While touring the central CA coast we stumbled upon this place. In the town and particularly in this cookie company we found the most friendly people you would ever want to meet.

This establishment makes some of the best cookies around. They are well known for their butter sugar cookies, but their peanut butter and snicker doodles cookies are also great. Can't leave Cayucos before you try a dozen of these.

Really unique cookies, delicious, not cheap, but worth it. These make great gift bags to give to friends. Definitely worth a detour along with Rudell's Smokehouse.

A unique place to visit. The cookies are very good. I had the snickerdoodles, and tried their little butter sugar cookie, which melts in your mouth. They are a bit pricey but I am sure that they use only the best ingredients and those don't come cheep.

Experience local hospitality and incredible cookies, made on sight by locals... you can even watch them being prepared, on certain days. Their are several types of cookies, all of which are encouragingly offered up for tasting. It's located in a charming building and offers a delightful experience and FANTASTIC cookies! Don't miss this!

Lots of free samples, so take your time. Be sure to try the honey version. These cookies will last several weeks before opening.

Hard to miss this place in Cayucos (small town that it is) and it is worth the stop and you have a lot of driving to do to get any other place. They will give you a little taste to get you hooked (like a dealer) but only on the main items, the special stuff they will not let you... More
