It you like cookies and who doesn't PCC is your best bet ever. They have a large variety of cookies so those who like different than chocolate chip will also not be disappointed. For a special effect try their "chocolate dipped". These are great for a change of pace. I cannot believe that you will not consider their cookies the... More

Fresh baked cookies are hard to beat. This is conveniently located on Pacific Avenue. There is a warehouse at Sash Mill where you can get the cookies for less. These are great cookies!

I was pleasantly surprised by this cookie shop. The prices were a bit unpleasant for my tastes (over $1 for a single cookie), but I ordered the white chocolate macadamia nut cookie and looooved it. That's always my go to cookie and if a place can make that well, then it's a new favorite place to buy cookies!

Even though it was cold outside, all 10 of us squeezed into this cookie shop after dinner to enjoy freshly baked cookies and ice cream. If you don't mind slightly sticky tables and floors, this is a great place for a cookie/ice cream treat.

I first went to this place when I was in college in the 1980s. This place still serves the same recipe and same amazing cookies 35 years later. It's good to see that a small business like this has been around for such a long time and competes with all the large corporate businesses which now dominate Pacific Avenue.

Consistently excellent cookies and ice cream. Flavors to choose from are excellent and everything taste homemade. Kids love the giant ice cream sandwhiches!

Nothing makes a Cahootz like the Pacific Cookie Company! A staple on the Pacific Garden Mall with the best cookies around.

Really great cookies and a cheap way to have dessert. Next time you're having dinner in downtown Santa Cruz, skip the dessert and do what locals do. Go to the Pacific Cookie Company! You can't go wrong with any of their flavors. My favorite, hands down, by far is the coconut macaroon especially the chocolate dipped. They taste like Mounds... More

After having a small meal at Pour just down the block, we stopped by for a quick dessert, of course the cookie I had was delicious. Great service too.
