Ben's Cookies

Ben’s Cookies is Covent Garden’s premium cookie emporium, chock-full of tempting and delicious American-style cookies.

The first shop was opened in 1983 in Oxford’s famous covered market by chocoholic Herge Rubinstein, author of The Chocolate Book.

Ben’s Cookies is famed for its gourmet, soft and chewy cookies which are tantalisingly displayed behind a glass counter in the Covent Garden store. Choose from freshly baked classic choc chip to peanut butter, dark chocolate and ginger or milk chocolate praline.

Ben’s Cookies started as a stall in Oxford’s Covered Market in 1983. Founded by cookery writer and chocoholic Helge Rubinstein, she named it after her son Ben (that’s him in our logo, drawn by her good friend and renowned illustrator Quentin Blake).
