First of all, I must make a confession: some people have a sweet tooth, and I think I take sugar cravings to a whole new level. Think “Cookie Monster” level and you get the picture.
So, you can imagine my happiness when I found out that the Alvalade neighborhood now hosts a tiny little store with American cookies for sale! The range of flavors is incredible: peanut butter, walnuts, lemon, ginger, and even a three chocolate combination (called “The Punisher”) are just some of the cookies you can find. The store also sells brownies, cupcakes and doggy treats, and you can drink a coffee in good Portuguese style while eating a cookie.
The owner Karl is probably one of the most friendly and welcoming people in Alvalade (and I dare say in all of Lisbon), and well…the cookies are nothing short of DELICIOUS!
So for a quick fix of a sugar craving or to feast on a cookie extravaganza, this amazing place (that also has a “twin” shop in the Campo de Ourique neighborhood) is more than recommended.
