Many of us have heard of speakeasies, but what about a hidden cookie speakeasy in Philadelphia? That’s right; it turns out that one cookie store chain has upped the standard in ways we could have never imagined – but you have to know where it is if you want to take a look inside.
A true hidden gem
Philadelphia has long been the home of plenty of fine dining establishments and groundbreaking ideas. Insomnia Cookies are no exception. The chain already had 191 locations before it opened up its latest branch of the chain in Philadelphia. Here, customers can enjoy cookies until the early hours of the morning as they serve up cookies until 1 am Sunday to Wednesday, and 3 am from Thursday to Saturday. Of course, there are plenty of flavors on offer, but you’ll have to look a little closer if you want to take a trip down the truly special part of the store.
The perfect sweeteasy
When it comes to a play on words, it’s safe to say that Insomnia Cookies is up there as one of the best with their sweeteasy. Visitors will have to take a look at one of the bookcases if they want to find out the secret of the chain as it turns out there is a hidden cookie speakeasy for all to enjoy – if you know where to look. Believe it or not, but fans can also get a glimpse at what lays inside from the front of the store as there is a secret menu hidden in plain sight in one of the windows in the alley.
Getting in isn’t easy
Of course, you can’t just walk into a cookie speakeasy; you need to know the password if you stand a chance of getting inside. Some people also report they have had to wait for an hour to get a glimpse, thanks to the social distancing rules that are still in place at the moment. Thankfully, you don’t have to look too far to find the password as Insomnia Cookies updates it once a week, but it can be found in their social media handle. All you need to do is look under the ‘highlights’ part of the page to find out.
Plenty to see and enjoy
Once you’re inside the Cookie Lab, there is so much to see and do. The interior has been decorated to perfection, but it’s not that that draws people in. That’s all thanks to the secret menu they have on offer, such as Strawberry Shortcake cookies. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also the chance to customize your very own cookie flavor to meet all of your personal tastes, all of which can be washed down with a cold milkshake.
Speakeasies are fun at the best of times. So what about a hidden cookie speakeasy in Philadelphia? That’s taking things to the next level. If you love all things sweet, then it could be time to plan a trip to the hottest new trend on the block.
