Really tasty American style cakes, cookie ice cream sandwiches and other treats! Lovely little place in Camden market.
Cons: sometimes run out of stuff but I guess that shows
Really tasty American style cakes, cookie ice cream sandwiches and other treats! Lovely little place in Camden market.
Studied in London for the year. I took my non-vegan friends with me the first time and they LOVED it. The "milk" shakes are amazing. They taste like frosting. So rich and creamy! The cookies and scream sandwiches are amazing. So are every single dessert they sell...I should know as I've eaten them all. It's the perfect treat. A pretty long line can form but it's worth it.
What a fantastic place! I have tried the cookie ice cream sandwich and the peanut butter and jelly cookie, and both are amazing. The staff are kind and helpful, and the other customers seemed as excited as I was. It's a rare thing to find vegan baked goods that are even tastier than non-vegan ones. Even my non-vegetarian friend loved it! Thank you!
Nothing more to say than its the best vegan bakery I've ever been to.
Amazing confectionary-bar at Camden Lock. Street food/take away style place with 3 or 4 chairs to enjoy your delicious treat at the bar counter (no tables). I had a Tofoofoo shake with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce and it was fabulous.
Been here quite a few times, every time is good, somedays there are different cakes or pies and always nice oat and choc chip cookies and yummy marshmallow choc fudge brownies (Really chocolatey):)

Really delicious shakes and cakes, all of them vegans. The service is nice. If you want some sweet food, this is the place. I have returned more than one time.

Definitely, their brownies are between the best ones that I have already tried. The mosh mint brownie is a must.
I stumbled upon this place by chance when browsing Camden Lock and was really excited by the offerings of cookies, pastries and shakes. As I already had a big lunch I just opted for a chocolate chip peanut butter cookie which was warmed up (definitely go for the heated version!) and it tasted amazingly decadent! A good way to fuel up energy for some more shopping! I loved the little setup they have as well! I'm definitely going back there the next time I'm in London
The peanut butter cookies here are to die for! They use Swedish glacé ice cream which is delicious served with one of their brownies. Warm and gooey and chewy goodness - definitely recommend for vegans and non vegans alike looking for a sweet treat during their market visit.
If you like sweets and pastries, cookies, brownies and peanut-butter-chocolate tarts, then you’ve got to go there. This a just a stall in Camden market, but you can get a hot drink and sit to enjoy you cookies (warm) or take it for later. One of my key places to go for a treat when I’m in London.
Great spot for all things sweet: cookies, brownies, donuts, cakes and shakes. Everything is super sweet so beware! Treats can be ordered with a side of ice-cream or cream. Treats can also be warmed up for you in the microwave. Coffees and hot chocolate plus a selection of teas. The brownies are my favourite and they have even won awards! Nice seating area against the bar but only room for four to five people max. Can be a bit cramped if sitting as others ordering will be stood right next to you. Service is fine, but not always the most friendly. The feel of the place is alternative/punk/hipster.
I tried the espresso shake then returned for a salted caramel shake another day. As my sister put it "life changing"
When I arrived, there was no huge selection of treats. I tried double chocolate chip cookie ice cream which wasn't anything special, would have been much better if cookies where a tad warmer and chewy. There's quite a variety of milkshakes but I wasn't in a mood for one. Don't think I'll come back
This place is great. Some of the best vegan cakes and deserts I've ever tried. My favourite is the wookee, just amazing. The only down sides are that it closes early-ish and it can get quite expensive if you order a few things. Defiantly one of those places you go for a treat. Highly recommended.
I really love this place! The cookies,pies and tarts are really lovely and indulgent tasting without being sickly sweet. It seems like they make it all with good quality ingredients such as gluten free oats. Great for everyone!
We tried an ice cream with chocolate brownie and caramel sauce. It was a generous serving which we shared sat at the counter as it was a fairly quiet day - can understand that when the market is busier this isn't a relaxing place to sit but you can soak up the bustling market atmosphere or you can take things out to sit by the canal with a bit more peace.
Thoroughly enjoyed our ice cream and our server was patient while we chose a couple of cookies to take away and eat the next day.
Love the signage and presentation.
I LOVE this place. I just moved away from London and this is one of the things I mostly miss about the city.
The shakes are the best (please try the affogato!), the choc-chip cookie and the chocolate donut are my favourites.
Coffee is really good as well.
The only downside is the lack of space, so people can be really squeezed to fit in the small seating area.
It's true: the food here is great. Being gluten-free and vegan, this seemed like it would be heaven. The chocolate-chip cookie I had was delicious. The shake I had was marvelous. The donuts I took home to my husband were less like donuts and more like round cakes, but they still tasted great. What wasn't great was how the staff seemed annoyed with every single person coming to order and were incredibly curt when asked questions like the one my best friend asked: "which would you recommend?" (This hardly seems unreasonable.) There is a lot of sassy signage: "Prices DOA - dependent on attitude" and the irony is it was the staff that had seemed to have an attitude. There's a real hipster vibe here (which is fine) but just note this isn't a cozy place to go for coffee. The market is jammed and the cookie bar has about five stools, and even if you do sit, people ordering will be right at your shoulders. Also, for any microwave-phobes, they openly use one to melt their butters, etc.
Overall, I'm disappointed as I would have gone back and would have loved to recommend it if that staff hadn't been so disgruntled. Maybe they were having a bad day as others seem to like them and have had good experiences? Regardless, mine was not.
I adore this place, it is made of pure magic. I was so surprise that even though the food is gluten-free, it tastes even more superior than regular baked goods. The brownie is sensational, definitely the best brownie I have ever had in my life. I miss this place and can't wait to go back!
Cookies and scream is located in the heart of Camden and offers a lots of different chocolate cakes and sweet things: cookies, brownies, different cakes that are all vegan and very yummy. If you are in the area, you have to go there. You won't regret it. You can go eat what you've bought along the canal of Camden, which can leads you not far from heaven.
I was so happy when I found this bakery I had a chocolate chip cookie which was amazing !
I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but I'd heard so much about this place I had to try it out. My boyfriend and i split a milkshake and took some bits home with us. So impressed! Not too over the top sweet and well worth the money!
Another great vegan place in Camden. 15 minute walk from VX in Kings cross you can get great gluten free vegan cakes and cookies form this market stall. great attitude and wonderful milkshakes.
I like it so much I bought the t-shirt
Love this place. All is vegan and it is rid of heavily processed sweeteners. The brownies are delicious. My favourite has been the peanut butter jam milkshake. So yummy. The service isn't the friendliest. But then you are at a busy food stall in Camden. Will return when I can.
This place is INCREDIBLE. I had the peanut butter creme pie and it was to die for. The crust is made from the cookies which are all warm and gooey. There is a really good selection and you get to see them fresh baked in front of you. The lady who runs it is really nice too. Plus ALL VEGAN!!
There are a great variety of sweet treats available here. My favourite is the mint chocolate brownie warmed up with ice cream. The cakes vary a lot so there always seems to be something a little bit different.
Everything is vegan, gluten-free and delicious-looking. I had a cappuccino â‚¤1.80, gooey jam cookie â‚¤2, and a brownie with hazelnuts â‚¤2 to take away.
A few stools are in front of the counter, meaning that people may be blocking the view of the goods laid out there.
I love Cookies & Scream. I keep meaning to try something new, but that saucy little peanut butter and jelly cookie gets me every time. Try one warm with a cup of Tea Pigs liquorice and peppermint tea! Cheap and cheerful, there's always a brilliant range of baked goods on offer and I also usually squirrel something away into my handbag to eat later.
As for the staff? I'm not sure what the other reviewers were referring to, because I've only ever had ordinary pleasant service from the various staff members who work the cookie counter. Highly recommended, even if you're buying for later consumption.
I've been to Cookies and Scream a few times now. I always make a point to go when I'm in Camden. Their brownies are super rich and moist, chocolately and just yummy. Gluten free baking has a reputation for being dry and having a weird texture but that doesn't apply here. I've tried their cookie ice cream sandwiches which are equally as good.
It can be a little hard to get their attention at the bar sometimes but I can totally understand that, especially when working in a place as bustling and eclectic as Camden. I love this place!
I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with the reviews below- this place is amazing!
We come here every single time we come to London, and pick up a couple of bits to both eat and take home to freeze for a later date.
I normally have the (award winning!) brownie, but also the orange flavoured Blondie (it's like a white brownie) is utterly delicious too. Sometimes we get the cookies too, depending on what we fancy on the day!
The woman working there has always been friendly with us, and when she's been less talkative it's been because she's immersed in baking things for the afternoon. Last time we were there a (couple weeks back) she was giving me baking tips and asked about our day, etc...
Definitely worth dropping in to try something whenever you're in town!
I was full of high hopes, but as with darrenmasters' review, one of the cookies I had was oily and not very nice, and a fair bit of it got thrown away (which I very seldom can do) and the service was also off: more interested in her phone. However the cookie sandwich was good, and a peanut butter chocolate tray bake was nice. Possibly one for the Vegan Coeliac, but choose with care!
this looks promising, but was disappointing. The brownie was nice but the cookie I had was very greasy and felt like it was swimming in oil. Also the girl working there was very off, she wasnt vegan and was rude when I asked questions about the cakes.
