The positive fun atmosphere in this shop is contagious. Workers broke into singing and dancing to a song while hand rolling cookies while we were there. And the bonus to all of this happiness? the cookies are melt in your mouth delicious!

They offer several types of unique, excellent cookies. Sampel them and you'll love them! They moved to a current new, larger location not long ago.

Very rich buttery cookies in many choices. Cookies are being made while you watch. Very friendly, cute place. A must stop when you are in Cayucos.

Strong flavors-good. Texture is like eating brown sugar from a box. Nice service that offer samples galore, but it's not a cookie for me.

Go in and try the various samples. Melt in your mouth good! Our favorite was the original, with the mint chocolate coming in second place! Great sample packets to take home to share with friends.

The cookies taste good, but are pricey. Selection of differemt flavors is wide. It is worth trying out one time.

There isn't too much to do in Cayucos, but this is the highlight for many visitors to the town. The cookies are very good, and you will be amazed how many folks are in back making these little gems.

Delicious flavor and a great sugar fix. The Original was like shortbread but better. The Expresso caught my attention. Not for the diabetic. Well worth visiting.

The cookies cost an arm and a leg. That said, they are a subtle but complicated cookie best savored by an adult. The brown butter sea salt is the only one we tried and we walked out with an extremely overpriced bag of them. They were a vacation treat. I couldn't justify them on a regular basis. Lol!
