Friendly people, clean and safe shop, and absolutely fantastic cookies at fairly reasonable prices. I knew I was in for a treat when I walked in and could smell the deliciousness through my face mask! My husband loves the lavender and rosemary shortbreads while I...favor the peanut butter and lemon cookies but you really can't go wrong. Great parking, hand sanitizer out front ... this is a great spot!More

This is a great find. Stumbled upon this place on accident about more than two dozen cookies. You can get them however you want them and they have very very good flavor. The variety is just exceptional

This place is always busy and last time I came in the afternoon and they were out of gluten free items. This time I went before the lunch rush and I got a wonderful gluten free snickerdoodle cookie. I should have bought 2–they were so...good. And moderately priced.More

My favorite are the Mexican wedding cookies, sugared pecan balls. My other favorite are the chocolate ones. Well, whatever the last cookie you had there will be your favorite because they all are so good. They have specialty decorated ones for all the holidays which...make nice gifts.More

I stopped in today for some Christmas decorated cookies. I called to make sure they had them available w/o having to place an order. The curt customer service began there. When I asked the question the “Yes” that was given sounded more like a “yes...of course dummy” but I brushed it off and headed that way. I walked in and was cheerfully greeted by an employee. Then it was my turn to order, and here I was reacquainted with the voice from the phone call. Over all she answered any questions that I had, and she wasn’t rude, but she wasn’t friendly either. I’m sure you get what I’m saying. Who knows maybe it was just a bad day for her. The cookies are beautifully decorated. I ordered and ate one of their daily cookies and it was good. Not great, but good. As are many bakeries in San Antonio, with friendlier customer service.More

I really love Lily's cookies because they are beautiful and taste good too. BUT...the customer service there is the absolute worst! I stop in frequently for work and buy over $100 worth of cookies every time, and almost every time I go by the people...who help me are so rude. I don't get it! It's the cutest shop with amazing cookies, but the staff attitudes just don't match up. I've tried to go in with a chipper attitude to see if I can lighten the mood, and bring a smile to someone's face, but they just have a terrible attitude. I've spoken to other sales reps who have experienced the same thing there. Lily's owner should go by Bird Bakery and take note of their employee attitudes and service! So disappointing. Every. Single. Time.More

A bit over priced for what you get. We got about $13 worth of assorted cookies & only liked a couple of them. The plain iced cookie was the best, probably won’t go back.

Fabulous cookie shop. Lovely decorated cookies and unusual daily made cookies you can buy per dozen. Have bought for my kids birthday parties and the recipients and my kids loved the cookies. Great find in San Antonio.

We had fun just looking at all the cookies available! there are so many really wonderfully decorated cookies available. The prices are reasonable as I know having decorated cookies like this in a class it is super time consuming. We bought some of there "regular"...un-decorated cookies and they were great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I plan to buy some and send to family out of town for special occasions.More

Went here after hearing from a friend who lives nearby that this place was worth a try and she was right. We picked out a few delights from the cookie bar. The cowboy cookies are so good I was taking tiny bites to make it...last longer. Definitely try the Texas honey and double chocolate pecan too. Didn't get a chance to try the decorated cookies or the bars they offer but boy did they look good. Very intricate designs on some of them. If you've got a sweet tooth and can get here one day, do it!More
