I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Porchini Chocolate Chip cookies at Triniti are stupendous.

I should have had that as a third option.

Okay, after a good look, @WesSabi, I get it. They don’t seem like the types to stand in line for an expensive gourmet cookie. And why would a cookie shop need a security guard?

I like all cookies lol. I haven’t had a cookie in approximately two months which makes me really sad.

they make pot cookies now. really, really strong pot cookies. girl scout cookies are also a double entendre.

ya, it’s a weed spot

I’m not generally a fan of the baked goods at Bristol Farms, but something made me buy a pack of the crispy thin brownie chips and I am not regretting it in the least. These are very crispy - there is no give whatsoever - but they have a good chocolate taste. I don’t think one can do much better in Westwood.

Unless you count in the (admittedly sentimental) perennial local cookie monster: Diddy Riese.

they have their fans but its terrible to me. not worth the incredibly cheap price the one time i tried it.

Totally understandable. A lot of the love Diddy Riese gets is from current/former UCLA students/staff who harbor more local institution support / sentimentalist reasons.

I think the oatmeal raisin cookies at De Neve is the best in Westwood.

Nothing but the best for those with tenure. ;-D

Just tried the cookie there for the first time this past weekend (chocolate chip). Not bad at all. Not nearly as decadent as The Cookie at Bristol Farms, but I’m okay w/ that b/c I sometimes feel totally gross (and not in a good way) after eating a full The Cookie (and I can’t just stop at half). The choc chip at Vanilla has wonderful oozy chocolate, and I don’t feel like I need to have my arteries cleansed afterward…

I read about Zooie’s Cookies (in a gas station in Palms) in the LA Times recently:

So, I checked 'em out. They were VERY good. I got the walnut “gooie” cookie (a walnut chocolate chip cookie) which was EXCELLENT. Also got an espresso chocolate chip and a oreo cookie based cookie which were also quite tasty.

They all were very good. I was very impressed…
