Cookies and milk, “shaken, not stirred…”
As a young New Yorker who spent most of his free time dining out in Manhattan, I fondly remember David’s Cookies in the early 1980’s, the first eatery that marketed premium cookies exclusively in a boutique bakery that was all “the rage” in trendy noshing. So it is with some fond memories that I checked out Rude Boy Cookies in Albuquerque, a premium “milk and cookie bar” that plays Ska and reggae music (it’s a Jamaican thing) and stays open until midnight on the weekends.
As you can guess by their late hours, this is a grown-up approach to milk and cookies. With specialty cookies like salted caramel shortbread and delicious variations of classics like double chocolate and peanut butter, these custom-baked delights will satisfy a discriminating palette. In addition, the “milk bar” offers milk on tap that can be mixed with premium quality syrups from a local chocolatier. The flavors include vanilla, banana, peanut butter and mint, and is “shaken, not stirred,” in true bartender fashion. Ice-cream sandwiches, “cookie shots,” coffee and soft drinks are also offered.
Smartly, Rude Boy Cookies is located near the campus of UMDNJ, the perfect demographic for its eclectic culinary offerings. The Rude Boy reference in the name comes from the style of music played (it’s a Jamaican term) but the service could not be friendlier. So skip dessert when you eat out and head over to Rude Boy Cookies for a milk “nightcap” and cookies. Its the perfect way to end an evening!
