If you start craving dessert after the C-Store closes, you might want to try Midnight Cookie, a  hole-in-the-wall bakery in Fremont that stays open past midnight.

They offer cookies, ice cream, coffee and milk, perfect for a late night snack.

Midnight Cookie has traditional cookie flavors like chocolate chip, cookies and cream, oatmeal chip and more; they also carry unique flavors like s’mores, birthday, white chocolate macadamia and a monthly baker’s special.

Cookies are made fresh daily, so they are soft and cakey whenever customers take their first bite. Big enough to split with a friend or enjoy as a filling dessert, customer favorites include chocolate chip, red velvet and snicker doodle, which The Falcon business manager Mikayla Logue said, “tastes like Christmas.”

Customers can wash down their dessert with milk, soda or coffee. The Falcon suggests ordering a carton of milk to balance out the filling cookie flavor.

They have only one vegan cookie flavor available, chocolate chip, which could be a drawback for those who are vegan. None of the cookies offered are gluten-free, either.

If cookies aren’t your thing, you can try ice cream from Seattle local business Full Tilt, which are carried in shop. Falcon staff tried their salted caramel flavor, which worked well with the snickerdoodle and chocolate chip cookies. It wasn’t overly salty, but it was flavorful.

Full Tilt only offers two vegan ice creams at this location, and they cost $1 more.

However, don’t be fooled by Midnight Cookie’s hole-in-the-wall atmosphere; with chalk drawings and cookie portraits covering the walls, this cozy shop charms all customers who happen to peek inside.

The store would be a good place to hang out and eat cookies only with a small group, as there is limited seating, and the lighting is pretty dark. For a bigger group, the Falcon recommends getting your cookies to go or ordering from Uber Eats, Postmates, Prime Now or Grubhub.

Overall, even though Midnight Cookie doesn’t accommodate to those with dietary restrictions, the late hours and deliciously soft cookies make this shop worth a try.
