... Three years ago, Andrew Gonzalez, 24, thought it would be a good idea to drop out of Miami-Dade College and focus on delivering fresh-made cookies to the people in west Miami-Dade in the wee hours of the night, between 7 p.m. and 2 a.m.The response was so great, he literally had a mental breakdown.


Since then, he has figured out how to bake more than 1,200 cookies, fresh to order, every night and deliver them warm to expectant cookie monsters throughout Night Owl’s 10-mile delivery area.

Miami is clearly hungry for cookies with flavors like double-stuffed Oreos, Nutella, maple-bacon and Ave Maria, made with guava preserves, traditional Cuban Maria biscuits and cream cheese frosting. Gonzalez has never advertised. With more than 35,000 followers, Night Owl has become a word-of-mouth social media sensation.
