Bennett St Dairy is a Bondi-based cafe serving farm-to-plate breakfasts and lunches that celebrate fresh, seasonal produce. It is also home to the famous Bennett St giant choc-chip cookie.
When Covid hit in 2020, in an effort to offload excess stock due to coronavirus, co-owner James Meek and his business partner Cliff Baskin put a post on Instagram saying they had a bunch of cookie dough for sale. One hundred kilos of dough sold in two hours, and thus their business model was transformed. This is no understatement, as they now sell a tonne of cookie dough a week. You can now find them at Woolworths, Coles, and their own website. They even deliver in Sydney and Melbourne (FREE delivery for orders over $45!). Check here for a store near you.
