Red Wagon Creamery
55 West Broadway – Eugene, OR
It has been a long time since I ate a cookie good enough to talk about.
But I finally did. Last week. In my hometown. Not at a bakery, even. But at an ice cream joint called Red Wagon Creamery. They make very good ice cream*, but whoever they’ve got in charge of the cookies is no dummy, either.
Laughing Planet Café

The only thing separating the ANZAC biscuit from the cowboy cookie sitting in a neighboring jar at Pacific Pie Company is the addition of chocolate chips.
Spielman Coffee Roasters
2128 SE Division St – Portland
Spielman Coffee Roaster’s main gig, unsurprisingly, is coffee beans. But in the past year or so since they opened, they’ve also earned a reputation for baking some of the best bagels in town (Montreal style) - with lines regularly spilling out of their tiny Division Street shop. And even though I’m not a bagel chaser in general, it’s nice to know it is possible to get our hands on something more chewy, earthy, delicious and
