What’s the best remedy for insomnia? A cookie, duh! Well, while it’s not scientifically proven (yet), it can be delicious. And you can get your fix up until 3am at Insomnia Cookies. They have a whopping 40 store locations throughout the US, and luckily, one of them is located in Murray Hill, so I gave them a visit.
What started out as a dorm room idea, the late night college community demanded some fresh baked cookies. And, as many small businesses start, a great concept was born with a demand for stores. They have a select variety of cookies and brownies to choose from. Their locations are open, as well as available for delivery, until 3am.
I tried their Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup cookie. Man alive, these cookies are no joke and super delicious. They’re freshly baked, served up warm, and you just want to wrap it around you like a cookie blanket. The edges are just crisp enough, and the inside is soft and almost gooey. The flavor has a huge punch of peanut butter, with some peanut butter chips, and, of course, a full-on peanut butter cup in the middle. Genius.

The Long and Short: Would I go back? Uh, hell yeah. Or, screw it, I’ll just order them for delivery.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely. These cookies are legit.
