Although this review is under restaurants, the Brown Butter Cookie Company is just that, a cookie company. That being said, WOW, what great cookies. They have their own unique recipes for a variety of cookies. Most are flavored with sea salt which adds to the flavor.

I was expecting a counter filled with tons of different cookies like chocolate chip. These arent cookies...

As you walk in the door, a worker immediately asks you if you would like a cookie sample. Once you've tried a sample, you can't help but buy some. We... More

Located across the beach, usually has a line out the door. They do provide samples to try before purchase. Would highly recommend there Honey Cookies. They are great! Did not care for there flagship brown butter cookies as much. they were pretty salty.

After a sample, we bought a "tower" w/ 6 different types of cookies. We felt a bit rushed to buy. Cookies were good, not great. They are pricey- we would probably skip next time.

Great shop right on the main drag and those Brown Butter Sea Salt cookies are to die for. At $13 a bag, they are not a value, but they sure are delicious.

It was very good but kind of pricy. We paid 25 dollars for a small bag of cookies but we would get it again.
