Cookies to die for

Stopped by after a heads up from a friend who saw I was traveling in the area. Incredible butter cookies with a touch of sea salt, albeit a bit pricey for normal cookie consumption. I will have to restrain myself from eating a dozen at a whack. Great staff and recommended for the sweets... read more

The tiny cookies sell for $1 each - they are about the size of a large walnut. They taste OK, a little too sweet, they go OK with tea. Fun to buy perhaps while you are in Cayucos since there is so little else to do there - unless you surf. Do you surf?

They have a very unique cookie of their own invention. It's kinda like a molasses short bread. It's a good thing we were only in town a couple days, you can eat them in like popcorn

The cookies are good but way overpriced. There is a lot of variety here so you're bound to find a flavor you'll like. It is worth doing once.

The staff is very friendly and they seemed very knowledgeable about their products. They offered us samples of their delicious cookies, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Their cookies are just the right size for a little indulgence without feeling guilty. There is a nice variety of flavors. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

As a local I love bringing friends here. The staff is friendly and has samples to share. The cookies are not cheap but worth it. We take them as gifts for friends also. The building is also lovely.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Prices are what you would expect. Cookies were tasty, especially the snickerdoodles.

Read about this place in a AAA magazine and have stopped many times since. You can watch them make cookies and try a few samples. Cookies are available packaged in groups or you can buy them individually. If you go early, take advantage of the day old cookies for a lower price. They are still fresh & only one day... More
