Love these cookies

Expensive??? Yes! Yummy??? you bet! Nice selection of small round cookies (many gluten free options). For me, the cocco cookies have the best texture and flavor, so I would recommend them the most... but all the cookies from here are really good!

We just needed a lunch stop and break on our trip down highway 1, and stopped in for a cookie and were not disappointed! When you walk in the store, they offer you a taste of every type of cookie on sale, and these cookies are just amazing. We wanted to buy almost every flavor! We ended up buying the... More

This is a bakery, not a restaurant. We bought a prepackaged bag of the shortbread style brown butter cookies which I love. We also bought six Chocolate Chip large size cookies, husbands choice. We ate 2 cookies in the car even though we just had breakfast. I thought the price was comparable to other bakery cookies. I have made brown... More

You can't beat the location and I'd say it'd be hard to beat the cookie. A wide variety of flavors all with tasty sea salt... a unique take on the cookie for sure. You must give it a try... stop in for free samples and you will end up buying a bag or more!

Tasty but very expensive. The cookies are just flavored and salted short cookies. They are definitely over priced.

Some of the best cookies I've ever had. Delicious. The chocolate is my favorite. Locations in Cayugas and Paso Robles. Been to both

We had to stop driving through for a snack. My husband actually ran in and got a few bags, original, chocolate mint, bourbon and espresso. All were really good, I love the saltiness of the crisp cookie. I'm usually a soft warm cookie girl but these were incredible! Each bag of cookies had 4 and our bill was $15.

Loved the idea of a cookie company and was intrigued by the "brown butter" in the title, so I went in. The packaging is pretty, the women working behind the counter were, too, but the samples I tried were not thrilling. I wound up buying regular cookies and although they were pretty, they weren't anything to write home about.

Only one of us eats sweets and the cookies were $2.50 each (wow), so we only bought 5, one of each flavor (not peanut butter). After some urging I finally had a small bite of each one and although they were good, they were a bit too sugary for me. BUT the lemon cookie (which I didn't want to buy)... More

I hadn't heard of the cookie company before. Trying a few samples was fun but I fell for the original! A must visit place in the town of Paso Robles.
