Cookies Crimes is a Mom and Pop cookie and ice cream café, local to Lethbridge Alberta. We are an excellent place to take your family out for a treat. You can expect to find a rotating menu of cookies and ice cream, all made from scratch. We are not some corporate chain - we are down-to-earth folks who just want to make the world a happier place.
We are located in the heart of downtown Lethbridge. We are across the street from Festival Square, the Telegraph Taphouse, and The Gate Church. Our address is 305 6 Street South
Riley and Diana Walburger. We're a real mom and pop, raising our family here in Lethbridge. At any given time, at least one of us is probably in our store. So if you want to speak to us, just ask!
We are still figuring out the best hours for the hustle and bustle of downtown Lethbridge. For our most current hours, please refer to the footer of this webpage. If you have a suggestion about our hours, please reach out to us on Twitter or Instagram.
Our cookies are inspired by New York, where giant cookies are king. We produce all of our cookies in-store from locally-sourced ingredients. We rotate a variety of 6 different kinds of cookies at any time, baked in small batches. We believe cookies are best when fresh from the oven, so you can always order a cookie "hot" if you are willing to wait 15 minutes.
We produce our ice cream fresh from the raw ingredients. No mixes, powders, or mass-produced malarky. Our product is considered premium ice cream, targeting 14-16% milkfat with minimal overrun. This means the ice cream is much richer and flavorful than what you can get from the grocery store. And, unlike the profit-driven franchises out there, we sparingly use flavor extracts in favor of authentic flavoring. For example, Strawberry Ice Cream is so much better when it's made from real fruit! We think you'll agree.
That's not a question. But it is unfortunate! We won't be offering lactose-free ice cream but we think our still-warm-from-the-oven cookies will more than compensate for that! Also, check out for our sorbet.
Nearly all of our cookies are made with butter and/or eggs, so if you are a strictly observing vegetarian we'd advise you ask before you buy. We try our best to have a vegetarian option in our ice cream dipping cabinet - usually an Italian ice or a sorbet. Our vegetarian options will be labeled in-store, but please engage our ice cream "slingers" and they can help you find the right fit for your dietary needs.
We've had some success converting our cookies to gluten-free. We are doing our best to have a few cookie options available all the time. Many of our ice creams are gluten-free, as long as you skip the waffle cone! Don't be afraid to ask before you buy!
We have a full team right now, but will gladly accept your resume.
It depends on the position. Part-time employees start at $17/hr
We offer complete pay transparency between our employees. That includes what we, the owners, earn too.
Unfortunately, not at this time.
This would be the ideal job for someone who enjoys spreading a little joy in the world. Going out and getting ice cream (or cookies!) with the family is a universally positive thing, and it's energizing to be a part of that. As a mom and pop operation, you can expect a more flexible work arrangement - if you're a good, genuine worker, we'll accommodate your needs as best as we can. For our full-time employees, you also get to learn the inner workings of making ice cream and cookies.
Balance in all things, we give our employees a good tasting of all of our new products so they can be truthful when customers have a question. You'll get a free cookie every shift and some discounts on our product too.
