The new Nestle Tollhouse Cafe by Chip and Baskin-Robbins is now open!

Nestle Tollhouse Cafe by Chip | 8918 W 21st St N., Wichita KS 67205

 Their store is located on the east side of the Warren Theater parking lot in a small strip mall.

Recently I visited the new Tollhouse Cafe and Baskin-Robbins and enjoyed some of their delicious cookies!   They have a wonderful selection of TollHouse Cookies, including the individual cookies and the “bigger” cookies (perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or any other celebration).  Their staff is friendly and helpful in picking out your selection.   Their cookies are fresh and delicious!
