IMHO, the very best chocolate chip cookies in the whole wide world are currently found at scharffenberger's in the ferry building. flat, crispy, and stuffed with their chocolate chunks. a few months ago, i read that hershey's had bought scharffenberger, and said oh no, but the article promised (*!!?**!!) that scharffenberger wouldn't change and would still remain high end, and wonderful. this past weekend, however, i stopped by for a chocolate chip cookie, and was told by the staff that scharffenberger is changing bakeries and the staff is not happy.
and so it begins.
