If the Cookie Monster ever felt like moving from Sesame Street, he’d probably end up at Anthony’s Cookies. And with treats to make any passer-by into a bona fide cookie monster, Anthony’s Cookies proves it’s worth the visit.
For the past 13 years, Anthony Lucas has been going back to basics with his tried and true cookie recipe. After ditching the accounting textbooks for more sugary prospects, Anthony began selling these delectable goodies from his car on San Francisco State’s campus. But when he saw that the milk-and-cookies demand far exceeded his vagabond capacities, he moved into his current Valencia Street location.
Now, this full-time cookie expert serves sweet treats seven days a week. And like his recipes, the minimalist storefront and presentation prove that going back to basics is the progressive idea we’ve been craving.
