Great place for a fresh moist cookie. Got Black Forest, Nutella and milk chocolate. Also bought a cookies and cream milkshake but found it a little bitty.

Moustache milk and cookie bar…Well all I can say is that they are a dream come true!!!! THIS PLACE IS HEAVEN!! As soon as you walk in, a big whiff of fresh smelling cookies smacks you in the face. I could stay in there all day long! It’s a small narrow shop, but this makes them unique! They can only seat 2 people by the window, and maybe 2 up on bench, in front of their counter. I’ve sat there before, by myself, and it was kind of awkward because It was like I was in their face haha! But It’s cool how you can see their kitchen and watch them make the cookies! Every time I come to Auckland, I make it a priority to come here!! I’ve tried a few of their flavours now! Their 3 for $10 deal is always good, but not so much if your eating them all to yourself, like I do! The flavours I have tried are:

-Peanut butter: A fudgy chocolate cookie, filled with a generous amount of peanut butter. If you’re a big fan of peanut butter, then this is the cookie for you! However, I found the peanut butter a bit too sickly for me, but it was still nice!

-Nutella: I think this has to be my all time favourite!! It’s a soft but crispy vanilla cookie, with a nutella centre! As soon as you bite into it, the nutella oozes and, melts in your mouth. Nutella and cookies!! What could go wrong!

-Snickers: I had this as an ice cream, paired with a nutella cookie. It was yummy! But I found the snickers chunks a bit hard and chewy to eat, especially with the ice cream sandwich. It was still delicious though!

-Snickerdoodle: This is a good old classic flavour! The crispy cookie on the outside, but soft within, covered in delicious cinnamon sugar! If you get this cookie, I recommend separating it from your other flavours, as the cinnamon sugar contaminates the others, leaving them all tasting like snickerdoodles! Haha!

-Chocolate chunk: This is another classic flavour, but using whittakers dark chocolate as their chunks! The chunks are quite big (a piece of whittakers chocolate blocks), so if you like whittakers dark chocolate, then you’ll like this! Otherwise its quite rich! This cookie is best warm from the oven, as the chocolate chunks are slightly soft and melted!

-Rhubarb and apple crumble (GF): This was a special, and I thought I’d be spontaneous and try it. I was told it tasted like apple crumble, and it sure did! Because it was gluten free, the texture was a bit different from the other cookies (more dense), but it still tasted just as good! The centre was filled with soft rhubarb and apple! Truly like eating an apple crumble

-Bounty: This was a special too. It was a chocolate cookie, with a piece of bounty bar in the middle. Because the bountry bar was cooked in the middle, it became melted into the cookie. The whole cookie was also covered in toasted coconut!! Quite sweet but delicious!

-Macadamia nut and white chocolate: This was a nice change from usual. It contained chunks of macadamia nuts and whittakers white chocolate! I love this combination!

They also sell ice cream cookie sandwiches. I’ve only had one before as they’re quite expensive ($9) I had the nutella and chocolate chunk cookie together!! It was pure heaven!

Iv’e also had their cookies and cream milkshake, which I have been craving a lot recently! It’s a mixture of 4 oreos, ice cream and cream! It was so thick, creamy and delicious!! Nothing can beat cookies and cream! Although they have a lot of yummy and unique flavours that I’ve been wanting to try!

All of their cookies are amazing!!! Theres no doubt they’re at their best when they’re fresh and warm out of the oven! They’re always coming up with new flavours, which makes me want to go and try them ASAP! I know they’re closing down soon, and becoming a cookie bus โ˜น Im going to be so sad when they do! This gives me all the more reason to go there as much as I can!!

I loooooove their cookies! I've only tried them this year and fell in love with them instantly! I always buy 3 cookies cause it's for $10 and then I can get different flavours! My favourite flavour is Oreo marshmallow!

Perfect cookies. Crisp on the outside, soft and chewy in the middle. Wash them down with some milo flavoured milk!

This place is small and only has a few menu items, but it does them well. Great place to take kids.

It had been way too long since I'd been here since inception and I ended up popping in twice in the same week. As expected by everyone their cookies are obviously great! It's not necessary that you'd be served a warm cookie though, most are at room temperature. On the earlier visit I got a cookie dough milk shake, it was real pricy but disappointing, I saw the girl make it, she just blended a choc-chip cookie with some milk and ice-cream so it wasn't actually cookie dough and the cookie bits were too large to sip through the straw, hence at least 1/4 of the cookie went to waste as it just sat at the bottom of the milkshake container. On the later visit I decided to opt for a whittakers mocha, it didn't make sense for Moustache to serve this beverage as there is no seating area and it's awkward having it on the go because the chocolate bar takes a while to melt into the coffee before you can fit the lid on the takeaway coffee container.

Definitely a nice little store for cookie lovers! When I'm in the city I usually tend to stop by and pick up a cookie from here. I'm not into the drinks as I feel they overdo them with all the chocolate.

๐Ÿช๐Ÿช๐Ÿช๐Ÿช What a dinky cookies & milk bar!
The cookies are a perfect balance between soft and crunchy. Possibly the best I've EVER had! You can really taste the flavours rather than just that generic 'sugar/sweet' taste that so many cookies suffer from nowadays. Moustache provides friendly and personable service with reasonable prices. I will definitely swing by this unique shop when I am in the CBD next. What a treat!

Possibly the cutest place to grab something sweet in Auckland CBD. The concept is very cute and just that little bit different to other cookie bars in the city. The staff are super cute and friendly and always up for a quick chat. The range of cookies is forever changing with a few flavors that always stay the same - chocolate chunk and Oreo marshmallow are the two superstars which can always be found there. They make fresh batches of cookies multiple times a day and you can even watch the process. The place is small and you can't really sit in but that would be the only downside. Aside from the cookies the drinks are pretty good but a little overpriced (milkshakes for over $7) but the mocha's are bliss - a whole chocolate bar included in them!

I make an effort to go to Moustache every time I'm in Auckland.
The cookies are so tasty and the interior is so cute.
My favourite is the Nutella cookie, and the location makes them a perfect intermission snack for a show at the St James.
Only downside is very little seating space inside, so not great for a rainy day catch up.

Moustache is one of the cutest little eateries in Auckland. Such a great idea as well! They have amazing cookie flavours and do cookie of the week as well! Haven't actually sat in here and eaten a cookie yet because it's always been so full, but the cookies and drinks are just as good to go.

My favourite cookie that I've ever gotten at Moustache has to be the mallowpuff cookie which was a big mallowpuff with a little mallowpuff inside! SO COOL AND SO YUM. Service is always great here as well! The staff here are always friendly!

I went here with my boyfriend and we both had the cookie and coffee deal. I had the chocolate chip and Oreo biscuit which was delicious, but a little overpriced compared to rival cookie vendors around town like Mrs. Higgins. The lady who served us seemed less than ecstatic and didn't say hello first, it could have been an off day though. And the flat white was about a 4/10 coffee-wise.
Other than that, the shop smells and looks great, but I only liked those two things. I will have to try the hot chocolate one day and see if it changes my opinion.

Moustache is one of my favourite places in Auckland! Cookies are my one weakness so this place is made for me. I love how they always have a cookie of the week, and how they're such innovative/ unusual creations.

I had the popcorn cookie not so long ago, expecting it to just be a plain cookie with some popcorn slapped on top, but it was delicious!!! And the whittakers hot chocolates are as equally as good.

The only downside is how tiny the place is....but I suppose that's due to the shortage of spaces along queen street. I would love to see moustache open up in a bigger place or a second store in another location!

Cute little place with delicious cookies - crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside! Must try their Oreo marshmallow cookie which is made using cocoa powder hence its less sweet. So good!

Also check out their special cookie of the day which can sometimes be quite unique!

The only downfall is the price, as it is rather expensive.

Great idea ๐Ÿ˜Š good cookies and milkshakes. If you enjoy a fresh made chocochip cookie this is the place. Is not place to seat so do not plan a date there. I have been there several times . Last time I went with my baby and a friend after bowling, we seat in the only table inside the and was not a good idea as people is literally over you ๐Ÿ™ˆ. So I suggest you to grab your favourite cookie and drink and seat at Elliott street or Aotearoa Centre. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘ -used a old pic-

For me a visit to Queen Street means a ritual visit to one of the most unique eateries, Moustache. The cookies are always so fresh tasting & delicious, can not get enough of the Oreo and marshmallow one. Have also been following the owners journey with Moustache on Facebook and her commitment and enthusiasm is very moving & inspiring :)

Very cute little cookie shop. Little bit pricey but it's mostly worth it. Their chocolate chip cookies is one of my favorites and the cake version is SUBLIME. My friends and I absolutely love their cookie cakes. I also quite like their hot chocolates but they don't keep well. After a little while the melted chocolate separates from the milk so if you order a hot beverage here I suggest you drink it fast!

Seeing that I just missed my bus, I went for a cookie just around the corner at Moustache. The custard and rhubarb one was a delight as the tart centre really cuts through the sugar coating yet the two compliments each other at the same time. A rather unique and delectable treat :D

I have heard so many great things about this place from my friends so since I work almost next door to them now, I couldn't resist but give the cookies a go. I went for the macadamia nuts and white chocolate because it was my favourite from Mrs Higgins. However, for almost double the price of a Mrs Higgins cookie, I feel that these cookies are quite over rated. I am definitely going to try their other offerings because I also heard their milkshakes are really nice. I just can't say the same about their cookies. 
Ps the cookie was really oily. Maybe it was fresh from the oven...

Wonderful lil decadent treat when you need one! Scrumptious cookies, including gluten free... The ice cream sandwich is sinful, and plenty enough to shared with a loved one. Love the way they make mochas with a Whitaker's sante bar, fab flavoured milkshakes and a premium tea supplier. This lil cookie bar can't go wrong, such a shame they'll be closing their doors, but bring on the cookie bus!

My absolute favourite cookie/dessert place in Auckland! So sad that it’s shutting down, but am very excited for the cookie bus to come. I have visited this place countless times, and am always greeted by cheerful, bubbly staff and a delicious array of cookie flavours to choose from. I adore their milk bottle lights and cute as a button decor throughout the shop, as well as the fact that the kitchen is open so you can see exactly what they’re putting into the cookies. 

A few flavour recommendations include Snickers, Nutella, chocolate chunk, and whatever special cookie they have at the time, it’s always a goodie! PIctured was their special 'cookies and cream' cookie, that also came with free ice blocks too! They also do the most amazing peanut butter milkshakes; a little bit pricey but definitely worth every cent.

Delicious cookies and hot chocolates! Great tasting flavors and I love that it changes often. I've have tried many cookies and they have always been good. I also tried the ice cream sandwich and that was yummy. I live a fair distance away from town/ Auckland CBD but if I need a good quality cookie there's no doubt that I'd drive here to pick one up!

Had a espresso shake from here, it was good. A nice coffee flavour from the real espresso and creamy. It was just quite a small size and the most expensive shake at $8+ I've had. For the price this probably wouldn't be my first choice.

A little over-rated for us. Have had the cookies and coffee shake, shake was very pricey ($8.50) and quality or serving size didn't match up. I think there could be a better balance between using quality products and pricing strategies.
Cookie was ok, didn't blow me away despite the better quality ingredients. Unfortunately I prefer Mrs's Higgins. 

It's a nice novelty but won't be going out of my way to visit.

I've been thinking about their peanut butter hot chocolate all week! Tried one for the first time on Sunday and it was devineeee!

They also have nutella and chilli hot chocolate as alternatives. I would really love to try the nutella one, but pretty sure if I got there, I wouldn't be able to stop myself from ordering the peanut butter!!

Cookies at moustache come in funky flavours, as well as the classics. My favourite would have to be the Snickers :D

And also, BEAUTIFUL shop.

Moustache cookie is the best when it's freshly out of the oven. My best experience there was when I first tried their warm black forest cookie. The cookie was puffy, crunchy and smelt and tasted wonderful. The chocolate sauce/lava filling was just perfect and was made even more perfect by the taste of slightly citrusy berries. Nothing topped that afterwards but I love all their cookies. :)

Moustache have perfected the art of making cookies that are crunchy, soft and chewy all at once. Prices are higher than your standard cookie price, but definitely worth it for the creativity and effort which their bakers put into every cookie. Keep an eye out on their Facebook page for special edition cookies.

Still Moustache rises. Is there a limit for this popular bakery café in the heart of Auckland? Competition is so tough in these areas, and having the courage to produce the variations of classics should be celebrated. For a young owner, the resisting the temptation to open up the franchise is impressive indeed - why would one risk quality when she can control the direction of her creations entirely? Bravo Moustache, bravo.

The moment you step into this nicely compact cookie bar, you are simply overwhelmed by a pleasant feeling of warmth (especially on a cold, wet winters day). There's something about 'milk and cookies' that makes it so original and welcoming. This place has lovely, gooey and warm cookies to make anyone's day a fantastic one. Their hot chocolate is lovely (a bit too sweet for my liking but still great). Their milkshakes are not too sweet, not too dull. With Whitakers chocolate, it's pretty hard to get it wrong. Whatever flavour of cookie you favour, this place will find you the perfect match. I recommend this place for sure!

LOVE THEIR COOKIES! I always go there for their cookies and its never failed me. Love how they have "special" cookies and their cinnamon cookies which are gluten free. Their choc chunk cookies are great too.

They recently bought back the "milk and cookie" back. And damn it's good! They've even got a bacon and chocolate cookie which is limited or "special" one.

Overall, love coming to this place. Is such a shame that they have to close down soon :(

I've been to Moustache many times over the years and every time has been a delight. Their black forest cookie is my absolute favourite, although the others are also good. Milkshakes are great (particularly the cookies and cream flavour), chocolate milk is fun if you are feeling childish. I hope they are around for years to come. There aren't many seats inside but somehow I've always managed to get a seat when I've really wanted one. A cheap way to add a little bit of lovely into your day. Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar totally rock at what they offer. I wish them all the best with their bus and future dreams.

So much deliciousness held inside this wee cafe! Everything about moustache is perfection and while living in Auckland it became a sneaky regular weekly treat. I would often get friends a gift box of Moustache cookies with the Chocolate Oreo and Marshmallow being a favourite. I loved their weekly cookies which were so innovative! The staff were so kind and warming and the service was always great. I'd definitely recommend this to any one visiting Auckland and all the locals that have been hiding under a rock.

An absolute treat!!! 2nd time in 3 years I have come here, both times getting the cookie icecream sandwich. So treat. Crisarna and i shared it with one oreo marshmallow cookie, and one special edition chocolate chunk with bacon. The bacon cookie was soooo good! I was skeptical at first about the chocolate bacon one, but they really had carried it out well. I was disappointed that my friend Sydney who was with us ordered one too but with two choc chunk cookies that were fresh out of the oven and warm, where as ours was cold which was nice, but didn't seem as nice when Sydney had fresh baked cookies versus ones out of a jar. The crowded store environment they have is never nice, but it's satisfactory as there are no other options. The ice cream sandwiches are a definite win though!!!!

Oooooooh gimme dem delish cookiiies!! But the thing that wins me over EVERY. SINGLE. TIME are their MILKSHAKES. Their salted caramel shakes stole my heart, and though it broke when it was taken off the menu, they quickly won me back with their Aero Peppermint flavour - it's like eating an actual peppermint Aero, but while in heaven :)
Moustache also do a nice range of Harney & Sons tea - I like the cinnamon tea with a bit of milk and sugar (and a big bag of cookies to go!), and I also like their coffee too. I hope that when their Milk & Cookie bus gets up and running that they bring back the salted caramel shake. I'd happily make the trip there every day for that < 3
Oh and another plus side of the new bus is that there's hopefully going to be much more room than their cramp outlet that they're currently working in, and the staff and owner deserve better than that!! Moustache Milk & Cookie Bar (soon-to-be bus) is hands down my favourite place for a treat, thank you!!

Thhhhuper delicious!!! Want more cookie. Moorish chewy cookies that aren't sickly sweet! Heapsa combinations to try! I suggest if you are going to a dinner party and want to bring something different as a thank you gift these bad boys are it!

A mate bought a box of 6 to share between 5. I think the sharing is caring attitude made it all the more fun! Definitely mix n match n swap bites with each other.

Our choices for the evening were: Chocolate peanut butter filled, oreo, snickers, choc chip, cinnamon, and macadamia white choc. My favourite of the lot was the peanut butter chocolate. You will have a quiet grin from ear to ear no matter which cookie you choose. This place makes you feel warm n fuzzy from the inside out. It was almost as if they awoke my inner child. I could even hear cookie monster happily say "mmmmm cookie..." as I was chewing away. There is just something nostalgic about these magical morsels!!!

I moustache you why you are still reading; go on! Get some cookies already!!!

'Twas a cold, rainy day in Central Auckland...

I found out about this cookie bar online and wanted to visit for a while. Today, I finally did and oh, it was so good! The store had a cute and cozy environment and the staff there was so welcoming!

With help from a friendly staff and my very patient boyfriend, I picked out the Oreo Marshmallow Cookie and a banana primo milk, and the two went hand in hand! I would definitely be visiting there when I'm in the city again.

Slightly sad I only now managed to finally try their cookies - if you weren't aware they're fundraising to move to a 'Moustache Cookie Bus' as they're closing down their Wellesley street shop.

I've seen many of their creations on Facebook and through Instagram feeds and have been envious of their creativity and the deliciousness I have now tasted.

I found that the cookie was a bit expensive for the size (and I was so guttered that the Black Forest cookie was sold out) but once I actually tried the cookie.... Money is no issue for good food. I tried the snickers cookie and it was perfect! A tad sweet for me but it was crunchy on the outside and semi-soft and gooey on the inside; the way I love my cookies.

I would highly recommend any Aucklanders that haven't tried it yet to go for it now! Also, if you have anything to spare, donate to a good cause and help Moustache! I'll definitely be visiting a few more times and try as many cookies as possible if i can.

The customer service was great too (note: this was at 9pm so kudos for the staff being so happy at that time of night!)

Moustache is a novelty of a cafe (or as they call themselves a 'bar') where the highlights of the menu are cookies and dairy.The cafe is incredibly small and you'll rarely find space to sit, which means you'll frequently be taking away your order. It's a shame that there isn't more space inside to sit down and enjoy the homely premises. The palm sized cookies come in both unique and more classic flavours such as peanut butter, marshmallow and black forest. The cookies are undeniably tasty, but will each set you back $3.5. Cinnamon was my favourite, I'm a sucker for spices. They're perhaps the best cookies in the city centre, but they are not exceptional and the price point doesn't justify frequent consumption.

The rest of menu is of mixed quality. You have your coffees, milkshakes and a few other types of beverage. Thumbs up for the refreshing iced coffee. Massive thumbs down for Moustache's version of a mocha. My mocha was warm, not hot, and the chocolate aspect came in the form of a thick chocolate finger. The problem was pretty simple; the finger wouldn't melt fully into the coffee and so I was left with warm coffee + chocolate finger. Utterly bizarre and a total fail of a mocha. However there is some good news on the beverage side.

It’s the milkshakes where Moustache leaves its mark. Like the cookies there are a mix of traditional and more interesting flavours; chocolate, aero peppermint and cookies & cream among others. Each of the milkshakes I've tried has been lusciously creamy, with rich flavours and the perfect level of saccharine. So far Moustache is my favourite place to pick up a good milkshake in Auckland!

Moustache serves unique, but overpriced, cookies and great milkshakes. It’s worth trying the cookies for yourself at least once, and visiting on a warm summers day for one of their sinful milkshakes.

This place is a delight. Truly a Milk and Cookie "bar", set out in a long thin room with a few bar stools if you'd fancy hanging around to watch cookies come out of the oven. I have yet to try a cookie that doesn't fill all expectations. Definitely recommended as a walk-by dessert joint.

In Auckland you generally have two places to go when you want a cookie fix: Mrs Higgins franchise shop on Queen St or the famous Moustache.

The cookies and milk bar is an intimate little shop on Wellesley Street next to the Civic and due to its size, its not unusual to see people lining up outside regardless of the weather. The sweet aroma that escapes the store doors also draws in by-passers and is fast becoming a tourist favourite, well, for those that knows about it at least.
I went to their store yesterday to grab a couple of cookies with my friends just in case the shop ceases to exist in the future (there were news that they may be closing) and I have some good news to those worried about this. After chatting with their friendly staff it seems like they have reached a compromise and their situation is now looking a lot brighter.
So, for now, they won’t be going anywhere (yay!)

Very recommended to try! Although it is only a small shop in Wellesley Rd, the taste of the cookies here is way more engaging! Unfortunately when I came here during mid day, they run out of peanut butter cookies which is quite famous. I did try oreo and marshmallow, sneakers, and cinnamon cookies and I am not disappointed! I love the cinnamon cookies, reminds me of a cinnamon donuts. I love the chocolate-rich flavour of the oreo and marshmallow cookies, so satisfying! Sneakers cookies are also nice with the caramel, chocolate and peanut flavour combined together. Look forward to come here again!

A cute little place to visit with wonderful staff. When they first opened I was hesitant on trying out the place when their cookies were priced at $4. But since they've dropped their prices to $3.50, I find that their cookies are definitely worth it. I loved it when they used to create cookies of the week, giving their patrons something new to try. It's always a treat coming here and getting a freshly baked cookie. A lively place to visit especially when you're trying to impress a certain someone.

Yuuuuuuuuuuuuum! The cookies here are just delicious, warm, moist and gooey on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I have tried the Oreo, chocolate chunk (yes chunk, not chip), snickers, Black Forest and white chocolate macadamia, all amazing. I think the standout for me was the Oreo and marshmallow cookie. I highly recommend if you are looking for a sweet treat in CBD.

I don't often spend a weekend in Auckland but when I do I HAVE to visit Moustache everyday. All of their cookies are delicious, particularly chocolate chunk, snickers and the unbeatable oreo marshmallow. It's developing into a bit of an obsession. 

The price is reasonable, the staff are really friendly and the store is super cute. Always a positive experience. I would highly recommend the three cookies for $10 deal. 

Suggestions: a larger premises (maybe with a sit down menu with a few more cookie and ice cream options?) and a branch in Wellington (pleeease!!). That being said, I respect the fact that Moustache put quality over quantity first. it ensures I never walk away disappointed.
TLDR: Oreo marshmallow is love, oreo marshmallow is life.

I am a huge fan of milk and cookies, so I was really excited to hear that a milk and cookie bar was opening up right in the centre of town!

My absolute favourite cookie at Moustache is the Oreo Marshmallow - it tastes great and looks so appealing in the jar! I also like the Snickers Bar, Choc Chunk and Peanut Butter. I like eating these will a glass of normal milk or chocolate milk. So delicious!

I haven't tried their milkshakes yet, but friends tell me that the Peanut Butter one and the Vanilla one are to die for!

I would say the only downside is the size of the shop - there are only a few seats, so I don't recommend coming in with a big group. However, if you are going to see a movie around the corner, then I recommend coming to Moustache, buying a range of cookies and eating them while watching the movie! They are a delicious alternative to popcorn and ice creams that you would normally order at the cinema!

So, if you're in need of a sweet (or chocolatey) fix, I recommend going to Moustache as it always hits the spot!

First recommended to me by a friend when I was still working at the pharmacy who said I absolutely had to go there. Since then I've been more than a few times - and haven't regretted it once! The hot chocolates are delicious, and the cookies are amazing! Have told so many people about it since, and haven't met one person who wasn't impressed. Talking about it is making me crave another one!

It all started with a tweet after someone had seen my recipe for clean snickers cups in the blog, they tweeted saying that Moustache did a snickers cookie. Oh crap I try to stay away from cookies because I can get a bit cookie monsterish as I love them so much but know they aren't the best for me. I was in town with a friend and was on my way home when I remembered that moustache was near the civic center and decided to go in on the off chance they had the snickers cookie. They didn't but I did get hooked in and try the chocolate chunk which was Blummin amazing, just enough crunch on the outside with softness on the inside and amazing chocolate chunks all throughout. Divine!


I went back and tried the snickers cookie, which was so soft in the middle it was amazing. Although I did prefer the chocolate chunk one to be honest. I also got a dark hot chocolate which was nice too.

Moustache milk and cookie bar is one of favourite places to go

Staff are friendly, cookies are delicious, milkshakes are the best, tea selection is yum and the coffee is good

We visit Moustache at least once a week. For about a year they had cookie of the week and I didn't want to miss out on any of them. The creativity of the flavours was amazing, to mention the squiggle, the mellow puff, the lamington, lemon meringue, feijoa... And many more..

From the classic selection we regularly have chocolate chunk, black forest, white chocolate and macadamia, cinnamon or Oreo marshmallow.

The milkshakes are awesome, not just a milkshake but a thick shake made with icecream mmm

They serve Harney & sons tea, our favourite flavours are Paris and hot cinnamon spice

Love this place and you will see us there

Despite the chilly weather, I have been having ice cream sandwich cravings whenever I finish dinner. By far, the best place to purchase these delicious moreish morsels is Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar.

Cookies are their main selling point, and you get swallowed by the lovely aroma of freshly baked cookies as soon as you walk near their entrance. Flavours like Nutella, Snickers, chunky chocolate, black forest and peanut butter, these big round gems are displayed in huge glass jars on the counter as well as the cooling rack for the ones fresh from the oven. You can choose two different flavours of cookies for their ice cream sandwiches which they warm up before assembling. In terms of ice cream, they only have vanilla but it is a great way to let the flavours of the cookie shine. I like how they cut the sandwich in half, making it perfect for sharing the calories with a friend.

They make a great cup of coffee and the service is always friendly. The only downside is that the store is small and it is more tailored for takeaway with limited seating options inside. Nevertheless, great place to stop for a cookie and an ice cream sandwich or two!

I really enjoyed going into Moustache with a friend of mine today. The place smelt amazing and the cookies were displayed in these fantastic glass jars in true Ina Garten fashion.
I had a snickers cookie and my friend had an Oreo and marshmallow cookie. I have to say that I preferred mine as it wasn't as sweet and the peanut flavour was really subtle and not overwhelming at all. The cookie was crisp on the outside and still gooey and chewy in the middle.
I would definitely go back and spend a little longer making my decision and even go with some dipping milk next time!
Warning: these are not super cheap so don't think they'll be a daily indulgence but they're good for a treat and rumour has it that Moustache do cookie cakes too!

If you're a regular in the Auckland CBD, then you would of heard of Moustache. This small joint caters to delicious cookies that are baked freshly daily and tasty beverages. Though it is rather small, with seating being limited, the interior decor is adorable.

There is a selection of freshly baked cookies displayed in big glass jar that was soft and chewy. The come up with interesting creations now and them - so look out for that. Cheap and affordable for people needing a sugar fix or a sweet tooth that just love cookies, be warn, they are rather sweet but of so delicious.

Staff are helpful and friendly. Quick service. Awesome place :)

Really cute and quirky cookie place with a huge personality! Lots of little quirks and great novelty. It's very cute and they always do little campaigns that benefit the community. Follow them on fb, they're very cute!

The cookies are soft and warm and everything is really yummy but i think it's quite expensive? $4 for one cookie? It's a pretty gourmet cookie but that is one thing that I don't like. Also no sitting places since the store is quite small :(

But must get at least once to say you've experienced the urban legend that is moustache milk and cookie bar :)

Who knew that a little cookie shop could become so popular?! But seriously, there is good reason that Moustache is always packed with people: they make amazing cookies that will rival any you'd find in a bakery... or even from your grandmother's oven.

Crisp on the edges, soft and buttery in the middle, and laden with large chunks of Whittaker's chocolate, yeah, I think I've found my chocolate chip cookie nirvana. If you're as big a cookie monster as me, then you absolutely have to try Moustache out. And it's not called a "Milk and Cookie Bar" for no reason - don't forget your good ol' Dunking Milk (take your pick from plain, chocolate and strawberry) to wash it all down! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and milkshakes make up the rest of their simple menu.

Decked out with vintage milk bottles and milk crates, and featuring a chalkboard wall with an entirely hand-written menu, the interior of Moustache very much has an old-school, nostalgic ambience - unpretentious and cosy.

I'd love to stay and add more to this review, but I really moustache!

Moustache Milk and Cookie bar is a gem in mid town, that if you haven’t yet discovered it is definitely worth checking out.

They make the most amazing cookies, of various flavours, some of my favourites are chocolate chunk, nutella, snickers and white chocolate macademia. The cookies are made with only the best ingredients, including cage free eggs, NZ butter, Dutch cocoa and Whittakers chocolate.

They make them throughout the day so often you get one which is still warm from the oven, which means the flavouring is soft and gooey, so good. To accompany your cookies they also sell milk, milkshakes and coffee.

Head to 12 Wellesley St West just up from the Civic, they are open 7 days from 10.30am to 10pm Wed-Sat and through to 6pm Sun-Tues.

You'd be hard-pressed to find someone that hasn't heard of Moustache by now. It is, and probably will remain for a long time the talk of town - thanks to their outrageously creative Cookies of the Week (like the Burger, Carrot Cake, Mallowpuffception, Pineapple Lumpception). The shop was started by a 21 year old who is ambitious and extremely passionate - she's honestly a true inspiration to all. Their cookies are baked fresh on-site everyday. It's amazing how the tiny little kitchen can churn out so many cookies - Aucklanders have quickly evolved into Cookie Monsters. They're soft, chewy, larger than your typical cookie, and very sweet. Being allergic to chocolate I can't find as much joy as others in this cookie shop. It's brilliant for buying and gifting away to friends but I myself am left with mainly the cinnamon cookie. This cookie is best warm and offers a little crunch with the sugar sprinkled on top. It's too sweet in my opinion but if you've got a sweet tooth this shop is great for you.

Note: they've now launched the highly anticipated online cookie store so you can shop the cookies (save the wait in line) and have them delivered to your door!

After all the hype I finally got to try one of those amazing giant mallow puff's that I've seen all over facebook. It did not disappoint. Absolutely yum.

I was a bit gutted that they have decided to serve them only as halves now due to demand as it's now $6.00 to buy a whole one. For what it's worth though, that's probably a blessing because too many of those bad boys will break my belt in no time!

Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar is my boyfriend and I's go-to-place for an after uni treat!

While all the flavours are super yummy, my favourite is the understated cinnamon (tastes like Easter) with the black forest coming in a close second. The service here is great and Deanna is always smiley and friendly.

With so many businesses competing on price and forsaking quality, I think Moustache's cookies are very reasonably priced for the high end product that it is. I'll definitely be back :)

Having caught wind of this place via Facebook, we made a special trip up from Waiuku just to check this place out - and it didn't disappoint!

I don't usually write reviews on places, but I like that the owner takes the time to read them, so here is some constructive feedback:

In short; the cookies were great. We tried 3 different flavours. They were not "dry, bland, flavourless or overpriced" as some reviews on here state. The texture was beautiful and they tasted wholesome and home-baked. The pricing seems appropriate so long as you are making profit. When you consider cafe prices, $3.50 for a cookie would be about standard. Keep it up!

The appeal of the hot chocolate was better than the actual hot chocolate itself. I like the idea of the chocolate-milk method, but milk and chocolate separate when combined like this.

(side note to owners): Schoc in Wellington used to do a good one where they used powdered chocolate and then put a square of their flavoured chocolate in the bottom of the cup. It came with a steel spoon/straw so that you could drink the melted chocolate. I much prefered this style personally and think it would improve the drink a lot.

The venue looks awesome; though yes, it is too small (and I felt "cramped" as opposed to "cosy"). It was quite busy when we were there. However, being that it is in the center of the city and the business has been started from scratch, people going there and enjoying the cookies is the only thing that will help it grow.

So don't let the reviews on here hold you back - head on down and enjoy a delicious cookie and a glass of milk!

I think this place is a little overrated. Sure, the cookies look incredibly yummy, but in reality they are quite mediocre: bland and on the dry side, especially for the price. For $3.50 I can bake a dozen amazing cookies at home.
However there was one particular cookie that stood out more - the Red Velvet one, which I suppose was the Valentine's Day special. It was quite nice.

I've been here on quite a few occasions and had the cookies. I know people say they are a bit expensive ($3.50), but these cookies are the best I've ever had, and i think they are worth the $3.50 (unless you want to have multiple cookies in a day, everyday).

They are always VERY fresh, and the oreo marshmallow one is my favourite. Considering that if you go to a cafe, you could be paying up to $4 for a cookie that has been in a jar for months, I don't see a problem with the price.

The milkshakes are a bit bland though, and I do think they are a bit too expensive. The flavours on the menu sound really great and tempting, but the taste just isn't really there.

But all in all I think if you are in the area and just want a little treat this is the best place to go, much much better than mrs higgins :D

Decided to pay a visit after hearing all the hype and having my interest piqued from the boom in boutique bakeries with cupcakes and the like. Obviously the decor is adorable and makes you feel like you're in New York and not dinghy Wellesley Street, it's worth a visit just to check out the fun use of milk bottles as interiors.

I guess I didn't visit earlier because I'm not really a sweet tooth to begin with but it's in a convenient location so I wandered in and bought a chocolate and marshmallow cookie. Surprisingly it wasn't sweet at all, and I don't eat sweet things very often so it's not like I'm desensitized to sugar or anything.. however I'm not entirely sure whether that's a fault or a plus? I think they cut down the sugar in the cookie batter because the marshmallows were in there but the cookie part was almost entirely flavorless, only a vague hint of cocoa. I think it was a good idea to balance out the sugar but a cookie can be chocolatey without being sweet. The experience was sort of like I was eating a crunchy marshmallow.

I really like that the owner reads the reviews on here and interacts with her customers, there is something very sincere and admirable about that. The concept of this place is super cute and it seems most people love it. I still haven't tried their beverages so I'll come back soon for those and another cookie.

I absolutely love everything about Moustache Milk &amp; Cookie Bar. I am obsessed with the snickers cookies, the cinnamon cookies... you know what, I could go on.

I adore the salted caramel milkshake, and I love that their mochas are made with REAL chocolate - and it's your choice or white, milk, or dark chocolate. YUM. No syrups or powders here, only the real deal! I have heard amazing things about the nutella and cookies &amp; cream milkshakes, though I am itching to taste the peppermint aero milkshake - OMG.

For people who comment that Mrs Higgins &amp; Subways Cookies are cheaper... obviously they're not using Whittakers chocolate in their cookies, Green Valley milk, quality butter, flour, etc. And! They sell by far the best gluten free cookies I have ever tasted.

The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and care about the product and their customers. The owner is super passionate and simply a wonderful person, I love her drive and determination to put out the best tasting, freshest cookies around.

Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Great concept, great decor, great location. However, agree with the previous reviewers that the food just wasn't exceptional enough to justify the price. I tried the salted caramel milkshake and peanut butter milkshake ($7.50 each) - both were milky and sugary and didn't have the flavour explosions that you can find, say, in Wellington's Fidel or Sweet Mother's Kitchen. Equally, the cookies looked amazing and I was tempted by the oreo and marshmallow cookie and the Snickers cookie ($3.50 each, down from $4 each when this shop opened). They were nice and chewy, but to be honest, I prefer Mrs. Higgin's cookies down the road for less money. Also, as others have mentioned, there isn't really space for sitting in this "bar", unless the outside little table is free...

Was keen to support young people doing some good stuff, so was really excited to visit. I turned up, the decor was awesome, the place is really well put together, except for the "bar" bit? Where was it? Nowhere. Atmosphere was a little lacking. The music was very very quiet over the fact that we were all squished in there like canned bananas. I expected some kind of cookie aroma to lead me there, but no aroma, no coffee scents either.

I bought 2 cookies, one cinnamon and one choc marshmallow and a Nutella milkshake. Price, not too bad for a boutiquey place, as long as they were mind explodingly good. Unfortunately the cookies weren't very good - looked awesome, taste not so awesome. I mean, great imaginative flavours, but they were a little average for the price. Sorry to say, Subway does better cookies. The novelty of Mrs Higgins down the road is that they're hot and smell awesome, not just some baking in a jar as well as being scrumptious. Milkshake, a little on the average side which was a let down.

I feel like you guys have relied a little too much on the kitschy aesthetics to sell the product rather than the actual atmosphere and quality of the goods. Otherwise, friendly people behind the counter.

Was pretty excited to go there when i found out about it.

However the cookies were very over priced and were not kept in a warmer or anything. The 4 cookies I got tasted average and weren’t warm or soft really. Much prefer Higgins or subway.

The milk shake was good, however again very expensive.

The dunking milk was just poured out of a milk container, no authentic milk jar or anything which was disappointing.

The worst part I think is the location. It’s silly to call something a 'bar' when it has practically 2 seats to sit in, so you pretty much have to take away... which isn’t good for wanting to dunk biscuits..

Overall, definitely not up to expectation. Will not be going there again. :(

After seeing an article in Metro about Moustache I thought I would try them out. I usually buy Mrs Higgins which I cannot fault. At Moustache there were only 6 varieties and the two I bought were White Macadamia and M&amp;M. I have to say that I did not think they looked as good and felt that the texture was also not as good as Mrs Higgins and at $4 each found them a bit pricey. So sorry Moustache I will be going back to Mrs Higgins as they are always consistently good and love the variety.

Was excited about the cookies - until I saw the price $4...
Like another customer mentioned, subway cookies you can get for way less. Even Ma Higgin cookies are cheaper.

Not enough flavour in the Nutella one

Friend purchased strawberry milk for $1.5 - which tasted like Primo... Definitely need to review the price even if trying to break even and even if it's starting out. Because the scary thing for customers is that the price would only go up from now on... and it would be madness paying anything more than $4 for a cookie.

Decided to try this place out amid much fanfare and hype, and I must say my personal experience was an ambivalent one. Their flagship items, the cookies themselves, are excellent. Generous sizes and a decent range (although this will hopefully be expanded upon in future). Soft, chewy, the perfect texture and taste, they simply cannot be faulted. Their drinks on the other hand are appalling and severely limit my overall rating for this place. The milkshakes are tasteless and overpriced, and the less said about the hot chocolate, the better. One of the worst I've ever had actually, and I've drank a lot of hot choco in my time. Prices in general are a bit on the steep side (I know the cookies are large but $4 is quite a bit, compared to competitors' offerings).

All in all, a great store and concept that is likely to become a hit and grow into the future. The drinks problem needs to be sorted out, but I am sure they can handle that.

Was very excited to try this milk and cookie bar, drove a long way especially for it. The range of cookies was very poor, there were only 3 or 4 choices, and all the popular yummy flavours were sold out at only 2pm?? The service was poor in that the lovely lady couldn't remember who ordered what, and misplaced some milkshakes, and gave them to the wrong people. Our milkshakes were relatively tasteless. Although they were a perfect texture, and really cold :). Our friend gets coffee everyday, and he said the coffee was disgusting, one of the worst hes ever had. My boyfriend didn't even bother buying a milkshake because they were ridiculously expensive at $7.50 for a smallish cup. Cookies were $4 each, which is expensive however they were quite big and tasty, in saying that Subway cookies are almost the same size, are only $2.60 and also tasty. The place was cramped, probably why the lady was so confused as to who ordered what, as people had to stand outside to wait for their order. There were only 4 bench stools to sit in, so even if we did want to sit down and enjoy dunking cookies in milk. we couldn't!

Better than anything I've had from Miss Higgens or Cookie Time. They look and taste amazing with a real homemade feel. Great location being just next to my bus stop ;) This is definitely my new regular coffee and treat shop.
