In addition to a great latte, the Cedarburg Coffee Roastery sells a very friendly Monster.

A Monster I'd like to be friends with


I have long been on a search for the ideal cookie. Sacrificing to test many along the way, my sweet tooth and preoccupation with dessert has led me to try the baked circles of bakeries, diners and cafes across the city.

My criteria are debatable with likes and dislikes swaying with each individual cookie. In short, my main hope is that the cookie with be a soft dough packed with texture and oozing a junket ingredients.

Therefore, Alterra's Cowboy, City Market's Oatmeal Raisin and Beans and Barley's Cocomo Joe rank at the head of my class.

But just when I thought all great combinations had been discovered, I found a cookie today that may just top them all.

The Cedarburg Coffee Roastery in the Public Market offers just one cookie; and after just a few bites, I've come to see that it's really the only one they need. The "Monster Cookie" is a six inch wide cookie stuffed with oats, coconut, M&M's, chocolate chips and peanut butter. Taking top marks in texture, flavor and consistency, I recommend wholeheartedly to anyone with a flair for something sweet.

While I enjoyed the premise of mkegirl's talkback, I have to admit that I found it difficult to read because of the lack of proper capitalization and mixed tenses.

The best kind of Monster? By far, a Ducati Monster.

while i enjoy the premise of this posting, i have to admit that i found it difficult to read because the majority of it is so gramatically incorrect.

The Monster sounds great, but coconut isn't my style. I instead opt for the double peanut butter from C. Adam's in the MPM. If you get there when they are just out of the oven, you'll definitely add it to the list of favorites. I know, you're thinking "boring" because it is just peanut butter, but that cookie is so good that you'll have a transcendental moment right there...I promise.
