  • What: This small bakery sandwiches Il Laboratoria del Gelato’s flavorful gelato between cookies baked fresh on premises. Use their menu or create your own. You can always opt for the freshest cookie but my favorite, warm or cool, is the classic chocolate chip with the simple vanilla gelato.
  • Cost: $4.88+ tax per ice cream cookie sandwich (Hey, it’s New York)
  • Where: 19 Commerce Street near 7th Avenue South NY, NY 10014 (212) 243-1640
  • Website: http://www.milkandcookiesbakery.com/
  • Inside info: Steer clear of the Grasshopper, featuring a Chocolate Mint Cookie with Fresh Mint Gelato, it tasted like tooth paste. On a more positive note, the director of the French Culinary Institute owns Milk & Cookies so you can feel confident in any of the decadent baked goods that line the counter.

    These cookies are really good. I am with you on the choc chip cookie with chocolate chip expresso ice cream sandwich. Maybe the bigggest plus is that this place reminds me of what the villiage used to be like – really cute, small place with tables tucked away on a street that you could miss if you walked too fast – great to visit with friends after a nearby dinner…

    Well said. You’re absolutely right. Commerce Street in general is a great block for that less-gentrified Village feel.
