“High priced terrible cookies”

Brown Butter Cookie Company

Reviewed July 7, 2014

I recently went into this store in paso robles for the first time. The texture of the cookies reminded me of almost burnt pie crust. Too dry and crumbly. A small bag of dry cookies for $15? Unreal. I was expecting a counter filled with tons of different cookies like chocolate chip. These arent cookies...

If you are stopping here for a cookie that is special then continue driving. Premium priced cookies that were quite average, I love peanut butter cookies and these were not special. We also had a chocolate chip which was below average.One of the salted cookies we had was good but 6 mini cookies for $6.50 was not worth it.

Nice staff. Free samples.Very clean

Brown Butter Cookie Company can be found on the main drag going through Cayucos, CA. It's a cute little place that welcomes you with the smell of fresh baked cookies. As you walk in the door, a worker immediately asks you if you would like a cookie sample. Once you've tried a sample, you can't help but buy some. We bought the smallest size package of the coconut lime, cocoa, and expresso cookies. They were beyond delicious. They have a unique flavor that I've never tasted in a cookie before. If you happen to be passing through Cayucos, I highly recommend a stop at the Brown Butter Cookie Company.

Located across the beach, usually has a line out the door. They do provide samples to try before purchase. Would highly recommend there Honey Cookies. They are great! Did not care for there flagship brown butter cookies as much. they were pretty salty.

After a sample, we bought a "tower" w/ 6 different types of cookies. We felt a bit rushed to buy. Cookies were good, not great. They are pricey- we would probably skip next time.
