Captain Cookie & the Milk Man will be taking orders soon on Astor Place

From the EVG tipline: An outpost of Captain Cookie & the Milk Man is opening on Broadway at Astor Place — next door to the Famous Cozy Soup 'n' Burger.

The Washinton, D.C.-based business "is a mobile bakery and dairy bar serving fresh-baked cookies, local milk, and made-to-order ice cream sandwiches." 

Per the Captain's Facebook page: "In addition to the greatest chocolate chip cookie in the world, Captain Cookie serves flavors like Ginger Molasses, Peanut Butter, Cardamom Snickerdoodle, Oatmeal Raisin, Cocoa Cayenne Espresso, Pumpkin Muffaroons, and more! Plus the excellent Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie!" 

The Astor Place location is opening tomorrow.

A rep for the Captain shared this info:
The new Captain Cookie is operated by Neil Hershman, a 27-year-old entrepreneur who is no stranger to the NYC food scene. Hershman successfully runs seven other dessert stores throughout New York, including his debut last year of the city's first Dippin' Dots store. A frequent customer of Captain Cookie during his college days in Washington, D.C., Hershman and his friends often reminisce about the craveable late-night, warm cookies. Realizing nothing could compare to Captain Cookie's quality and service, Hershman says introducing the brand to New York City is a no-brainer. He is currently building an additional Captain Cookie store in Times Square that's expected to open this summer.

The business has now opened and accepting orders! Not available online yet though. Been waiting for years for a location to open up since trying the first time in D.C
