#Food & Drink
Let’s be honest: pandemic-life altered the way we celebrated special events last year. But while much changed, one thing remained the same: those special events simply demanded cookies and sweet treats. Birthdays, holidays and good ‘ole football days are just NOT the same without sugary delicious goodness. Enter: Whimsy Cookie Company. Whimsy finally opened the doors to its first Knoxville location on Kingston Pike last winter and now offers beautiful and delicious cookies for every occasion imaginable.
From birthday cookies, to wedding cutouts, to your simple 3 P.M. chocolate chip cookie date, these sister franchisees have gotcha covered!
First-timers must try their signature “gooey cookies,” (think moist, cake-like cookies) which come in a variety of flavors like butter, strawberry, red velvet, chocolate, birthday cake, and lemon. Just try ‘em all! Trust me.
Their painted pink building invites you into hanging glass chandeliers and all pink décor. Take a seat in their popular princess throne for a photo op or waste no time and just chow down on their plush hot pink sofas. This is the cutest spot for a girl’s day out, a mother-daughter day date, or just a sweet spot to take your significant other.
Fresh cookies are made daily by the staff at this sister-run business. The original location may be in Memphis, but Kristi Hawn, one of the sisters, mentioned that it’s truly become a family affair here in Knoxville – each member of their families can do all of the jobs. Even her dad bakes the cookies sometimes!
If you’re looking to purchase cookies for a personal occasion, we have good news: there is no minimum! They have done orders as small as ½ dozen to as large as 300 cookies. “Occasion cookies” are made available for each holiday as they come up, so specialty orders are not necessary unless you want something particular. In true pandemic fashion, they also have cookie decorating kits you can purchase to take home.
Curbside orders are available, and walk-ins are welcome for cookie perusal and pickup – because let’s be honest, we’re not waiting for a special occasion. Let’s celebrate anyway… with cookies!
