The Insomnia Cookies location at 833 Wharton Street in Philadelphia features their “not-so-secret” cookie lab. This location is situated in the busy neighborhood that is also home to the two Philly Cheesesteak institutions – Pat’s and Geno’s.

The storefront looks small and unassuming, and at first it seems like a typical Insomnia Cookies location. However, a secret code muttered in the area of the bookcase will cause the bookcase to open, revealing a hallway.

Once inside the store, you’ll need the secret code to get into the cookie lab. This code can typically be found on the store’s Instagram stories, specifically the CookieLab by Insomnia Cookies account. The password changes from time to time.

Behind the Bookcase

After walking behind a bookcase, a short hallway will lead to the CookieLab. Inside, you’ll be able to order from the milkshake menu or choose cookies from the Insomnia Cookies CookieLab creations.
