Bondi Bikkies | Bondi
This Bondi store is spreading the cookie love far and wide, with handcrafted, homemade creations delighting patrons. At Bondi Bikkies, the muesli cookie is king and packed with fruit, seeds and cinnamon (and low in sugar!). Gluten-free treats are available here too—hoorah!
Cookies+Milk | Newtown
Step into this Newtown store and be transported to cookie heaven. Cookies of every kind are served up here—think jammy dodgers, gingerbread men, whoopie pies, macarons, lime and ginger yo-yos, and of course, classic chocolate.

West Juliett | Marrickville
This Marrickville cafe churns out tasty breakfast and lunchtime fare, but be sure to stop by for their mouth-watering cookies. The choc-chip creation is not your average biscuit; they are enormous, filled with melted chocolate chunks, and sprinkled with pink salt to balance out the sweetness. West Juliett regularly sell out of these tantalising treats, so head down early to avoid missing out.
Black Star Pastry | Newtown
Celebrated amongst the Sydney baking scene, Black Star Pastry are well known for their outstanding pastries and biscuits.

Flour and Stone | Woolloomooloo
Sweet bites are the name of the game at Flour and Stone in Woolloomooloo, and their cookies are top notch. They not only bake tasty varieties like Anzacs, peanut butter, and sour cherry, but also offer up vegan and gluten-free options too. Don't miss the wholesome rice malt bikkie—if you prefer your sweets guilt-free.
bills | Darlinghurst
Classic flavours abound at bills, with cookie options such as Anzac, chocolate chip and ginger nut served up as the perfect accompaniment to your afternoon coffee. If you're feeling like something a tad more indulgent, the passionfruit shortbread is the clear winner. Check out the Bills website for the Surry Hills location.
