I'm not a major sweets eater, and I don't even like snickerdoodles, but my friend wanted to stop into Hot Cookie to show me the bulletin board (LOL) and grab a snack. I had one bite of their snickerdoodle and fell in LOVE. Another offering there, the Butch Bar, is wonderful. If you are in San Francisco and wander through the Castro, you have to stop in at Hot Cookie. Get one of every single thing, and you will NOT be sorry. So Good. So SO GOOD.

The cookies here tasted amazing. Very fresh, good sized, and the service was friendly. I wish I would have bought more because I wanted to go back for the remainder of my San Francisco trip.

The snickerdoodles are superb.
The chocolate and toffee are marvelous.
The pecan cookies are terrific, too...though not sweet enough for my tooth.
The Oatmeal were quite good as well.
