The macaroons, though shocking, are out of this world. After the first bite, I didn't mind being seen nibbling on one!

The cayenne chocolate cookie was very good. Friendly staff. Grab a cookie and walk down Castro. Some X-rated shapped desserts were for sale.

The snicker doodle cookie was warm, fresh and delicious. Unfortunately the snickers element was overpowered by the heavy dusting of cinnamon sugar. That said, it was a good treat and we'd love to return!

Put simply: great cookies. Go with whatever is fresh out of the oven. Sneak the cookies into the nearby Castro Theater and catch a flick

Great cookies. Baked fresh, delicious. Staff is very friendly. Cookies are about $2.5o each. The selection is very good. As everyone else has said, the cookies are crunchy outside and soft on the inside. Mmmmmmm

Best cookies ever!!! Baked fresh, delicious. Staff is very engaging and enlightening. Cookies are prices by weight so each one is about $2.50. There are many flavors so buy many or you will leave wondering what the others tasted like. Love these cookies!!!!

We got a simple oatmeal raisin and it was probably the definition of what a good cookie should be. Crunchy on the outside - warm and soft on the inside... More

We had a variety of cookies including a unique chocolate chili cookie which was very chocolatey with a little spice. Make sure you have something to drink. There are some interesting chocolates that you may not want to view if you are prudish. If you buy the previous day's cookies, they are discounted. We bought the fresh ones because we... More

This bakery just personifies Castro. The baked goods were great with some tongue in cheek selections. The service was also great! Grab a cookie or something else equally as yummy and sit in the chairs on the corner and watch Castro go by!
