New places! Impressions yet?
I stopped by both today. Cone & Steiner seems like a mashup of ghetto bodega and upscale foodie shop. Top Ramen, fancy chocolate bars next to M&Ms, useless retail items, organic cat food. Little that I need, but convenient if you live or work in the neighborhood.
The chocolate cookie I got from Hello Robin was fine, chocolatey enough, but it appeared that the bottom layer of the cookie had been left on the baking pan. Still breaking in the new silpats? Cute space, but unimpressive. Cookies are about the easiest thing to make, I don't see the point of a cookie shop.
