After lunch we tried these cookies and ended up buying an assortment. The brown butter cookies is a dense sugary short bread and the others are traditional drop cookies. My favorite is the lemon and my husband likes the snicker doodle. The service was excellent and you can tell the staff take pride in their work. The Brown Butter Cookie... More

Hands down the cookies at the Brown Butter Cookie Company are the best cookies I have ever put in my mouth. Every flavor is out of this world - full of the most excellent flavor and texture. BBC cookies are Perfectly Perfect. I'm trying to think which flavor is my favorite and I realized they all are. Brace yourself for... More

Had a very amazing and yummy visit in the cookie store. The staff was very friendly and offered samples galore. Bought two of our favorite cookies and the store through in a bag of Spiced cookies. Wow!!

Walk in and taste COOKIES ! The Cookies are baked and made right on site- perfect gifts and really friendly employees! If they add a few tables on the porch.. wow.. people might just sit back and eat cookies all day.. A must stop if spending time on the Coast- to or from Hearst Castle!

Honestly, there is not a flavor of these cookies that isn't fantastic! And if you get there early you can even get a discounted price on day-old cookies if they happen to have them.

The cookies here melt in your mouth. They are way too expensive for the amount and size. But they are a delight to put in your mouth. You barely chew, the ingredients are so natural they melt in your mouth. This is a stop along the way for those coastal tour buses.

I have had cookies here two times. They are renown for their Brown butter cookie, which is really good but I also like the chocolate chip cookies. These are like gourmet cookies with a gourmet price. Brown Butter Cookie Co. might be the largest employer in Cayucos, as there seems to be about a dozen people working there!

I have been in the BB Cookie co. a few times and the cookies are very good but I do feel over priced.
