Honestly, there is not a flavor of these cookies that isn't fantastic! And if you get there early you can even get a discounted price on day-old cookies if they happen to have them.

The cookies here melt in your mouth. They are way too expensive for the amount and size. But they are a delight to put in your mouth. You barely chew, the ingredients are so natural they melt in your mouth. This is a stop along the way for those coastal tour buses.

I have had cookies here two times. They are renown for their Brown butter cookie, which is really good but I also like the chocolate chip cookies. These are like gourmet cookies with a gourmet price. Brown Butter Cookie Co. might be the largest employer in Cayucos, as there seems to be about a dozen people working there!

I have been in the BB Cookie co. a few times and the cookies are very good but I do feel over priced.

No trip to the coast is complete without a trip to Brown Butter! Cookie tasting and buying. Yummy. It's always fun to find little packages of their cookies in other small stores as well.

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.

Thank Allen M
