A Restaurant’s Take

Jumbo chocolate chip cookies at Sherman Cafe

In Somerville’s Union Square, a great cookie from a great kitchen.

The folks who hang out at the Sherman Cafe in Union Square are in on a secret: This place has great food as well as great coffee. Saucer-size chocolate chip cookies are made from scratch (like just about everything else in this kitchen dedicated to good food made from as many local ingredients as possible), their tops crinkly-perfect and their insides studded with jumbo chips.
