Dense, handmade, slightly irregular cookies are the signature treat at Nana’s, a cozy basement cafe tucked under a small hotel in Chelsea. Chocolate chip is a favorite; the rotation also includes M&M, oatmeal-butterscotch, and peanut butter cookies–all $1 apiece. Sometimes, the peanut butter cookies have jelly, too. “I have never had homemade cookies as good,” swears MatthewB.
Nana’s also serves coffee and pastries, danishes, croissants, and other baked stuff. Go early–it’s open only till 5 p.m. during the week, and only in the morning on weekends.
