These cookies are addicting!

Warning - these cookies are addicting! This is a must-do stop in Cayucos. The sweet/sea salt sprinkled cookies are delicious and come in a variety of flavors - including some gluten free. I like the original the best, but all are good. I always have to bring back bags of these to my friends... read more

I have always loved the original flavors of the Brown butter cookies the best...not cheap, but worth every penny as a special treat.

I have been going to the Brown Butter Cookie Company for years now, and I never get tired of them. My wife and kids demand that we make it our first stop when we get to Cayucos. Even though I live in SoCal and I'm not a local (yet), the owners Christa and Traci remember me like I was one... More

I love the women who offer these cookies because everything they do is tasteful and pleasing on many levels. I have known them for 7 or 8 years and have been amazed by what they have done with their cookie business. It used to make me think of a Martha Martha Stewart sweat- shop…wholesome women sitting at a tall table... More

Probably most famous food in Cayucos. Friends insisted we stop there -- enjoyed but not out of the world cookies. Many gluten free options.

Seriously, this is a must stop on your way through CA-1. They are all hand made, tasty and salty. Don't be shy and ask for a sample if you're having a hard time deciding which flavor to pick, or just pick them all!

These are some of the best store-bought cookies I've ever eaten. Sure, they're pricy but they're soooo worth it. Get a free sample -- or four!! -- to help figure out which flavor you want to buy. Or buy the first bag you see; you'll love whatever flavor it is. I think I've tried them all and I have yet... More
