the cookie everyone comes here for, but the bakery’s plentiful selection also includes other soft and chewy options like chocolate chip nut, chocolate chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin chip, oatmeal raisin nut, oatmeal scotchies, chocolate peanut butter chi, snickerdoodles, ginger, and peanut butter. Take one or two or a dozen home for snacking, or you can order cookies in a specialty tin for gifts (they even offer delivery and shipping).
WORTH THE WAIT
You won’t go hungry while you wait for your lunch because at this quaint and cozy eatery, each table is served a basket full of mini-muffins and cookies on the house. Enough said.
FROM SCRATCH, WITH LOVE
Everything on the breakfast and lunch menus is made from scratch each day. In addition to regular menu favorites, chef and owner Leslie Stockard has been preparing daily specials for 15 years.
For breakfast, try the biscuits and gravy, the breakfast burrito, or the potato and sausage casserole, or stick with classics like waffles, French toast and omelets. For lunch, you can choose from a variety of salads, soups and sandwiches, or go back often to enjoy specials like chicken and noodle casserole or meatloaf. And you can’t beat the price point: everything is under $10.
DO TRY THIS AT HOME
The Classic Cookie and Café sells a cookbook, the idea for which came from patrons constantly asking Stockard to write a cookbook featuring some of her breakfast and lunch specials. While you can try to re-create the Classic Cookie experience at home, don’t get too excited — the book doesn’t include recipes for the regular menu items or the consistently popular cookies and muffins.
