One of our first stops on the island of Martha's Vineyard (our annual trip after Thanksgiving Day) is always the Black Dog. Usually it's for breakfast or lunch in Vineyard Haven Harbor...but until this trip, I'd actually never sampled the sweets. We stopped this time at the smaller outpost about a mile outside the Harbor.
The genuinely warm young woman behind the counter was quite welcoming and assured us that the chocolate-chocolate chip cookie was worth my time--she said she eats one almost every day. Sold! ABF got the regular chocolate chip, as well as a plain donut.
The cookies were outrageously yumtastic--one bite and I wondered if my mother had suddenly started worked on the Island! The chocolate-choc chip also had walnuts in it--win!
There's plenty of seating, and it was clearly after the lunch rush when we snapped these photos!
The toughest part at TBD is narrowing down your choices...one of the best problems to have!
