Orlando Cookie Showdown

This post was written by

Another day, another cookie!

Who doesn’t love a good cookie? With so many options in our city, we wanted to find the best cookie to satisfy even the pickiest of sweet teeth!  After an eventful trip around our city on a super sunny day, we chose 12 different cookies, from 7 different bakeries, to be part of the Cookie Showdown 2018! Bakeries were chosen at random based on reviews from other online platforms. If your favorite place didn’t get picked, let us know and we will stop by!


Bakeries included (visit each bakery’s listing for address and hours):

Cookie Cousins – College Park

Sugarbuzz Dezerts – College Park

Gideon Bakery (East End Market) – Audubon Park

Blue Bird Bake Shop – Audubon Park

Olde Hearth Bread Company (East End Market) – Audubon Park

Buttermilk Bakery – Winter Park

Charlie’s Gourmet Pastries – Orlando


7 judges each had 3 votes (21 total votes) for their top three choices and here is how it played out:

First Place:
with 6 votes

Sugarbuzz Dezerts – Chocolate Chunk Cookie

Second Place:
with 4 votes each

Buttermilk Bakery – Salted Double Chocolate Chip

Sugarbuzz Dezerts – Lemon Sugar Cookie

Third Place:

Honorable Mention:
with 1 vote each

Olde Hearth Bread Company – Snickerdoodle

Of course, this is all in fun and nothing all that scientific! But we had a great day visiting with shop employees, learning about the different neighborhoods from their viewpoints and celebrating all that the City Beautiful has to offer!  Go on your own cookie hunt and report back what great treats you uncover!


Side Note: The Most Appreciated Cookie Of The Day award has to go to Sugarbuzz Dezerts for their pumpkin puppy cookies!  Our sweet Lily loved them so much that she would not wait for us to take a picture! She had to eat them right away!
