Insomnia Cookies

482 3rd Ave Broadway
New York, NY (Midtown East, Murray Hill, Kips Bay)



Sorry for my outburst, that was from the sugar rush.

If you’re in the vicinity of Murray Hill, this Insomnia Cookies location has become your new late night best friend and your waist’s worst enemy.

Actually if you live in Manhattan at all, your waistline is royally screwed. With six strategically placed cookie shops set up all over the City, your will power will certainly be tested with the trials of late night craving. Thank god for now I live in Brooklyn, away from their siren call!

Are they the best cookies you’ll ever have in your life? No… Levain takes the cake. Er, cookie.

Are they better than just the average run of the mill cookie? YES.

Why is that?

Well, straight up they’re made fresh AND they are guaranteed to be warm and gooey once they arrive at your door at 2 am in the morning after an evening of drunken debauchery (or let’s be honest, after an evening of pining after Ryan Gosling in The Notebook… cookies can stand in for feelings of unrequited love, you know).

The Sugar Rush (12 cookies for $16) ain’t bad if you’re looking for a quick fix. Plus, they offer multiple flavors and big package deals if you’re throwing a party… Dorm party or pity party, nobody’s here to judge.

This was a genius idea and I know most of you (including me) wish they had thought of it first. It’s almost as good as that Girl Scout who set up camp outside the marijuana dispensary in San Francisco and made a killing… almost. Seriously, how many times have you craved a late-night, hot cookie? Now if only they could hire hot men to deliver these cookies we’d REALLY be in business!!!

I mean, uh… hot cookies are just fine.. by themselves… no other use for melted chocolate crossed my mind whatsoever…

Viva la late night cookie.


Happy Birthday Sam!

Still uploading 5 years of reviews right now… What a pain.

Oh and my cat Sam turned 20 years old today. Yup you read that correctly and no I’m not April Fools-ing you. We have had him in my family since I was 6 years old. He was born on April 1st, 1994 and is 97 years old in cat years. How insane is that? He could be my little brother easily.

Here’s a picture of the handsome devil before he lost more weight:


Happy birthday Sam!
