Honestly, the cookies from Captain Cookie pretty much speak for themselves. The owners have all the classic flavors including chocolate chip, snicker doodle, oatmeal raisin and peanut butter. They even make a phenomenal vegan chocolate chip cookie. For something especially fun, ask for a a cookie ice cream sandwich! Ice cream flavors change with the season. You can go to their store, or look out for one of their three food trucks. You can find the trucks’ daily locations on their website. If you want to order some for a party, they also do delivery.
