Packing a picnic basket for a day trip to the beach can be a monotonous task. Water bottles, ham-and-cheese sandwiches on white, bags of salt and vinegar chips. Or maybe, because you’re a true Philadelphian, you’re making a pit stop at Wawa for an Italian hoagie with extra sweet peppers. There’s nothing wrong with the usual. Old habits die hard and it’s a fact that hoagies taste better with salt water in the air. This summer however, we’re breaking routine and packing up some of our local Philly favorites to bring down the shore because everyone needs a taste of home away from home.

Yeah, the Philly-born-and-bred late-night cookie chain already has six locations in Bryn Mawr, Center City, University City North, Templetown and at UPenn (where it all began), but this winter Insomnia Cookies is going to be tacking on a 7th outlet in Manayunk.
The basics will be the same–a menu of cookies, brownies and ice cream paired with both, open from noon ’til 3am, with delivery (yes, cookie delivery) starting at 4pm on weekdays and 1pm on weekends and running ’til 3am. And the new shop will be going into the space at 4319 Main Street sometime before the spring. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for opening details and ways to score free cookies.

If you haven’t had the chance to try an Insomnia Cookie, you should go ahead and do that. They’re literally everything you want out of a cookie, down to that commercial-worthy sexy split, connected by melty strands of chocolate chip. If you don’t feel like leaving your home for a cookie, don’t worry, they deliver—with milk, which is just all kinds of awesome.
Insomnia Cookies was born out of a dorm just a few years ago, and the owners have since opened four other locations in Philly. Their fifth opened yesterday in Midtown Village (135 S. 13th Street). To celebrate their grand opening, they’re offering a free cookie coupon and a 3-Chocolate-Chunk-cookies or $2 delivery promotion. The cookie coupon is on their Facebook page. Have fun.
