The selection and quality of the cookies were excellent. Perfect for a quick dessert as we strolled along the shops, plus we had some for the road trip.

Brown butter cookies are little brown buttons that don't look very attractive and taste like Chinese walnut cookies. We bought additionally some oatmeal raisin and some everything cookies that tasted better, however, the freshness did not last more than two days...did someone say 30 days??...More

I had my dog with me. He couldn't go in, but the lady behind the counter offered to bring me samples outside so that I could direct my friend as to what to procure. The cookies were spectacular.

Hand rolled butter cookies with sea salt, baked by the Sea? Yes, please! Delightful little shop, the friendly staff let you try all sorts of flavor samples. I settled on the cocoa cookies to purchase -I recommend these delicious treats!

The cookies at Brown Butter Cookie Company are melt in your mouth good!! I was a little hesitant in purchasing a bag as they were already packaged. I was told they were good for 30 days. I'm sure they are good for 30 days but...More

Cookies were okay. The originals were pretty good but the Oatmeal Raisin seemed underdone and the lemon was barely detectable in the lemon cookies which taste more like sugar cookies.

Came here on a recommendation from a friend while driving through. The staff were super nice and offered samples. Only problem was, even though I tried a few flavors, the flavors were nice, but the cookies are dry and crumbly. I like soft moist cookies....More
