I too spoke to a fresh manager. I am not sure they even know how their phone system works. Skip the frustration and go to one of the better options in the city!

Do not use their gift service

The person taking my order, turns out to be the manager, sounded aggrieved to have to spend his time on the phone with me. I called two days later, the day that my client should have received the order, and nobody could find it. I was told someone would call me back and nobody did. I called back at night and was finally given a tracking number. For some reason, our order was sent by second day air, despite the fact that our client's location is a one-day ship from the store and that I was sending the client fresh cookies! I called the manager and he does not care. He kept telling me that they automatically ship overnight, although the tracking info states 2nd day air and our client did not receive them the day after they shipped. I will not use them again, although I was hoping to have a new vendor for year-end gifts.

Good cookies, bad service

The cookies are delicious. It's the service that needs help. A couple of times I have walked in but was ignored for several minutes. One time I was told it was very busy and they'd be with me in a minute but there was no one else in the store.

average product and service

I live a couple blocks from Milk and Cookies, and I must say, they do a very good chocolate chip cookie when they haven't been sitting out all day. Service can be a bit slack.. they once actually ran out of milk, so not only were they unable to serve a simple glass of milk with cookies, they couldn't make any of the milk/coffee drinks they have on offer. Granted, there was only one girl working the counter, but if that was me, I would have closed the store for the 3 minutes it would take me to run to the corner bodega to grab a couple gallons. Another time, I ordered 2 ice cream sandwiches to go, and the girl gave them to me on plates. When I asked if I could get them in bags, she just gave me the bags and I had to pack them at the counter myself while she watched me get melted ice cream all over my fingers. Maybe these cookies are affecting brain cell count. Overall, if you're in the neighborhood, try to stop in. If you're not, don't bother making a pilgrimage.

Decent little place.. Glad I gave it a second chance.

I went to M&C on St Patty's day for the first time. The dark chocolate toffee cookie I ordered was hard and I can count how many chocolate chips is in that cookie (5 chips?). I was disappointed. Maybe because it was 11pm at night, the cookies had been sitting there for the whole day... But the rice crispy is still fresh and home-made that I decided to give it another chance. Went again in 2 days, I made the right choice this time: chocolate chip cookies and double chocolate. They are way better. They are soft and filled with lots of chocolate chips!!! Took some friends there yesterday. Tried 6 different cookies. Not all of them are amazing... some (cinnamon, chocolate mint, chocolate toffee, white chocolate macadamian) are not good. But chocolate chips cookies and double chocolate are great. We had their organic milk too - YUM!!! I recommend their chocolate chips cookies, double chocolate cookies, and rice crispy.
I also agree with the comment below that the decor is not that sweet and cozy.. something is missing. And now that I'm reading other reviews... I wish I knew this place BEFORE the change in ownership - agree that cookies are not always fresh and chewy and warm, agree that cookies are NOT bursted with chocolate chips. Need to continue my cookie-hunt!!

no longer great - not even good anymore

new owners have destroyed this gem. the previous interior was adorable. it looks like a cheesy and cheap deli now. while the recipes were passed along from the previous owners, i think they neglected to give all the details as the cookies just arent the same. furhtermore and really most important is that the sweet ambiance is gone.



omg fabulous

You open the door and you encounter the most wonderful aroma. You taste the samples and you want more. This is the best place for cookies and more.

That's the way the cookie crumbles!!!!!

Having gone back to Milk and Cookies Bakery, I just love their new decor, its so clean and open. Who knew the place was THIS big? :-) Old, dusty curtains- be gone!
The cookies are better than ever and the overall quality of products is so improved. (Love the new baskets!)There are no longer employees standing outside smoking or on the phone (when they should be inside taking care of customers, that always bothered me.) The whole new staff is professional and knows how to wait on all customers.
So, go back and give it a try- but only if hot fresh cookies and Ronnybrook farm milk are your thing. YUM!

C is for Cookie, but A+ is for Milk and Cookies

Hey this place is great.

I had 3 cookies. (should have stopped at 2 but couldn't help myself). I highly recommend the chocolate chip, but apparently you can custom order cookies too.

I loved that my friends and I could hang out and chat in the cafe space. The decor was simple, but inviting. It had a bunch of blue tiled tables. and I think there was a counter with stools too. There were alot of people coming into the bakery, but I didn't feel crowded - one ot the things about NYC that can really get you down. Everything was super clean the spacious.

Service was great, the counter person was really knowledgeable about all the cookies! Even though there was a line, we didn't have to wait long, either.

I just finished reading some of the reviews for the adorably delicious Milk & Cookies. I have to say - I'm totally confused! Milk & Cookies has completely perked up the block. The owner clearly has a love of cookies and of serving them to people. I absolutely love going there and get a real kick out of the down home feeling. I mean where else can you get a cookie - a terrific one at that and a smile - in the middle of the city. The spot is adorable - and I personally LOVE the paint job. My only wish is that I lived on the block so I could eat there EVERY day.
Keep up the good work Milk & Cookies - don't let these negative nellies get you down!!

Milk and Cookies Bakery

I am disgusted with the ""transformation"" of this quaint little bakery in our neighborhood. The new owner is rude to her employees--INFRONT of customers and while standing there, didn't even acknowledge us--the customers. The poor girls behind the counter are obviously working very hard and the owner looks like a ravaging beast bossing them around. The ""renovations"" are stagnant and unwelcoming. The recipes seem so much different and are no longer the delicious, soft cookies we all once loved. I am so disappointed in this little place. No longer is it the welcoming little neighborhood bakery we once had. I agree with the previous review in that I, too, once knew this little place before the new owner came and tore it all apart.

New Owner = Temper Tantrums and Awful Product

I WAS a regular customer at this quaint little cookie shop...I thoroughly enjoyed the cookies, the staff, and the owners, Marc and Jen. Since selling the bakery to a godzilla-like woman last month, things have all gone to hell there. I walked in one evening a week or so ago, and watched the new owner screaming at her employees (in front of customers), I watched her throwing things around the bakery, huffing, puffing, and in general, behaving like a 2 year old child. When the poor girl behind the counter finally could help me, I bit into a HARD and VERY DRY cookie...nothing like what Jen and the old crew used to produce. And, what happened to all the smiling M&C employees? Walking into this bakery now feels like walking into the middle of a funeral. Sad employees, and a screaming boss...
I won't be going in there any time soon..and I'd encourage you all not to waste your money on cookies that taste like cardboard.

New Owner - The Worst Cookies Ever - Big Loss to Cookie Lovers and to the West Village

Don?t be fooled by previous rave reviews! Unquestionably the worst cookies ever! I learned the hard way! With the departure of its original owners last month - Jennifer and Marc Limotte - went a charming West Village favorite! Gone are its signature cookies -- warm and chewy and bursting with ?ingredients.? In its place are hard, dry cookies. Even the ambience has suffered! In place of warm 'tomato'-colored walls and decor reminiscent of colonial New York, you will find blue walls (that clash with the bakery logo) and a web site under construction. It would be GREAT if the new owner could produce these famous signature cookies in time for my Holiday Gift Baskets! I am placing my bets somewhere else this holiday season!!!

Best cookies ever

The service was very friendly and helpful. We got our custom order of cookies very promptly and they were delicious. They don't skimp on the ingredients so each cookie was bursting with chocolate chips and the cookies stayed chewy for a few days. If you get a custom batch, definitely ask for one fresh out of the oven - it's pure heaven - and the staff will happily accomodate.

Definitely Use For Deliveries

I placed an order from across the country for delivery on the Upper East Side. Customer service was excellent, especially since I changed delivery times on day of delivery. Cookies arrived fresh at the requested time change. Will absolutely use Milk and Cookies Bakery again and recommend anyone to try.

Moist and delciious Chocolate chip...

The chocolate chip is quite nice and makes you close your eyes with delight. Buy some for the loves in our life and after dinners out stop by and sneak a few for yourself.

Bad customer service and terrible quality

This place was just what I needed in the neighborhood when it first opened. Cozy, cute and a great spot to meet up with friends! However, I refuse to go here anymore! My last few experiences have been awful! Everytime I go in the counter girls are either talking to one another or talking on the phone. I've had to stand there for several minutes before someone has even looked in my direction! Not to mention, that the last few times I have been, I received a raw cookie! They work in a BAKERY! Do they not know, when something is fully cooked? It doesn't take a genious to realize this. Last but not least, and I seriously mean LAST,(and I have friends who will back me up on this) I was standing behind a man who was ordering his morning coffee and out from behind the counter ran 2 little furry creatures! Not a exactly a fresh start to a bright, sunny day...Between the raw cookies and the sight of that , I say GROSS!

& rude service & stale & . . .

I brought my parents here to enjoy a ""home-made"" treat. Instead we encountered rude service and lousy food. The chocolate chip cookie was stale and lacked any hint of flavor. The walnut brownie had one walnut in it and was also stale. The ice cream must have been freezer burned and ended up making us all sick that night. It was all slopped into a deli-style to-go containers even though we were eating it there. Disgusting!!

VERY unwelcoming

Every time I have walked into this place (and friends have confirmed the experience) I feel like the girl behind the counter (no matter which one it is) wonders why the hell someone would dare bother her. Umm, do you actually WANT business? The cookies and brownies are pretty good, and this is a block from where I live, but I won't go there anymore. Who needs that attitude??? They're COOKIES. Seriously.
