The Best Cookies in Fort Wayne, Indiana
A lunchtime favorite of mine are the cookies from Lindi's! For balance, I order the salad bar, and, of course, a chocolate chip cookie. These cookies are by far one of my favorite. They have the best mix of perfectly soft centers, crunchy edges, and a sweet vanilla-like flavor. I could eat them every day!

Cookies for dessert, yes, please! At Club Soda, make sure you save room the oatmeal raisin cookie sandwich. Although oatmeal raisin is not my go-to cookie, this dessert is amazing. Two cookies sandwiching vanilla cream, and all covered in delectable chocolate sauce.

Don Hall's Takes the Cakes is a Fort Wayne classic for cakes. They have some of the best German Chocolate Cakes, but they also make some great cookies that you can even personalize. During Be A Tourist in Your Own Hometown this past September, the Fort Wayne Visitors Center celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the event by providing free frosted sugar cookies from Hall's Takes the Cake, and they were the perfect addition!

Now, these cookie destinations are not on the honorable mentions because they're less than any prior cookies mentioned, but because I have not had a chance to properly try these cookies. They're still all worthy of National Cookie Day though!
