Ribbon Cutting hosts Mom’s Cookie Bar in Doylestown

DOYLESTOWN BOROUGH, Pa. — A line of walkers stretched the sidewalk along North Main Street Saturday morning toward Doylestown’s new sweet spot.

Minutes earlier, Lindsay Baker joined by her children, Jack, Avery and Bristol, officially cut the ribbon at Mom’s Cookie Bar located inside the Hart Building on North Main Street.

“We’re really excited to be here,” Baker told a crowd of people gathered on the sidewalk outside his new business. “I just want to bake cookies and be happy,” she said. “And that’s what I do.”

Flanked by giant balloon-shaped ice cream cones strategically positioned on either side of the door, Baker toasted her new store with champagne and offered sample cookies to the crowd of mostly young parents and children.

“It’s been a labor of love over the past six months,” she said. “Thank you to my kids for supporting me. I also want to thank the community for making my first two weeks a success and for all the smiles. The kids and babies that have arrived, it’s truly amazing. “

Dr. Vail P. Garvin, President and CEO of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, was there to officially welcome Mom’s Cookie Bar to Doylestown.

“This opening symbolizes the vibrancy of Doylestown, the vibrancy of Bucks County,” Garvin said. “And that makes me so proud of her – a young mother with three children starting a business. It’s so awesome.

“Every business in Doylestown is unique and that’s what brings the vibrancy. Just walking around Doylestown is an experience in itself. So long live Doylestown, long live Bucks County,” she said.

Baker, who grew up in Doylestown and graduated from Central Bucks, is thrilled to be a part of that drive now.

“I feel so blessed and so grateful to be part of this community and to open up a place where everyone can come and feel welcome and at home,” Baker said.

“It’s important to me. I want it to be a place where everyone feels loved,” she said. “And if you don’t have a mom or grandma at home who cooks for you, come here and we’ll take care of you and everyone will be like family.”

Mom’s Cookie Bar offers over 65 different flavors of home-made stuffed and regular cookie bars that she will alternate throughout the year.

“We also have a draft system that we developed so that we have chocolate milk on tap. We also have nitro cold brew coffee from ‘Backyard Beans’, a local brewer in Lansdale. And we make our own homemade sodas. We have root and orange beer on tap right now.”

Plus, Mom’s serves homemade soft serve ice cream featuring vanilla and a featured flavor of the week.

“With this, we make milkshakes and Avalanches, which are a bit like a Blizzard, which can be customized with various candies. I also cut cookie bars that can be added to Avalanches or mixed into milkshakes. shakes, which really taste awesome.”

In addition to sweetening the town, she also hopes that everyone will leave with a delicious memory.

“I’ve always loved baking, and I love seeing people smile after trying something I’ve made,” Baker says. “I’ve often been asked what my secret ingredient is and the answer is always ‘It was baked with love’.”
