This bakery has been hiding in plain sight from me for almost five years! Just across the street from my favorite pizza place, I am always too stuffed to consider looking for dessert. This time I went BEFORE the pizza, and I am so glad I did!
Great Dane specializes in beautiful and elaborate cakes, but they have a huge variety of brownies, cookies, breads, and other confections.
I tried the chocolate chip, double chocolate, M&M, and peanut butter cookies as well as a cute decorated sugar cookie. I couldn't pass up the chocolate dipped brownie decorated with the Cookie Monster! All items were delicious! The cookies were soft, chewy, and buttery, and the brownie was super rich. The double chocolate cookie was the best of the cookies and greatly satisfied my chocolate craving. The peanut butter cookie had a few too many peanuts for me. I was concerned that the decorated sugar cookie would look a lot better than it tasted, but that was not the case. It was lovely to look at and eat!
Standard cookies are 75 cents each. The larger decorated cookies are on average $4.00 a piece. The Cookie Monster brownie was $4.95.
