New York style cookies arrive in Mayfield
Love anything sweet loaded with flavour? You best get moving and experience the delectable New York-style loaded cookies now available at Marshall & Daughters in Mayfield.
Brought to you by Newcastle born and bred couple, Nathan and Mel, Marshall & Daughters was a creation born from the pandemic and has surprisingly blossomed since their inception in May 2021.
With a background in the travel industry, the local couple were twiddling their thumbs come the first lockdowns after having to halt operations with their travel company, Soundmart Tours. Being big lovers of the iconic New York-style loaded cookies and having been baking them for friends and family since 2008, the idea for Marshall & Daughters started brewing.
“When pandemic hit, we had to hibernate and we couldn’t operate our travel business so we thought, what are we going to do? Then we just thought, why not try to sell these cookies? That’s where the idea came from.
“We needed to pivot and do something else. We initially started as just something positive to do really because we were spending so much time at home. We started making them with the girls, and one day decided to make a website and social media pages and start selling them online,” Nathan shared.
Kicking off online in May last year, the business quickly took off with orders quickly being placed from Melbourne, Brisbane, and even Darwin.
“We never expected it to get as big as it has. We literally were just looking for something positive to do during the pandemic.”
Quickly outgrowing their at-home baking station, the couple, alongside their two daughters decided it was time to move Marshall & Daughters into a dedicated baking spot. Moving into 160 Maitland Road in Mayfield it was a no-brainer to bring in another offering; coffee of course!
“Eventually we decided to put coffee on as well because coffee and cookies obviously go hand in hand.”
Officially opening as a cookie and coffee joint in November last year, the local foodie spot has grown in popularity like you wouldn’t believe. Step on inside and you’re greeted with fun, funky vibes, and cookie flavours sure to get you salivating.
“With our cabinet, we rotate the flavours every day. We do a few standard ones like the classic New York Choc Chip which is available every day. The rest we pretty much rotate.”
Flavours are constantly changing but amongst some of the range are Loaded Biscoff, New York Choc Chip, Brooklyn Brownie, M&M Choc Chip, Oreo Choc Chip, Slimer, Caramilk Choc Chip, Nutella Bomb, Loaded S’Mores, Walnut Choc Chip, and so many more. To view the full range, click here.
Whilst each cookie is created with different flavour profiles, you can rest assured knowing you’ll still get to experience an authentic NYC style loaded cookie; these guys are the Newcastle-based cookie specialists!
In addition to their cookies, you can also get your hands on and your mouths around a handful of savoury goods with bagels supplied by Papa’s Bagel Bar as well as coffee with beans from Glitch Coffee Roasters.
“Because the cookies are so good, we wanted to make sure the coffee was just as good. So, we work with Glitch who are also based here in Mayfield. I love their coffee so much, so it was a no brainer. We chatted to them and have created our own blend.”
The name is a nod to the couple’s memories of creating their signature loaded cookies, which the recipe has been perfected alongside their two daughters, Phoenix and Peyton.
“Our two daughters have always loved our cookies and throughout their childhood, we have spent countless hours making them together as a family in numerous different forms, perfecting the recipe through trial and error and enjoying them together.
“This is why when it was time to choose a name, we thought it only right that we choose the name Marshall & Daughters as they have been such an important part of the process.”
