still remember when I had my first Famous 4th Street Deli
chocolate chip cookie with walnuts. It was in 1979
at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. A woman named Liz
brought along a bag and offered me one.
Eureka!!! I snuck two others when she wasn't
looking. Best cookie I've ever had.
are giant cookies - four or so to the pound.
Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Walnut, Peanut Butter and
Oatmeal Raisin. Famous Deli cookies are sold at some
other places around town including Reading Terminal
Market, but they just don't taste the same as the
a whole deli with seats and deli cases and such.
Good food too. But somehow I never make it past the
cookie counter at the front of the place.
