Got the munchies? It’s midnight, your local bodega is closed for renovations, and there’s not a sweet morsel to be found in your apartment? Starting this Thursday small-batch Texan-style baker Brooklyn Kolache Co. will be stepping up to meet Brooklyn’s demand for late-night cookie (and milk!) delivery, DNAinfo first reported.
While the neighborhood bakery specializes in Kolaches — a puffy pastry with a center full of fruit that originated in Central Europe and is now the subject of festivals in numerous Texan towns –their delivery service, Bake Sale, will be offering up a variety of cookies and, should you be feeling thirsty, you can add a pint of Battenkill Valley Creamery milk to your order. Cookie options include the gluten-free monster cookie, classics like peanut butter, and more original recipes like purple yam, according to DNA.

Bake Sale’s services can be ordered through Grubhub, on Brooklyn Kolache’s page, or on Postmates, a delivery on-demand service. If you order through GrubHub, you have to live within a two-mile radius of Brooklyn Kolache’s 520 Dekalb Ave. shop; if you order on Postmates you can live anywhere in New York, but delivery fees will vary accordingly.
Cookies will cost you $2.50 per, or $21 for a dozen, with ten percent of sales benefiting non-profit Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger, owner Autumn Stanford told DNA. In time, Stanford added, she hopes to add some savory options, maybe even pepperoni rolls (!!!) to the delivery service.
Stanford opened the bakery in 2004 off money raised from Kickstarter, according to a 2013 interview with entitled Homesick Texans visit bakery for a taste of home in The Austin Chronicle.
So who cares that Insomnia Cookies doesn’t deliver to Brooklyn? We don’t need ’em, and all them Manhattanites are going to have to pay extra in delivery fees if they want OUR cookies delivered across the river.
Oh, and more good news: Brooklyn Kolache Co. is hiring. According to a listing on their site, they’re looking for “an experienced barista (latte art a plus)” to work in their Bed-Stuy store. Are you friendly? Are you available weekends? Send your resume and info to brooklynkolacheco.com.
