OH SWEET SUGAR TROPHY >>>
I felt as if I damn well earned the giant peanut butter cookie.
After traveling south on North Union Avenue, throwing my back out on every pothole, giant dip, bump and crack, then struggling to find parking once I hit Sixth Avenue, I grabbed one of the giant cookies right next to the cash register - the size of an infant's head - at Metronome Coffee as a reward for my effort.
Corina Bakery bakes said massive cookies. The peanut butter cookie achieves the perfect salty-sweet balance and maintains a crumbly edge around a softer center. My other options were chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin and molasses - all ringing in at $2.
And the rewards kept coming. After ordering an Americano, the handsome barista asked me to choose a bean. The coffee house offers three espresso bean options. Today, it was chocolate organic, Metronome'smokey-chocolate-ish house blend -- and one that leans to the citrus side. Metronome's bean hit the spot.
