Every kind of cookie imaginable--all delicious! We wandered around the district found the Hot Cookie and munched while we walked. The cookies were very expensive and worth every penny! You can't go wrong!

The Hot Cookie is a small but very popular shop in the Castro District. Every kind of cookie you might imagine, made on location, and probably the best tasting you have every eaten. This is in the Castro District, which is an interesting and enjoyable...More

Seriously the best warm cookie I ever ate!! Wish I had gotten milk tho. The cookies have fun names and are sold by weight, but I didn't find them too expensive. Shop is very small, walk in, order and walk out kind of place. Highly...More

I'm a bit addicted to the pokie cookies here (with M&Ms), but they're all good. Kind of like Mrs. Fields used to be, but a bit crispier around the edges. Very decedent. Plus the staff is always super friendly, funny, and attentive. I'm not really...More

This humble cookie palace has whatever you may be craving and more that you want but didn't know you wanted. The lines vary from short and fast to long and gratification-delaying.

This storefront sells cookies, some of which are warm. They all seem fresh. The cookies are good and several are creative, but I wouldn't say it is out of this world or anything. There is no seating and only space for a very very short...More

Hot cookie makes some really good cookies and macaroons. But I think it gets its reputation from the very adult sculptured appendage cookies that it sells. Not much is left to the imagination. But it's all a bit of fun😬

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
