The Cookie Jar

A view of The Cookie Jar from my table.

Cookie Jar tea and brownie

This photo is deceptive, because the brownie doesn’t look that big. I should have put a ruler up to the cup so you could see it’s a big cup, but that it was an even bigger chocolate brownie.

I know this is a blog about tea, but the most memorable thing about The Cookie Jar was the huge and very delicious slab of chocolate brownie. The rooibos tea was nice, but came in a cup rather than a pot and wasn’t loose leaf. I liked the cute little milk bottle and managed to retrieve the lid after I dropped it in my tea (my fault, not the fault of the milk bottle).

There aren’t that many tables in The Cookie Jar (three, I think?) and there’s no toilet. So it’s not a place to linger, but for a tasty sugar hit and a hot drink, it’s definitely the place to go.

  • Teapot? No.
  • Leaf tea? No, but they did have rooibos.
  • Milk jug? Yes, though again it was a little glass bottle for the milk. Came with a little lid and everything.
  • Price? £1.90 for a cup of rooibos tea. £1.75 for a huge piece of chocolate brownie.
  • Cake? Yes, all made on the premises. Cookies (naturally), ice cream, biscuits, meringues, and three different types of chocolate brownie: choctastic, vegan and marshmallow. I think there was cake too, but to be honest, once I’d spotted the brownies I’d stopped paying attention to any of the other things. They also sell savoury food at lunch.
  • Go again? Yes.

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
