It has been three days since I made my stop at the Brown Butter Cookie Company. I still have this nagging feeling that I got suckered by this place just as bad as one of those old roadside attractions with the two-headed chicken that plays basketball. Yes, their signature cookies are very tasty, it's always nice to get food with... More

They are a sort of crumbly, moist shortbread type bickie/cookie and made in a small factory cum shop in Cayucos. As you enter the shop there is a counter (with free samples, can it... More

Lime coconut, need I say more, okay, how about cocoa mint, traditional, or just one of everything please. We go out of our way to stop by Brown Butter and I think it may be one of my favorite reasons to head for this part of California. See you soon (the next chance I get)!

I wish I would have opened a cookie store where people pay 11.00 for about 4 cookies. Cookies are good , but come on, what a profit machine they have going. Anyway, not worth it at least to me.

Best Cookie place ever (besides grandma's)... WE have a taco at Ruddell's and then head to the Brown Butter Cookie Company for a token cookie after our bike ride. Cookies are delicious- the original, the new spice, the almond, then oatmeal, and choc chip, and pb. There's many to choose from and THEY SHIP ANYWHERE> So must go!

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!
