When Tiffany Taylor and Leon Chen were college sophomores at the University of Texas, she stood him up for a date and delivered hot-from-the-oven cookies to apologize.
Leon convinced Tiff to turn her cookies into a business, and Tiff’s Treats was born.
The company started as small as you can get, with the two of them taking orders on a cell phone and baking cookies in the oven at Leon’s apartment. In 2000, Tiff’s Treats expanded into a real kitchen on the Drag across from UT, sharing a space with Spudnik, a potato restaurant. In 2003, they moved into their own stand-alone location—a converted 1940’s bungalow at MLK & Nueces that still serves as their Central Austin location servicing UT and downtown.
They’ve always tried to keep their menu small, to keep their dough fresh and ensure they never run out of your favorite flavors. Of course, they’ve got ice cream and brownies, as well as a few other delicious delights. Please stop by and try one of their delicious treats (MENU)!
