Nestled in the middle of a buzzing University Town Center, is one of Orange County’s most popular little dessert spots called “Stax Cookie Bar”. This refreshing cookie and ice cream sandwich shop offers a variety of sweet treats that can cure even the most aggressive sweet tooth. All of their cookies are made in house, and baked fresh all day, every day. They use NON-GMO certified organic flour and other premium natural ingredients to make them as wholesome as possible. I also love the fact that they have gluten-free vegan cookies that my son can enjoy. But perhaps their best quality is the fact that all of their ice creams are natural and growth hormone-free (rBGH).
If you are a visual person like myself, you will absolutely appreciate the decor in this restaurant. The walls are covered in a white background with colorful dessert words in a very neat and eye-appealing arrangement. There are high definition photos of many of the desserts that they offer so you never have to wonder what it will look like or what ingredients are in it. They also have a large flat screen TV with a live cast of check-ins and twitter updates which I find flattering because it is nice to know that Stax appreciates you coming by and posting about it.
