Saw the billboard while driving the PCH and knew we wanted to stop. SO GLAD we did!! Free samples of their signature cookie get you in but I promise you won't leave empty handed. We bought the 'Tower' of cookies that includes several flavors like chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and the signature... read more

I watched this little cookie company grow from a small location in Cayucos to a sizable one with their melt in your mouth shortbread cookies of many delicious flavors. They have also added gluten-free cookies in 2 flavors, and are certified gluten free, and tested well with my Celiac daughter. Our particular favorite is the gluten-free chocolate mint. The store...

This is a tourist oriented shop. That said, it is very efficient in order to handle the hordes that descend on the little town every summer. The cookies are good- expensively priced like a gift so they're a good thing to bring home to the dog sitter or whomever left at home. Some of our group didn't care for their... More

If you are in Cayucos you have to go to the Brown Butter Cookie Company. The original cookies are the best. I tried the lemon poppyseed this time and really liked them too. There honey cookies are good too....heck they are all good!

awesome cookies... a bit on the sweet side but if you can the name of the cookie company, you should know what to expect. I liked the almond, citrus, and cocoa flavor cookies. I am sure they are full of calories but they are really quite delicious. The cookies are bite sized. the prices for the bags range from $7... More

I found the brown butter sea salt cookies (the ones they are famous for) too crumbly and salty. Also pretty pricey. However, the traditional cookies were delicious!! I'm still craving the lemon sugar one!
