I wish I had known! I was so surprised and overwhelmed I didn’t buy enough! Try a free sample! See how fortune cookies are made. Buy them dipped in chocolate!!!! Fantastic! In an alleyway, small, but so worth it!

During our walk in Chinatown this spot was really fun to see! It is nice to see how fortune cookies are made and you can add a personal message to the cookies. A fun thing to do/see in San francisco!

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

I don't know for sure, but would guess normal business hours. Google Maps says 8am-6pm, 7 days a week. No tour, but you can see them pressing the cookies when you step inside. Very small place.
