While ice cream treats take center stage at Bertie's, the variety of baked goods steal the show. There are dense, fudgy brownies. There are cake pops actually worth eating. My favorite so far has been the peanut butter cookies. These, like the shakes, are possibly the best peanut butter cookies I've had anywhere. They're perfectly baked with lacy, crispy edges, a soft (almost gooey) middle, and sprinkled with crumbled Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. If you see a jar of them on the counter, try one. You'll be very glad you did.
There is one thing I need to mention before you go: The place is almost impossible to spot from the street. It's on the southeast corner, tucked behind the pet food store. Believe me, it's worth tracking down. Why aren't you in the car yet? Let's go!
