Down a little alley in Chinatown you find the Fortune Cookie Factory. Watch as fortune cookies are being made in front of your eyes and buy some to take with you for later. A fun little treasure in San Francisco.

Loved the factory visit! We got lots of free samples and bought bags of cookies to much on during the day. A fun little destination when visiting Chinatown.

I'm sure my best friend and I looked like the typical tourists when a local recommended us visit the cookie factory. I really did not know what to expect but I'm so glad we listened to their advice . If I remember correctly this is the only hand made fortune cookie factory in the world . The shop is very... More

This looked like a great place to get fortune cookies with personalized messages. If you are looking for a store -- go here. But there isn't a tour. We read the reviews and thought it was a tour. Its not. Unfortunately the staff doesn't speak English. They are very nice, but we were unsuccessful

Check it out, almost could not find this little Jen in china town. Women sit and easily work hard to make tiny cookies with a fortune. Interesting fun stop

On the window it had x-rated and adult features. Scary place afraid to leave my car. Didn't even go in a waist of time.

Spent about 5 minutes here but glad we stopped. We had fun trying to communicate with the workers who seemed to know zero English. $1 tour gives you quick access to 4 machines and you get to see how a fortune cookie is made. Purchased several bags of fortune and moon cookies and we were on our way. If you... More

I'm not easily impressed. I'm a bit of a nerd (ok. I'm a LOT of a nerd). This place was COOL! They were pleasant, friendly, easy to get to (you'll probably have to feed the meter to park on the street), and informative. It only cost a buck per person for our 4 person party. It's not large and there's... More

Small 4-5 personal factory. Cost $1 to tour and they feed you lots and lots of cookies. It was interesting to see how they made the cookies and the operation. No photos allowed, so don't have any to share, We purchased a box of cookies - 400 of them for my wife's class ($20) and walked the block to the... More

Having had Fortune Cookies many times, we were interested to see how they were made. The location is in Ross Avenue in Chinatown, a small alleyway between two streets. The entrance is easily missed but is on the ground floor with a barber's shop entrance alongside going downstairs. The factory is tiny and the workers are two women sat one... More
