The Best Cookie in Town

Okay, so it’s not delivered to your house at two in the morning. But east or west of the Schuylkill, the best oatmeal raisin cookie in Philadelphia is at Metropolitan Bakery.

About four to five inches in diameter, this chunky, nutty goodie is jam-packed with oats, raisins, and pecans. Almost more trail mix than dessert, Metro’s cookie is a satisfying breakfast treat or replenishing afternoon snack. They really are made of oatmeal, unlike many oatmeal raisin cookies that are more like cookie dough with a vague smattering of oats and raisins. The deliciousness is enriched by the expert use of spices. Each bite is as good as the last and you are almost guaranteed to get a raisin or a nut or both every time.

If you are looking for a hearty but sweet treat, Metropolitan is the place to be. If oatmeal raisin isn’t your style, their chocolate chip walnut is almost as good (and just as big). Get your cookie today for only $1.75 at 40th and Walnut on campus, or at 19th and Manning (just south of Rittenhouse Square) in Center City, or at Reading Terminal Market!
