Cookies need love, like everything does. And there are some local bakers who’ve made it their mission to spread the love across the Circle City. Here are just a few of the cookies that warm our hearts (and our bellies).

The Cavity Factory | 1354 Shelby St.
After operating out of an iconic pink food truck for several years, The Cavity Factory finally opened its flagship location in April of this year. It’s been selling out almost daily since, thanks to flavors like lemon cheesecake, cosmic brownie, and the crookie: A fusion between a chocolate chip cookie and a croissant.

SALAMAT Cookies! | Pop-ups or store pick-up, varies by date
“Salamat” means “thank you” in Filipino — but it’s us who should be thanking this bakery. Its cookies utilize adventurous ingredients like pandan, ube, mango, and guyabano for unique and exciting tastes and textures.

Blondie’s Cookies | Multiple locations
With seven locations across central Indiana, Blondie’s bakes up a variety of delicious treats. Fans of frosted cookies love the Sprinkle line, which frequently debuts seasonal flavors. Right now, you can get your hands on a Strawberry Shortcake Sprinkle.

Bouge Cookie Company | Pop-ups
Cookies that taste as gorgeous as they look are hard to come by. That’s what makes Bouge, a husband + wife team with art and culinary backgrounds, so extraordinary. Don’t believe us? Check out what they made for the Indiana Peony Festival last month — the comments don’t lie.

INDYtoday: INDY_Please & Thank You cookies coffee_JUN24

PLEASE & THANK YOU’s policy is: Hot coffee, fresh cookies, loud music, no decaf.

PLEASE & THANK YOU | 849 Mass Ave.
P&TY’s location on Mass Ave is its first outside of the Louisville, KY area. Known for simple, no-frills cookies contrasted with an expansive drink menu, we’re not surprised that it’s been nominated again for Best Cookie Shop in the US by USA Today — right after winning the title in 2023.

Did we miss a cookie you love? Bake our day.
