“Sweet Cookies”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We visited the Castro & had to find Hot Cookie after hearing so much about them, the cookies are just delicious & so many to choose from, wish we had bought a few more to eat back at our B&B, the staff were really friendly We will definitely go back for more in 2015.

“Cookie heaven.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Our visit to Hot Cookie in Castro definitely impressed. We tried the chocolate chip, and the toffee chocolate cookies and, oh my, what a delight. If you're a visitor to the area don't be shy - it's a very friendly place and just head right on in there and say hello and enjoy an amazing cookie experience. We paid $5.50 for two cookies and it was well worth it.

“Definitely don't leave SF without some of their cookies!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Walked by this place that was highly recommended a few times during our week long stay. Wish we had tried Hot Cookie earlier. We bought some of their "day old" cookies that seemed as fresh as any other cookies from "fresh baked" shops. They were a great way to have something to nibble on for our red-eye flights back to the East Coast. Some may be put off due to the small store front, and a crowded counter area - but any wait is well worth it!
