In aqua blue surrounds as sweet and delicious as its cakes and cookies, this Brooklyn bakery offers handmade desserts that will make you want to stay all day. While One Girl Cookies bakery is no secret to Cobble Hill residents, where the original bakery remains, it's a tasty addition to DUMBO's touristy neighborhood with its ferry ride drop-offs, and scenic walk over the Brooklyn Bridge back into Manhattan. Cakes, cupcakes, and Brooklyn Whoopie pies are all made here on premise with a unique flair, and fresh flavorful ingredients. Stop in One Girl Cookies for the gorgeous vintage-inspired décor, and an unbeatable home-made treat that could have been baked by your favorite TV mom.

Nibbling at One Girl Cookies one bite at a time. One of Cobble Hill's best kept secrets, this dessert spot is fit for a princess. If fairy tales did come true, you would find Cinderella sitting at the dessert counter, enjoying a plate of petite cookies and a glass of perfectly chilled milk. With an interior designed to the nines and cookies to match, One Girl Cookies is a true wonderland of sweetness. For those who find One Girl Cookies too beautiful to eat, consider presenting a boxed set of cookies to a friend. Each gift box of cookies is adorned with beautiful hand blocked papers, perfectly matched ribbons and sepia toned prints of family photos from days gone by.
One of the owners of One Girl Cookies grew up in an Italian family, and explained to us that eating brings people together. This emphasis on family is felt throughout the cafe, from the family tree and comforting family photos adorning the walls, to the special care given to name each cookie...Danielle, Olga, Lana and Susanna to name only a few. We asked why she has chosen to present such beautiful petite cookies instead of the large cookies so commonly found today. The answer was as heartwarming as we expected: she wanted to make opening a box of cookies as special as opening a box of chocolates.
Everything is special in this cookie cafe: tapas style cookies served with a European flair, hand made gelato, cookies, cupcakes, brownies and cakes by the slice. The Counter and table café seating is perfect to enjoy with a friend.
Shipping cookies nationally. Packaging cookies for event favors and perfect or just about any holiday or occasion: wedding parties, Valentines Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Christmas and Hanukkah.
