“Penis cookies!!!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The penis cookies are perhaps more fun than delicious, but they still make exceptional gifts! Fun to share!

“Hot Cookie”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The cookies are okay and certainly overpriced even for San Francisco. The service was pitiful and they all had an air of arrogance. OVER-RATED!

“A Bit Over-Rated”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Yeah, you can get cookies shaped like a penis here, and you can buy "hot cookie" underpants, which are fine, if you're into that sort of thing.

But a place with the name "Hot Cookie" better be serving up, well, great hot cookies ... and when we were there one a Friday night, this wasn't the case.

The cookies looked great and displayed well, but our macadamia nut and chocolate toffee selections were a bit dry and unsatisfying. We've had better cookies from grocery store delis -- and that's a shame, because if the cookies here matched the personality of the place, this could be quite a destination. Not recommended.

“Loved it”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

I'd heard about this place, so took a little detour out to the Castro.

It's a very quiet and unassuming front but the product is the best part, as it should be. Fresh, sweet cookies and other extras - such as a chocolate dipped brownie on a stick. Very nice indeed.

“Cookie connoisseurs”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

My bike tour group (through Streets of San Francisco) made an impromptu stop here, after the tour guide mentioned how terrific the cookies are. All 5 of us bought cookies and ate them about 10 seconds after purchase. My husband and I shared a peanut-butter chocolate chip, and then two mini chocolate chip cookies. Delicious! If you're anywhere near by, this is worth a stop--
