Byrd Cookie Company’s Midtown gourmet marketplace has been a popular destination for both locals and tourists for years. So when the business opened a lunch bar last year inside its gourmet shop, it naturally became one of the hottest dining destinations in the city. The restaurant got so much great buzz, in fact, that Byrd decided to expand and add a dinner menu. To accommodate the eatery, the company’s gourmet shop moved next door and now occupies its very own space as the newly minted The Cookie Shop @ Byrd's.
The beautifully decorated shop features jars of world-famous Byrd cookies and crackers, which can be scooped and purchased by the ounce. The company’s popular collector’s tins can also be purchased at the shop. In true Byrd Cookie Company style, samples of all cookies and crackers are available for patrons to try while they browse the merchandise. Byrd Cookie Shop also sells regionally made sauces, jams and other tasty items.
When you visit The Cookie Shop @ Byrd's, be sure to stop by B. Tillman next door for lunch or dinner. The eatery serves Southern-inspired dishes with a slight French influence.
