Treat to Try: Lion Cub’s Cookies

Lion’s Paw Cookies That’s not it. Lion’s Cub Cookies Nope. Lion Cub’s Cookies THAT’S IT! That’s the ticket. Singular lion, possessive cub, many cookies. On a personal level, the baker’s name has been challenging. Its house cookies are large and truly mounded, like big predator paws.

Hilliard isn’t typically viewed as a walkable community, but its downtown defies those expectations. There’s crosswalks, sidewalks, and a healthy selection of windows and stores to cruise on foot. Within this zone, you’ll also find the Center Street Market, a sprawling, one-story building that holds a bevy of smaller operations.  And among those operations is a […]
