The City Bakery is already well known for their excellent standard and vegan chocolate chip cookies. Building on that success, they now sell a gluten-free, dairy-free, chocolate chip cookie with cacao nibs ($3) through their rapidly expanding Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery locations.

The cookie's texture is more crumbly rather than crunchy . But aside from that one difference, there's nothing about this cookie's flavor to indicate that it's got no dairy or gluten—it could easily be passed off as a standard chocolate chip cookie. There's plenty of large dark chocolate chunks and crunchy cacao nibs as well.

This is a solid and tasty cookie regardless of your dietary restrictions. There's also a gluten-free, fat-free coconut chip cookie that uses the same soy milk base. And don't forget to ask for your 25% discount if you arrive by bicycle or skateboard.
