Cookies--Way, way tasty cookies! If I'm gonna get fat, if I'm gonna have high cholesterol...I wanna hold brown butter cookies responsible! Expensive: But these cookies are the reason to eat cookies! Chocolate chunk, snickerdoodle and coconut-lime: always get some of each. Friendly and quick service.

The cookies are home made in front of you and the coffee is great! The wafting aroma is breath taking...

Very quaint bakery, very good cookies. We liked the idea of samples freely given. I also liked the way the store was arranged, very old fashioned.

We stopped by here on our way out of town based on the place's history. In short... Meh.... The cookies were OK, just ok, nothing better than I would get at a local bakery. The prices were definitely for tourists. I like cookies, I am not a cookie aficionado, and frankly I am not sure an aficionado would find these... More

I spied this place on the main drag as I was waiting for my food to be delivered at Ruddell's Smokehouse on D Street. As a self-proclaimed "cookie monster", there was no choice but for me to run over and grab some samples. The employees are right behind the counter rolling cookie balls; they bake them in the back.

Absolutely love that there is such a viable business in this small town. I only ate one cookie - the waistline you know. But bought bags to take home to family and friends. The lone cookie I ate was scrumptious!

This place was just down the street form where we were staying for a week in Cayucos. Kept walking by and smelling the cookies baking and finally stopped in. It was worth it.

Of course you can get a variety for yourself. As we did, really love the snicker doodle and peanut butter cookies. Packaged nicely , great to give!

My favorite cookies of all time! Visiting friends who live in the area. Had to make the trip to cayucos. Sampled all the flavors, got 3 dozen. Coconut lime, citrus, and almond. Yum!!! Just a cute little place that makes a great product.

I don't get it. People rave about these so I was expecting something awesome. Instead, I tried a free sample of their famous recipe cookie and was not impressed at all. Just a basic shortbread (and LITTLE) cookie with no flavor. Someone seriously needs to open up a real cookie shop.
