Ben's Cookies sell a wide range of biscuits/cookies baked fresh on the premises everyday. They also sell coffee and soft drinks.I have to admit the cookies here are exceptionally great!!, very good indeeeeed. They are like the motto for pringles and once you pop you can't stop, they are that good!They have a sticky sweet cakey/gooey like texture, almost straight out of the oven, rather than the traditional crunchy cookies you get from most other places. My favourite flavors have to be the ginger ginger, which contains bits of crispy ginger as well as ginger spice, and white chocolate chip; and of course the old favourite double chocolate chip... hell yea!!!!! . However this comes with a big price tag, the cookies are very expensive and because of this i wouldn't highly recommend them to everyone although there products are very good for an odd occasion or take a daytime date there lol. I’ve also just checked their website and all the cookies are over 400 calories each, so be warned they are not the healthiest option on the high street but they certainly make you feel like your in heaven for a whole 30 seconds while you eat it.... Also The more cookies you buy the cheaper they become and they come in a nice little carry box or tin depending on how many you purchase.The cookies are all baked fresh on the premises with the ingredients brought in from a Ben’s factory, so a hot tip is to go in the early/mid morning and see if they have any bags of cheap cookies from the previous day as they are cooked fresh everyday.Ben’s Cookies in Bath is hidden down one of many little side streets which makes it very quirky, old fashioned, stylish and fun, these back streets have great character with tight cobbled paths with lovely old fashioned independent shops, very traditional and a taste of vintage England, and also not terribly busy like the main high street. From the entrance there does not look like there is much to see until you enter and discover a small maze with many small shops, bars and coffee shops.As for the shop itself it is unfortunately more of a take away cafe as there is only 2 tables inside and 4 tables outside so during winter especially this is a problem to sit, but then in summer there are more visitors lol, so it can be hard to sit down here, maybe visit the shop next door and wait for someone to leave, or just grab a cookie to try while walking through the town.As for the staff they definitely did a course on how these cookies are made, very knowledgeable about them and the history of the company, very friendly and professional. I would give 5* for the great location and products but because of the lack in seating this place is not 100% perfect so I must give a 4*.
