Byrd Famous Cookies

Indulge in Savannah made tasty treats & wine

In 1924, Benjamin Tillman Byrd, Sr. began baking small batches of cookies from his bakery in Savannah, Georgia, packing them in wooden crates, and personally delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford. The cookies were soon christened “Byrd’s Famous Cookies” and steadily gained popularity not only locally, but also among visitors who discovered the delicious confections while visiting Savannah.

Now the fourth and fifth generations of the family run the company. Celebrating over 95 years of baking, Byrd’s recipe for success includes its continued tradition of hard work, superior quality, and unsurpassed customer service. They continue to bake in small batches to deliver the famous cookies their customers adore, producing up to 3 million cookies a day.

As you make your way through our space and take in the surroundings, you will begin to understand the abundance of unparalleled aspects of Perry Lane. From the artwork that is displayed along our walls, to the collectables that rest upon our shelves, each item is engrained with its own unique story. Adelaide Harcourt, the inspiration of all things Perry Lane, believes these mementos capture a piece of the world at large, forming connections between the artist, the location it was made in, and the person who was moved enough to take it home. We are pleased to welcome you to our live-in gallery.
