This Gas Station Store Has Some of the Most Mouthwatering Chocolate Chip Cookies In Los Angeles
(Los Angeles, CA) - On a warm Los Angeles afternoon, at a Gas Station on National Boulevard, a man carrying a wad of cash and some lottery tickets smiled, “Great cookies, right?”
That’s right—at a Gas Station.
Unless you live near a high-end gourmet cookie bakery in Los Angeles, the best store-bought cookie you’re going to get is still a far cry from what you can make at home.
That's why Zooies is such an excellent find for real cookie lovers.
The secret's out: Find the best chocolate chip cookies in Los Angeles at a gas station in Cheviot Hills.
You'll find Zooies when you drive into this unassuming, modern gas station in West LA just south of Beverlywood on National Blvd in Cheviot Hills.
It's above the We Got It! Convenience store.
You then go through the sliding doors to enter cookie heaven.
The cookies at Zooies are called "Gooies."
Zooies stuff the chocolate chip cookies with Ghirardelli milk and dark chocolate chips. They've got the perfect balance of chew and crunch with a crispy edge.
"Voted the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie in Los Angeles!"
In addition to their popular chocolate chip cookies, Zooie's owner, Arezou Appel, and a team of 5 full-time bakers make more than 30 kinds of cookies every day.
Appel started selling cookies out of her husband’s United Oil station in San Diego in 2009 but stopped when the station changed hands.
When Jeff acquired the station on National Boulevard, she decided to start up the cookie business again in Los Angeles in 2017.
The best thing about its location? At a gas station, you won't have to drive around looking for a place to park. It's very convenient.
So a Los Angeles gas station might not be the most likely place to find great cookies, but at Zooies, you can pick up a box of delicious chocolate chip cookies on your way home.
