I wanted to buy more, but they were pretty expensive. Tasty, but expensive. It's a very nice facility, and you can watch them work right there.

Browned butter original cookies melt in your mouth goodness. Costly place for cookies but as a special treat o vacation I'll pay the price. Walk up and they give you tastes of the originals. They will assemble bags for you of flavors you want. Walk away happy!

If the Highway 101 sign for Brown Butter Cookie Company does not lure you make sure you stop in Cayucos, CA. The BBCC is about more than the amazing Brown Butter & Sea Salt original so cookie lovers will likely find outstanding versions of their favorite cookie. Additionally this is a great town with plenty to offer in summer or... More

Nice concept, but no way I would spend $13 for 6 cookies. I had a sample of the honey cookie and it was hard as a rock. Not something I would have wanted to distribute as putting my best effort forward. Nice store front and very personable employees.

Our daughter had visited this store and strongly suggested we tried it (we later found that this was so we could buy her some more cookies!) The store was lovely: clean and well laid out and you can try a sample cookie (delicious) and see them being hand made before you buy. There's a very wide selection of flavours and... More

The cookies are quite unique and many flavors to choose from. The are packaged in different sizes and easy to travel with, or you may buy just a few different ones. You can sample any of them before you buy, which makes it nice.

We liked all the cookies here, especially the snickerdoodles and chocolate chip. We did not care for the espresso cookies, just had a very odd flavor. It's very easy to get carried away and end up with bags and bags of cookies!

We stopped here, because of all the positive comments on Trip Advisor. I'm so glad we did! Leon greeted us with a warm smile, and offered us several samples, all delicious! We tried the honey (Leon's fav!) the butter and the bourbon...all scrumptious! The bourbon cookies are made with Maker's Mark, and ate seasonal. The cookies have a shelf life... More

Best cookie to buy in a store out there. We went twice to get cookies. They are fresh, made with ingredients you can read and not over processed! They do have seasonal flavors, however after sampling all current flavors available we went with the original brown butter. Yes they are pricey; but at least I know the ingredients and what... More
