Best cookies EVER!!!

These cookies are the epitome of homemade! My family and I have tried ALL of them.. And they are ALL amazing! Chewy, buttery, just enough sweet, just enough salt... And no matter how many you eat- you want more!!

Found this place by accident a year ago while driving down Highway 1. Had stopped in Cayucos so my dog could run on the beach and happened to notice the Brown Butter Cookie Company. Decided to stop in and see what it offered. I'm sure glad I did. You walk in to a display case of cookies. Behind the display... More

Open the door and smell the freshly baked cookies. Watch the team of bakers and makers, enjoy a sample (or two, or even three) as you read the story of this family owned and operated small cookie business. If you are along the Central Coast of CA and get a chance, do go to the Cayucos or Paso Robles shops... More

Although Brown Butter Cookie Company has gluten free cookies on their varied cookie menu, a main ingredient is sugar. So, if you have sensitivity to sugar or a diabetic buy some for your family or friends. They are unbelievably delicious.

Ok, I do not usually have a sweet tooth and I have never been through Cayucos, however, this is definitley worth the stop. They have nice coffee, and wonderful cookies. The lemon, cocoa, cocoa-mint, and original!! Really, a nice treat!

This place has really good cookies. Now, these are not your everyday cookie. They are very rich in taste and price, but like I said before, these are not the kind you eat everyday. I prefer the originals to all the rest. Although I was there in the Fall, and they had a Spice cookie that was really good.

Clean, quaint little shop in Cayucos. Had a sample of a couple of their delicious cookies and had to buy a box of the originals! Delish! Like shortbread. Friendly staff. Definitely stop there if you visiting or travelling through!

Cayucos is very proud of the Brown Butter Cookie Company. The owners are two lovely hardworking sisters and their cookies are legendary
