WILLIAMSBURG-A new cookie shop catering to college students is headed to Williamsburg.

Insomnia Cookies will open soon at 100 College Row in Midtown Row. An exact opening date has not yet been announced. The new business is applying for signage for their new storefront through the City of Williamsburg’s Architectural Review Board. The Board meets on Tuesday, November 23.

Insomnia Cookies specializes in a variety of cookies and other treats, which are available for delivery late into the night. Seth Berkowitz started the company in 2003 while he was a student at the University of Pennsylvania.

In addition to cookies, Insomnia Cookies also serves or will deliver cookie cakes, brownies, ice cream and ice cream sandwiches, and cold milk. The shop is typically open from 10am to 3am for delivery.

Insomnia Cookies has more than 100 locations. There are currently five other locations in Virginia, including one in Norfolk and one in Richmond.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
