Oak & Franklin will now be referred to as Cookie Road. Or maybe it’s just the new bakery / cookie shop that should be opening very soon on that corner.

I’m kind of excited to have something like this opening up in my neck of the woods. We have several Polish bakeries (which are awesome, too) but not an everyday kind of bakery. Especially not a cookie shop!

And ohhhh the thought of freshly baked cookies in whimsical shapes is almost too much for me to bear.

Update: I got an email from Aneta & Jerzy – the owners of Cookie Road and though they’re not sure exactly when they’ll be open, I’m looking forward to being able to get an espresso and a cookie soon!

Hi Justine, we are excited too! We do not know when exactly we will open. We’re still waiting for inspections and they can take a long time. In the meantime, we are working on our cookies and checking out different espresso machines. *We love your blog*. See you soon (hopefully) in our bakery!

  1. When I saw their psychedelic art/mural thing on the building I thought it was love at first sight, but after getting home I went to the website (linked to in the article)I am a little scared.

    Does anyone know if you will be able to walk in and buy a cookie, or if you have to purchase them in sets (like they are priced on the website)?.

    I was really excited about these cookies, and would like to be their first customer (I was saying that all day that I wanted to be their first customer…some people might not like it, but I think the building looks great!).

    Anyone with more info please comment…I want more info!
    Cheers,
    Thanks,

  2. I am pretty disappointed too. This is not what I had in mind. This is not a general public thing (and not really for this kind of neighborhood…more like park slope or something). I just want to walk in and have a choice of some really yummy cookies without sugary icing art on them….not my idea of an ‘everyday’ place.

  3. Well, the place isn’t open yet so I’d like to think that although they have those fancy art cookies that they’d have other things, too. If they’re shopping around for an espresso machine I think they’re looking to maybe offer more than just their specialty cookies.

    I guess we’ll just have to wait and see?

  4. I agree with Justine the Espresso machine is a good sign! I think it is great that they shot you an email(that set my mind at ease a little…I also might have been getting too worked up over what a cookie shop could be)..that gives me more hope for a place I can walk in and grab a cookie (maybe it will become another one of my regular Saturday stops on Franklin Ave…I hope so).

    My girlfriend walked by the other day and said the mural on the outside had gotten crazier…I can ‘t wait to see it.

  5. I think it’s great that they’re from Poland! They’ll feel very at home in Greenpoint.

    I must admit though, I think the colors on the corner of the building are atrocious. I am hoping it’s not the end product.

    My guess: They will take orders but have single cookies for sale. I, for one, can’t wait to smell (and taste!) them!
