The Best Cookies

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

This place is as awesome as advertised. I mean, brown butter cookie company...They make cookies, and they do it good. It is a must to come in and at least sample some cookies, but I guarantee you will buy a cookie (or 6)

Pretty expensive cookies and the taste was very average! Great free samples and you could probably fill up on the samples! My expectations were very high, but both my. Wife and I felt that the cookies were just OK!

On a road trip up the California coast? Mark this on your map. It's the BBCC factory in the little surf town of Cayucos, started and run by two local young ladies of impeccable taste. Get plenty for the road!!!

A friend told me about this amazing place. Great cookies with an unusual taste that is delicious. The new location is great, more in the center of town. Friendly staff is great at handing out samples to entice customers. It works.

Since the Brown Butter Cookie Company is right on the main road in Cayocos, you can't miss it and it sort of draws you in by the possibility of having a different cookie experience. It didn't disappoint. The cookies are about 1.5 inch in diameter and shaped like a large mushroom cap. Not being a cookie nibbler, they only offer... More

Simply the best cookies in the area. Heck maybe in the country. Their original brown butter cookie can't be beat. They also give you a sample bite when you enter. Additionally, they just opened a second store in Paso Robles, about 25 miles inland.

When in Cayucos or on your way up the Calif. Coast be sure to stop at this amazing cookie shop. The shop is super busy and includes the staff actually making the cookies on sight. This is a very specific shortbread cookie in a range of flavors. My fav is the original and the cocoa. If you are a shortbread... More
