Since the Brown Butter Cookie Company is right on the main road in Cayocos, you can't miss it and it sort of draws you in by the possibility of having a different cookie experience. It didn't disappoint. The cookies are about 1.5 inch in diameter and shaped like a large mushroom cap. Not being a cookie nibbler, they only offer... More

Simply the best cookies in the area. Heck maybe in the country. Their original brown butter cookie can't be beat. They also give you a sample bite when you enter. Additionally, they just opened a second store in Paso Robles, about 25 miles inland.

When in Cayucos or on your way up the Calif. Coast be sure to stop at this amazing cookie shop. The shop is super busy and includes the staff actually making the cookies on sight.

Had to make repeat trips to sample more flavors! The only thing that would make this place better was if they served coffee to go with their cookies.

I am so happy that Brown Butter has done so well. (Our first visit was in the little location in town.) One of my kids is gluten free and now our favorite cookie is the gluten free chocolate mint. Yum yum!

Excellent home made cookie shop! We can see them making the cookies. They hand-roll each cookie and finish it with a touch of sea salt. The cocoa one's are delicious.

Cookies--Way, way tasty cookies! If I'm gonna get fat, if I'm gonna have high cholesterol...I wanna hold brown butter cookies responsible! Expensive: But these cookies are the reason to eat cookies! Chocolate chunk, snickerdoodle and coconut-lime: always get some of each. Friendly and quick service.

The cookies are home made in front of you and the coffee is great! The wafting aroma is breath taking...

Very quaint bakery, very good cookies. We liked the idea of samples freely given. I also liked the way the store was arranged, very old fashioned.
