many of the cookies are shortbreads, they don't have a lot of flavor, but are pretty pricey. Their famous brown butter cookie is

My favorite is the original brown butter cookie. The others are good, but this is the best. I'm pretty fussy about cookies as I grew up on homemade.

Cookies are good but not great. They do a terrific business so apparently there are lots of folks that love them. They are small, which is ok, but overpriced. They do hand out small pieces so you may sample their flavors. You'll have to decide if they are worth the price and if the flavors suit you palette.

Not understanding what the excitement is about these cookies. They are tiny and overpriced. I can get better tasting cookies at the grocery store. The espresso cookie was so bad I spit it out. I am a baker and cake decorator and I would be embarrassed to sell a product this bad. Don't waste your time.

Cookies are good. Not cheap - probably due to butter, no? Peanut butter cookie was disappoiinting. Didn't taste that different. Need more peanut butter and maybe a few peanuts mixed in.

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 aficionado....

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
