Famous @ 4th & Bainbridge 1978

Famous @ 4th & Bainbridge Walking down Fabric Row along South 4th Street, Philly diners wanted a good cookie to complete their meal at their favorite deli—thus, the Famous 4th Street Cookie was born. It all started with the traditional Chocolate Chip, though this was no ordinary cookie—It was big, fresh, chewy, and bursting with genuine chocolate chips. People said it was the best cookie they ever had (with apologies to grandma).

Famous @ the Reading Terminal Market 1982

Soon people wanted boxes of cookies to take home and share with friends. The Famous 4th Street Cookie Company was created, and the popular Reading Terminal Market location was opened. When Famous Cookies were baked, people lined up (and still do). As always, Philly knows food.

Our Goal is Simple

We make sure our cookies taste every bit as homemade as when you were growing up. To do that, we start with premium ingredients and a treasured family recipe. We have been using that same recipe for our famous, award winning cookies for over 40 years. We use only the finest, all-natural ingredients. There are never any preservatives nor artificial flavoring or colors of any kind. Our cookies taste homemade because they ARE homemade – baked the same way grandma did.  Our goal is freshness. Our cookies are always baked and shipped on the same day, that way they arrive soft and ready to melt in your mouth.

We respect and honor our history. We started with our classic Chocolate Chip Cookie that was big, thick, fresh, chewy, and oozing with genuine chocolate chips and we still serve it the same way today. Our focus on quality and premium ingredients has brought us much recognition. We have been featured on the Food Network, Philadelphia Magazine, and EveryDay with Rachel Ray. Our cookies are indeed famous! We are proud and determined to maintain the same high standards each and every day.
