Used PCC for our wedding dessert bc the groom loves cookies. Our order was easy to place and  was ready on time for pick up. Our guests loved it! (We ordered three baskets worth for 120 guests). There were barely any left at the end of the the night! More...

The cookies here are amazing!!!! You can get a half dozen for 6.75 so very good prices. The minted cookies remind me of thin mint Girl Scout cookies!

Their snickerdoodle is one of the best snickerdoodles I've had!!  This Place was good.  I didn't love all the cookies because I'm a milk chocolate fan and they use dark/semi sweet.

If you're looking for some really good cookies at a very fair price this is it. They make them right there on the premises they're fresh. The serving people are nice people they have a large variety. I'm into it very good thank you More...

Okay, this is a local favorite. I think that beyond the various ice cream shops this is hands down a favorite of most Santa Cruzans.I remember taking my kids to the outlet/discards at the factory off Portrero and getting a bunch of cookies after swim lessons. My kids like the chocolate chip, lemon and I like almost anything with nuts. The cahootz are a nice mix of nuts, chocolate chips and cherries. More...

Love cookies!! I can't wait to try them! There are variety of cookies in the shop. Price were reasonable. Too bad they closed down in Berkeley.Anyway, I tried them. I bought the Mint Condition, Cahootz, Dark Chocolate Cranberry, and Dr.midnight. I've been searching and craving for Mint Chocolate Chip cookie all over Bay Area. Usually they are seasonal item  until my co worker recommended I try the Pacific Cookie Company. OMG! Delicious!!! One of the best cookies I've ever eaten. I usually microwave the cookie for 15-20 seconds eating, ahhh it melt in my mouth. So delicious More...

This place was really cool! I enjoyed the fresh snickerdoodles and salted caramel ice cream in an ice cream sandwich. We bought half a dozen cookies and enjoyed the peanut butter cookies, the snickerdoodles, and the chocolate chip with macadamia nuts a ton. Good service, accessible location, and ample seating!

Fresh and delicious cookies! Snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin, and chocolate chip are abundant, as well as speciality flavors and dipped varieties. The cookie shop is located in fun and trendy downtown Santa Cruz. The workers are friendly and helpful. This place was packed on a Saturday night so we decided to check it out and were not disappointed! More...

Delicious cookies and ice cream and the cookie with ice cream is the best combo.  They normally have cookies warming in the warmer and that goes perfectly with the ice cream of your choice.  The chocolate walnut cookie with coffee ice cream was my first choice. More...

My husband & I happened to be walking downtown & we stumbled across this place. As soon as we walked in. Boom! The AMAZING smell of the cookies kept us in. I ordered a Snickerdoodle cookie & an Oatmeal raisin. Wow!!! You MUST try them both. My husband also loved his cookies. Definitely recommend anyone to stop here. Cookie lovers dream! More...

Cookies, did someone say cookies?  How about discounted quality ones?  They use Guittard Chocolate and other fine ingredients.The cookies are over runs and some are rejects.  You may not find every type of cookie flavors here.  If you do, it will be discounted and taste great.  There are usually small cookies and regular sized ones as well.  Prices are typically 25, 50, or on occasion 75 Cents.  I believe the proceeds from their sales here are donated to the homeless.My favorites are the Chocolate Chip which are a little crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside.  My other favorite is the Oatmeal which is soft.  When kept in a Plastic Bag they taste fresh for a few days.Check out there retail store at 1203 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz for fresh baked cookies.  They also sell cookies for shipments at pacificcookie.com.

I'm so happy to find this little shop during my trip to Santa Cruz! They have a wide variety of cookies and even offer one free cookie when you check in using yelp! I waited to get back home to try them and they were so soft and good! I wish I got more. Can't wait to go back and try more flavors! More...

This was my first visit to Pacific Cookie Company but it will not be my last. I love a good cookie and these are top notch! They're fresh and chewy and super buttery. We tried the Dark Chocolate Cranberry and chocolate dipped Mint Condition...both were phenomenal! $1.25 per cookie and $2 for the dipped may seem pricey but they are decent sized and the ingredients are excellent quality. Highly recommend!!! More...

I went to this location today for the first time. I thought the cookies were all delicious and fresh. The customer service was great and the location seemed very clean. The cookies seem to be of good quality. I live 40 miles away from Santa Cruz but would go again just for the cookies. More...

These cookies have been the only reason why I'd drive to Santa Cruz from San Jose, and then drive back home after. I would definitely recommend the Lemon Drop and Mint Condition. Don't forget to buy a carton of milk before leaving! More...

Absolutely a must-stop if in town or passing by anywhere near. Make a detour if you have to. It is right on the Main Street through downtown Santa Cruz. Friendly staff with amazing cookies made fresh daily. Seriously, so good!I love the chocolate dipped ones, but they are an extra $0.75 each. It is a thick layer of chocolate though. The cookies are a pretty good size too. Also available are delicious macaroons - chocolate dipped or not.Best deal for a half dozen, and you might as well because one will never be enough. More...

The cookies here would make Santa not want to leave if you left a plate out for him. I come here a few times before work to get cookies for the office. It always hits the spot.

Cookies of course! They have the best cookies, except for one other person who made better cookies that I knew once that had better because he made them with love, or so he said. But yes very good cookies!

One of the best cookies I have ever tasted. The perfect chewy texture with some minimal surface crunch. I bought "mint condition", which is a dark chocolate cookie with mint chip, and the flavor was rich without being too sweet. I regret only buying one cookie.

Good, solid cookies. We liked everything we ordered, which included the cahootz, mint condition, dr midnight, peanut butter and a few others.  Some seating inside, would not suggest bringing a large group though. Will be back if I'm in the area. More...

Whenever my boyfriend and I visit downtown Santa Cruz from San Jose, it's customary for us to stop by the Pacific Cookie Company. The ice cream is great, of course, because they carry Marianne's, a Santa Cruz ice cream cornerstone. Personally I only really go for the cookies. Pacific Cookie Company's cookies are absolutely fantastic, and they're made just the way I like them - soft, chewy, and packed with whatever yummy morsels (mint chips, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, etc.) that they come with. My favorites include the mint chocolate, chocolate chip, cahootz (white chocolate and macadamia nut), and lemon. The lemon cookies are particularly addicting! The reason why I'm giving a 4-star rating is because of the lack of transparency during my latest visit. My boyfriend and I haven't been to Pacific Cookie Company in a long time, so we were both excited to see that there were chocolate dipped versions of each cookie. We had ordered a baker's dozen, including the chocolate dipped versions. A baker's dozen is ~$13, but our total ended up coming around $20. I was really surprised by the jump in price, and it was only after we paid that the server mentioned to us that it's because the chocolate dipped cookies were premium. I wish she had told us that BEFORE I started ordering. Many places will advise in advance that some ingredients will cost extra, so I thought that wasn't cool of her not giving us the heads up.

Love supporting local businesses and the Pacific Cookie Company was my staple cookie spot in SC.  The main store was convenient if you were downtown but I also really recommend and appreciate the bags of cheap cookies you can get from the secret factory shop on Potrero Ave. that sold surplus or edible rejected cookies for 25 or 50 cents each.  Awesome deal.Anyway, just follow your nose and you will find the store.  The cookies are fresh, delicious and it's hard to just eat one.  My favorites are the chocolate chip (plain and with walnut), snicker doodle, peanut butter, there are also some fun choco dipped ones.  You really can't go wrong if you're a Cookie Monster like me.They also sell Marianne's ice cream if you wanted to make an ice cream sandwich or have it on the side.

I ordered the Bold & Beautiful Cookie Gift Box as a gift of gratitude to a Texas company who had recreated old photos for me to replace those I had lost in the October 2017 California wildfires.  I was a bit skeptical about Pacific Cookie's ability to make and ship the cookies within two days, but I shouldn't have worried.  Here's the response I received from the recipient:  "We received the best cookies I have ever had today.  I put the beautiful box with your note in the back.  The guys were so touched."So thank you, Pacific Cookie Company, for providing the perfect gift to express my gratitude for their priceless gift to me.

Best cookies out there ! All the cookies were delicious and moist. (I'm not a crunchy cookie believer) I had gotten the oatmeal chocolate, regular chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. Hands down snickerdoodle was the winner . Definitely will be coming again when I'm in the area ! And a little fun tip for those that are concerned over nutrition or like viewing nutrition facts ! They have a little nutrition guide on the wall next to the door . More...

I'm not too big on sweets, but when I get that craving.. 99.9% of the time it will be for a cookie. So I guess you can call me a cookie connoisseur, specializing in chocolate chip cookies. I live in San Jose and I WISH PCC was closer to me. Hands down, the best chocolate chip cookie I've had - first bite was buttery, crispy outer, super soft gooey inside. There's a piece of heaven in every bite! Just stumbled upon this place and the aroma of baked goods just lured me in. I only bought one for myself, but after the first bite I wish I bought a dozen to bring back home. People speak very highly of the Cahootz cookie, so I'll be back to try that baby out. $2 per cookie More...

THIS PLACE IS AMAZEBALLS. You really can't go wrong with any of the cookies here. Except if you're on a diet... PROS:* if you like thick cookies, THIS IS YOUR PLACE* The cookies taste so fresh and buttery! Even after a few days. Be sure to store them in an airtight container. * Nice crunch with a soft interior* Reasonable prices! * Favorites: Chocolate chip with walnuts - crunchy pieces of walnuts take these cookies to the next level. Mint chocolate - Mint lovers need this cookie! The mints are so refreshing and work well in contrast with the deep chocolatey flavors. Triple chocolate - straight up tastes like a brownie but in cookie form. Its amazing. CONS:* Cookies don't come in a box so they get broken up just sitting in the plastic bag. The cookies are really worth it. Our drive from San Jose was well worth the trip. Theres quite a bit of street parking even when we went on a Sunday afternoon. The metered parking is pretty cheap too- about $1 for an hour. Not to mention, this place is tucked away in a really cute part of Santa Cruz filled with boutiques, restaurants, and shopping. The selection is awesome, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend trying this place out to satisfy your sweet tooth! More...

I looooooove Pacific Cookie Company!!!!  They have a nice selection and they are always fresh. I always have to get the lemon drop and mint condition cookies. If your stopping in to get a cookie to eat on the go don't forget to grab some regular or chocolate milk out of their fridge. More...

Wow, the cookies here are really worth it. The flavors here aren't completely different from what you would get somewhere else. But even late at night the cookies are baked to just the right firm consistency on the outside but ooey gooey on the inside. Personally, I prefer the way Pacific Cookie Company does their cookies because if they were baked any longer they tend to be dry. The chocolate chip with walnut is a definite must try its that good. This place can get pretty busy so be sure to ask if you don't see the your preference in the display box. It's possible they might have some fresh out of the oven and still cooling on the racks.

If you're looking for a quick dessert or snack, go here! The cookies are consistently good and I haven't tried a flavor I haven't liked yet. Also, if you're a college student or don't want to break the bank, they have a great check-in deal where you get a FREE cooking with any purchase. ;) Note: Whenever you want to treat yourself, please try the cookie ice cream sandwich...happy calories, I'll say!!!

I knew about this hidden gem a long time ago when I was a Banana Slug at UCSC.  My sister and I decided to have a downtown Santa Cruz date, and I decided to show her this wonderful place.She was dubious about entering until I showed her the corner to the left of the door with racks full of cookies for $.25 or $.50, and several employees smiled at us from the floor.  I explained the dropbox cash payment method and assured her that I had enough to cover a few dozen! I was so glad to find the factory still open to the public!  The entrance to the parking lot crosses the train tracks at a strange angle so it's easy to miss, but well worth the stop when getting into or leaving town.

I love this place! You can buy the cookies or get it as an ice cream sandwich. You can even get two different cookies on the sandwich if you want. They have gluten free options as well. Not sure if I saw any vegan but I think they do. They have some changing flavors so you may find some different stuff on certain days. The service is good here too! It's not too pricey either. They're located in downtown near the parking garages so it's worth it to come by if you're in the area and you're craving something sweet! More...

Amazing cookies!!! Only shitty thing is if you want them warmed they can be assholes about it! This is my third time going & ask to get my cookies warmed & ive been told they don't warm any up!

What can you do with 50 cents? Buy a cookie.  Today we barely made it ( it closes at 4 pm). Good thing they can change a 20.00 bill.  I got 7 dollars worth.  Chocolate chip, peanut butter, lemon drop, midnight ( double chocolate), macadamia nut with white chocolate chip.  Mint cookie.  I love this place.  I scarf down two cookies in a matter of minutes.  The cookies are a meal in itself.

O.M.G.. too yummy. i seriously devoured majority of it almost immediately. within the next few days, i felt a deep regret for not buying more that night :'(i will be back!!!!!!! More...

This review is for Stella. I wanted to order cookies delivered but the delivery website would not work and said the store was closed. I called the store and Stella answered. She was very helpful and patient and went out of her way to get all the right information so that I could buy and pay for cookies directly and then have someone else go pick them up. I don't think most people answering phones for a cookie shop would be so caring or kind as she was so I hope that her boss or manager sees this and rewards her in some way. She is thoughtful and capable and has good communication skills. More...

When trying to decide what type of holiday thank you gifts to send to clients and trade contractors, we worked with Stefani to take care of the 72 dozen cookies that were mailed to 65 businesses and individuals. They went out on time and we've been getting nothing but positive messages from the recipients!  This was the easiest holiday giving we could have asked for. In the past, we would spend hours assembling gift bags and more hours delivering.  The money spent on shipping was a fraction compared to the cost to do it ourselves.  AND we are supporting a community business.  WIN, WIN!

I really enjoy the employees at this location, the girl working on the evening of December second was extremely helpful with my inability to decide on cookies. It was my second time there and was almost lost on what to get but was given solid recommendations on what was good. Dr Midnight and a snickerdoodle made my night after getting off of work. I definitely recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys a good cookie in their day, I enjoy them with a cold carton of milk, 10/10. More...

If you love cookies, this is an amazing, hidden gem! This location sells "irregular" cookies....not sure what that means exactly since the cookies look & taste no differently than what they sell at their Pacific Ave location.  They have all their usual cookies (choc chip, mint chocolate, double chocolate, snickerdoodles, oatmeal raisin & peanut butter) but no speciality cookies (chocolate-dipped/covered, etc).  The smaller cookies are $.25 each and the larger ones are $.50.  Whenever I'm in SC I stop in for my cookie fix :) More...

If you like cookies...this is your jam. The cookies here a delicious and make you want to do a "I just got a cookie dance". They have a nice crunch with a soft inside. Amazing when fresh out of the oven. I can't remember the name of the cookie but the one with coconut, almonds and chocolate chips is fantastic. Their chocolate chip cookie is all butter..ALL BUTTER. They have a solid oatmeal raisin and a nice snicker doodle appropriately sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  They aren't too expensive and you'll be able to find a deal that suits your sweet tooth. I went with the bakers dozen...my inner kid couldn't resist. I don't even know what else was on the menu but check it out and you'll find yourself in cookie euphoria. More...

I had a milkshake here and it was a little lackluster - not enough flavor for my liking. Ended up ordering a dozen cookies after my unsatisfying shake and ate them all with my bf in one sitting. The cookies here are phenomenal. Probably the best variety of crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, perfectly balanced flavor that I've ever experienced. The lemon and snickerdoodles were my personal favorites. More...

When I first had a mini cookie in plastic wrap at brown box lunch event at work, I loved it, but I did not know they had a location on Pacific Avenue. These guys are everywhere now and rightly so.They've got an amazing cookie-junkies' delight of fresh, chewy diet killers. I love their snickerdoodles, gingerbread, and PB cookies. But don't take my word for it, I'm just a junkie. Go once like I did, and you'll be hooked.Then, you'll likely be scoring oatmeal raisin cookies on street corners. More...

My cousin went to UCSC and recommended this place to me for amazing cookies. She was right. It's delicious.I find Pacific Cookie Company to be reasonable in price compared to places in SF or San Jose. Whenever I'm in Santa Cruz, I usually get the baker's dozen to bring home. Always get the chocolate chip cookies. You won't regret it. My sister enjoys the almond joe & mint condition, both very unique and good.They do sell day old cookie for cheap, so look for that by the entrance. There's also a combo deal for cookies and milk (genius idea)! More...

I was trying to find a place to grab dessert before leaving Santa Cruz and I've been craving a good snicker doodle cookie for a while. Stupid me, only got 6 cookies TO SHARE. I didn't know better. I should have known by the way the shopped smelled. There were many cookie options but they were all classic flavors and the choice of 6 of my favorite cookies were not hard. I got a snicker doodle, oatmeal chocolate chip, coconut macaron, oatmeal raisin, gingersnap and peanut butter. They were all perfect. Crisp on the outside and soft towards the middle. I only wish I got more cookies and some milk. Now I know that this shop will be a definite stop every time I go to Santa Cruz. More...

OMG this cookie store is pretty sweet! Yes, it is a little bit the pricey at $1.25 for a cookie and $2 if it's chocolate dipped!We tried the regular chocolate chip, a chocolate chip dipped in chocolate, snickerdoodle, peanut butter chocolate chip, and the white chocolate macadamia. All of these were pretty good choices. As you bite into the cookie, you can tell it's not your regular chips a hoy. It is soft and breaks apart easily. It has the right amount of chewiness for me. If you want really chewy cookies this isn't it. I wish it could've been fresh hot out of the oven but it's not. If you're feeling splurgy for a cookie, go for it. Your taste buds will be glad you did. If for some reason you want to save a dollar, get the 1-2 day old cookies by the door. More...

Came here when looking for a late night snack. The cookies and milkshake were great. I would've given it 5 stars had I not discovered after leaving that I had been charged for 3 cookies and a milkshake after only requesting 2 cookies and a milkshake. Being my usual fat self, I wasn't too perturbed and ate that extra cookie, as well as the small cup of extra milkshake I was given when they realized they had mixed too much when making my shake.

I'm so obsessed with these cookies! I had one in Santa Cruz on my vacation, and had to go the next day for six more! I'm contemplating ordering 8 dozen...I just need an occasion to share the love, so I don't eat all of them myself! More...

Ummm... if you dodon'tnt stop off at Pacific Cookie Company before getting back on the 1 or the 17, IT WAS A WASTED TRIP! My personal favorites are the Oatmeal cookie BUT make over the top favorite are Chocolate Chip or the Triple Chocolate chip cookie because of you put them into to the microwave for 30 seconds and then throw a couple of scoops of Vanilla Bean ice cream over the top of them... HEAVEN... shh.�

Kudos to the cool peeps at Pacific Cookie Company. I send out monthly cookie gifts to my clients and pop into the office once a month. Stefani and the employees in the office are always fun and helpful. Who wouldn't love working there amongst fresh baked cookies all day?! Plus the single cookies you can buy on the honor system right there are a nice treat. Check it out, down at the Sash Mill. More...

Honestly, this is the best cookie shop I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. If you go to Santa Cruz and don't stop here, you're out of your mind. The cookies are always fresh and I love that you can get their little "meal deals" -- cookie and a glass of milk. Love it!

My absolute favorite is Dr. Midnight that sexy beast! Dark chocolate cookie, with chocolate pieces, which seem to melt in your mouth. Oh my heavens! ❤️

Delicious cookies and for the most part good customer service, I say for the most part because occasionally you run into a smart ass behind the counter; last night after dinner we stopped by and picked up our usual assortment, Dr. Midnight's, Oatmeal,  and Chocolate Chip, the cherry bomb caught my eye so I asked the clerk what was in it and he looked at me as though I was stupid and sarcastically responded Cherries and Sugar...I ordered one anyway and it was delicious, although the clerk in his sarcastic attitude filled description failed to warn that there are also cherry pits in the cookie! So warning to you all beware of cherry pits in the delicious cherry bomb cookie! More...

Okay, if you are lucky enough to be there when they have dipped the coconut cookies into dark chocolate, then you better buy some! But those are gone by mid-day it seems (we've been there a few times). All of the products we've had there have been very good. And friendly staff, too. More...

4.5 Wow oh wow I'm in love with Mint Condition!! Just look at all of those dreamy green chips embedded in that double chocolate cookie. Wide eyed and drooling. Kinda like when you see your celebrity crush in person. Haha! Too bad my cashier encounter soured my experience a bit. More on that later. First, we celebrate cookies! And they generously dip those bad boys in chocolate more than halfway! That is, if you choose to dress your cookie in more sugary goodness.I was able to visit PCC in Berkeley before they closed. Major eye candy handling orders there, btw ;-) That nighttime visit had me buying the last two mint condition and one lemon drop. Check in before walking in to ensure you get that free cookie offer! I missed it back in Berkeley but got it here in SC. I bought a 1/2 dozen of Mint Condition and made sure to give my sis 2 of them because I may have, ahem, accidentally eaten both that I got my first visit. Sooo good!! I had one the day I bought them, another the next, and valiantly attempted to save two for my friend and his bf who both love PCC. Sorry, guys! Way too tempting seeing them in my locker at work. It's the work stress lol! Anywho, if mint choco isn't your thing, I also tried the walnut choco chip and ginger spice dipped in chocolate. Antoine's in San Mateo makes my fave walnut chip so I was comparing it to that. His cookies are chewier, softer than PCC's, which has a bit of a stiff, thicker exterior. Still pretty good though. Ginger spice is different from your average cookie. I love the Spice Girls, but wasn't a huge fan of this cookie. Crystallized ginger isn't my thing. The chocolate dip saved it for me. Not saying it's a bad cookie, definitely well made, just not my preference. 3x the ginger! Crystallized & ground ginger w/ ginger sugar up top. I remember the lemon as refreshing.So what happened with service? I felt a bit rushed.It was noon on a Saturday, maybe one group ahead of my friend and me. The elder cashier lady was behind the counter, huge location btw! I could feel her staring at me, waiting for me to order so she wouldn't have to wait on me anymore. I wanted to see what PCC had to offer but felt compelled to order what I had planned out at the top of my head, which was mint condition, and ginger spice caught my eye. I couldn't give the other cookies much love,  not even a second glance. I noticed walnut choco chip at the last second. She kept asking what else. Erm, maybe if you gave me a chance to peruse, or even told me to take my time deciding, the process would've been more pleasant.They serve ice cream! So grab a scoop or get it stuffed between two cookies for a good ole fashioned sammich! The name Cahootz sounds funny but cool-- white choco macadamia w/ a hint of coconut. Dark choco cranberry, anyone? If only they had white choco instead, lots of college library cafe memories. I think they've got 13 different kinds of cookies:Almond JoeCahootzSnickerdoodleDr. Midnight 3x chocoMint ConditionLemon DropGinger SpiceChocolate ChipWalnut Chocolate ChipOatmeal RaisinPeanut ButterPB w/ choco chipsDark Choco CranberryI'm pretty sure all can be dipped in chocolate.They sell day old cookies & choco dipped ones at a discounted price! Good thing PCC is so far away from me. I'm gaining a pound just thinking of another Mint Condition. More...

I really enjoyed my trip here. I'm a Santa Cruz native who moved away, and one of my favorite memories is sneaking a lemon drop cookie from my grandmas. So I recently took a trip to Santa Cruz and decided to see if the cookies were still as good as I remembered. They were! I went ahead and bought all the lemon drop cookies they had. Only downside is that they only have 6 left, wish they had more but I'll be back for a restock. I tried their other cookies as well and I wasn't disappointed. Really great cookies and the people who worked there were friendly too. More...

For those in our community that are looking for a real treat for an event or for your employees, I can't recommend more strongly that you stop in at Pacific Cookie Company, as their employees are as good as their cookies.I needed something for my wife's Open House, and I was given great suggestions and help by super welcoming staff.Yes, I snuck a peanut butter cookie for myself, since my mama didn't raise no fool, as I know how good their cookies are, so don't miss out on this local treat!!

I love their cookies! I got a dozen and got 1 free. Their mint cookies are so good! Not too minty. Too bad both Mutari Chocolate House and Factory weren't open yet. I would have loved to have tried their hot chocolate with Pacific's cookies. Their tip jar was interesting. I was hesitant putting my tip since it was filled with water. I didn't believe my sister's bf when he told me to put the tip in the jar. I thought he was playing a trick on me. More...

Best cookies in the world. Mint Condition is the best. Even if I'm in SC and have nothing else to do in downtown I will swing by PCC on my way out.

The cookies here are very good and the people are always friendly.  If I had any complaint it would be that asking them to warm up the cookie only gets you a lukewarm one...but the chocolate is still melty and what more does anyone want?  :) More...

Perfectly great still and about half the price. Nice people More...

Definitely didn't have the issues other reviewers complained about with hard cookies.  I came in for one post lunch cookie on a day trip, solo. I saw the check-in offer, heck yes!!! Amounts to bogo, but I got 3 because I couldn't choose. Mint chocolate was probably my least favorite but not because it was a bad cookie, just because the other two rocked my mouth! Chocolate dipped almond joy (?) Was so freaking good. And the snickerdoodle was better than my mom ever made. I even waited to eat the other two with a friend like 8 hours later and they were just as good. Service was prompt and friendly. I'd totally go here again if I were in town! More...

If you are in the Santa CruzArea, you must try out the Pacific Cookie Company. It's equally rated as high as Honolulu Cookie Company is in Hawaii. There's just something about this place that brings out such a great experience with their cookies. Just like how the food critic's reaction was in Ratatouille, this cookie company really knows how to make a mean cookie. I highly recommend their chocolate chip,lemon and midnight chocolate cookies. Also, if you'd like, they can warm it up for free or dip it for an extra $0.75. It's a great stop for some sweets at a great price! Check in for a free cookie!! More...

After a leaving a two star review, detailing the toughness of their cookies, I was contacted by the owner. She was so kind and offered to send me a batch of fresh cookies.Of course I was excited. I love free things. I wasn't expecting the cookies to be soft and delicious!Maybe the cookies I tasted had a bad night, tough morning, whatever. The cookies they sent me tho! Delicious. I don't even wanna share them with anyone. I just wanna be greedy.

This place will satisfy your sweet tooth! :) Parking: Paid street parking Ambience: There are a few tables, but most of the footprint of the store is for the bakery. Service: The person who served me was friendly, and b/c it's cookies that are already baked and ready to put in the bag, service was fast. Order: 1) Chocolate Chip Cookies: Perfectly sweet. The center was so soft. The edges were crunchy. It was the perfect cookie for me. 2) Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts: This is similar to the chocolate chip cookies except with a crunch from the walnuts. Verdict: 5 b/c I had no complaints of this place. The cookies were well-priced ($1.25) and delicious! More...

I came here accidentally thinking it was the main shop on Pacific but its actually a factory! You walk in and go to the left side and tada, all these cookies for quarters!The small cookies are $.25 and the bigger cookies are $.50, they have an honor system so theirs no cashier or nothing, just slip in the cash in the box. If you need change go upstairs and the ladies will help you out. The chocolate chip, double chocolate chip, macadamia, and lemon cookies were amazing. Honestly this spot is a gem, and if you only care about the cookies and nothing else, come here rather than the other spot. More...

I dropped in here while I was here on a work trip. Being right next to office was a perk. A cookie shop with different flavors of ice cream and about 10 different versions of cookies.I picked up dark chocolate and white macadamia nuts. Both tasted great but for a chocolate lover I was surprised at my inclination for the latter.If you do checkin on yelp, you get a free cookie on every purchase.  So make sure to get on that for extra joy!...Value for money: excellent!! I paid $2 foe two cookies. More...

If you are looking for the perfect cookie, then the Pacific Cookie Company is the place for you!  If you are on a strict, sugar free diet, carbohydrate free diet, then I advise that you walk on the opposite side of Pacific Avenue because this place is too big of a temptation! The scent of freshly baked cookies is so strong that you catch wind of it about ten paces before you pass the building! The cookies they produce in this little bakery are so packed with flavor and are the best I've ever had! Many have searched but you won't find a cookie that even comes close to the deliciousness of the cookies made by the Pacific Cookie Company! Yes the cookies are available at your neighborhood Nob Hill grocery store but there is just nothing that compares to your receiving it baked, fresh out of the oven! I have only tried about three of their cookies but my favorite by far is the Cahootz.  I don't usually like white chocolate but their white chocolate is so milky and when paired with toasted macadamia nuts and a hint of coconut, it creates the perfect flavor profile! Don't believe me, the numbers don't lie because you will notice that the Cahootz has the least amount of cookies left on their baking trays!As for the customer service, well it's standard and not as spectacular as their product. You are usually helped by young people that are probably working their way through school. So don't count on it being the best when it comes to customer service. The last experience I had with a cashier (unlike their cookies) did put a bad taste in my mouth. (Pun intended.) It's not like I'm a difficult customer. I always know what I want to order before I even approach the counter. But this place is very busy and they appear to have a high turnover when it comes to their staff. It seems I rarely see the same face more than once. It's unfortunate that the cookies themselves and the scent of cookies baking is so welcoming but the staff, well...not so much.The inside of the building has a seating area with tables but it's pretty small and tight, so don't plan on bringing large groups here. Well unless you don't mind being crammed and standing up. Most people take their baked goodies to go and I suggest you do too.In conclusion:  If you are looking for the perfect cookie, go to the Pacific Cookie Company. More...

I love getting cookies here. The first thing I do is check what cookies are available that are a day old because it's still worth it. If there isn't anything I like, then I'll get fresh cookies. Since I come from out of town, I usually purchase half a dozen and that satisfies my craving. Chocolate chip walnut, oatmeal, and midnight cookies are my favorite. I highly recommend a visit to this place when you are in the area. More...

Their coffee was great too.They need to do something about those little flies buzzing around though. More...

I'm a huge snacker. When a talent of ours brought in a big box of cookies, I was super excited. A sweet afternoon treat! She arrived on Wednesday, October 11th around 3pm.*Lemon Drop: A tangy variation of the classic sugar cookie made with creamery butter and pure lemon extract*Oatmeal Raisin: Just like Grandma used to make. It's a delightful old-fashioned classic made with plump California raisins*Snickerdoodle: Cinnamon cookie with a whimsical name, A product of the American farm made with creamery butter and cinnamonThe box had a variety of cookies, but these were the ones I tried. They were all soft with a nice chew. Some varieties were slightly crumbly which I don't prefer, but they all had great flavor. Especially  the snickerdoodle. If I had more stomach room, I probably would have tried even more cookies. Unfortunately, my eyes are always bigger than my stomach.Glad we got to try this bakery in Santa Cruz. I do love my cookies!

The possibilities are endless at the pacific cookie company!! Ice cream Sando: Dr midnight (triple choc) with their peanut butter ice cream and white choc macadamia nut cookie on the bottom. That's just one combination! The cookies are great, I have a feeling they used to do a lot more business when gluten wasn't considered the plague. They do offer a few gluten free options, and it seems like it's a company they buy from, so they don't make gf in house. More...

I went to Pacific Cookie Company on a Saturday afternoon. I had been wandering up and down Pacific and was in the mood for a sweet snack. I came in and wasn't too sure what I wanted. I opted for the Chocolate Dipped Macaroon. In hindsight, I think I should've gotten it not dipped in chocolate, because I really preferred that half of the cookie. I felt like it was a pretty good deal, as the cookie was about the size of my fist and under $2. It's probably about what I would pay at a bake sale, only better quality and a bigger cookie. I'll definitely be coming back to try out their different cookies and find my favorite. Then walking up and down Pacific Ave to burn of some calories. More...

We were wandering downtown after my daughters soccer game and you could smell the cookies baking a block away.Once you enter the cookie counter is right in front of you and there were plenty of attendants to assist.  The line went super fast. They are very generous with samples, dare I say, too generous. Very nice staff. If you are not into cookies they do scoop Marianne's Ice Cream.We ordered a twelve pack of cookies to go. I did eat a cookie in the store, the Cahhootz (white chocolate and macadamia). The cookie was buttery and moist and quite large. The white chocolate and macadamia were generous. Just an outstanding cookie.The rest of the cookies, even though they weren't fresh out of the oven,  were just as fantastic. Do yourself a favor and give this place a chance. More...

I'm a Diddy Riese yelp.com/biz/diddy-riese… (LA) kinda gal, but I can't really play favorites when it comes to cookies. We ordered:- Snickerdoodle- Lemon Drop- Chocolate Chip- Peanut Butter- Peanut Butter w/ Chocolate ChipO M GI loved all of them, except for the peanut butter ones. But that's more so personal preference.We were lucky enough to get Snickerdoodle freshly baked right off the rack and it was amazing. Soft, chewy and moist. Lemon was amazing too with great lemon flavors. And you can't go wrong with the classic Chocolate Chip. All of their cookies are on the soft side, which is my favorite. Their prices don't beat out Diddy Riese, but they're not too bad.20 out of 10 I'd come back. More...

I happened to be in town with a school group and we ended up here for dessert. I now remember I have ordered cookies from this company before when I lived in another state. I was reminded that these are probably some of the best cookies you will ever eat. I had the walnut chocolate chip today. I think I will go back tomorrow for the peanut butter chocolate chip too. Fresh and yummy! Order some, you will thank me later! More...

Just figured I'd update, so the review looked newer, though I don't *actually* have any updates, except that I was back downtown while visiting family in Santa Cruz, and had to pop in here and get an ice cream sandwich yesterday, and they are still just as fantastic as I remembered them being growing up here. They haven't changed really at all - still amazing delicious cookies, still way too many choices if you're going for an ice cream sandwich (which uses Marianne's ice cream, which is also independently fantastic), still great prices (obviously the prices are up a bit from when I was a kid, but still - 3.50 for two fantastic cookies of your choice, with fantastic ice cream of your choice in between, that's a fantastic deal, especially in a place like Santa Cruz.) I had coffee fudge ice cream between a mint chocolate and a double chocolate cookie, and it was pretty much heaven, just as I expected it would be. More...

These are good cookies. I highly recommend the classic chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. As a chocolate lover, I also got the Dr. Midnight. I'll probably just stick to the chocolate chip next time, as the Dr. Midnight cookie itself wasn't super flavorful. Can't wait to come back and try different flavors! Also, the man working there was super polite and cheerful. Not a bad touch. More...

I have been coming here since a UC student back in the 80's. The aroma of the freshly baked cookies is what always draws me in. I love the day old cookie bags (reduced price) on the shelf by the front door. Yesterday I noticed a '2' on some bags. Those are the two day old ones which are even cheaper. I can eat the half dozen oatmeal raisin cookies in no time. So many great flavors. Haven't tried the ice cream--too busy with the cookies. Def a Santa Cruz institution. More...

PCC is one of the few reasons why I lived in Santa Cruz. Before I leave SC I have to make a stop over here and buy at least a dozen. I also buy these cookies right before I go to the movies down the block. Two cool things about this place are they have a sale for the day old cookies, that way you know they don't use old batches, and they also can chocolate dip your cookies I believe for 50 or 75 cents more. :-) More...

Best cookies ever. The lemon one is specifically amazing. The edges are a little crispy with the middle being tender, and a sweet sprinkling of sugar on top to round it out. If you're able to, you can grab a bag of 6 day olds for a little over $5, which is the way to go. More...

I rarely buy cookies because I'm almost always disappointed but my cousin recommended this place to me and cookies had been in the back of my mind for a few days. I tried the white chocolate macadamia nut cookie (the "cahootz" I believe ) and immediately fell in love. I was pleasantly surprised by this cookie shop, really. The prices were a bit unpleasant for my tastes (over $1 for a single cookie; I'm a cheapskate), but I loooved the cookie I tried regardless. That's always my go to cookie, when I do choose to buy one, and if a place can make that one well then it's a new favorite place to buy cookies! Here's to a new favorite place! More...

[Out of Towner Review]No one NEEDS a choco dipped cookie.....but everyone WANTS one! Duh! I knew a cookie sounded amazing after a nice lunch. So we walked over and headed in, to find that they are all about dipping cookies in chocolate.We aren't ones to turn away from that. We perused the cookie case, asked a few questions, then both made our decisions. Him - Choco chip dipped, Her - Peanut Butter dipped.Both were amazing and they weren't too pricey. We did get a kick out of the fact that their tip jar is full of water (and money) so that people don't steal it. I guess they've had issues, so sad!The staff were sweet, quick to help, and easy to chat with. They did laugh at our suggestion of having samples ;)Cookies how you didn't know you needed them!

This is just like it says in the name a cookie specific bakery located right on the main drag of pacific ave (downtown santa cruz).Parking is street only, which means there is no parking. You'll be better served (parking wise) by selecting one of the many surface lots/parking garages scattered around the block.There is a small seating area inside, about a half dozen unremarkable table and chair options. Most chose to stroll outside with their cookie of choice. As far as the menu goes it's cookies. Sure there is a small selection on ice cream and coffee, but this place is all about the cookies. There are not quite a dozen not terribly adventurous cookie choices-chocolate chip, chocolate chip with peanut butter, chocolate chip with cranberry, mint chip, white chocolate chip, chocolate chip with almond.........you get the idea. Snickerdoodle, sugar and chocolate  w/o chips are available for you communists what don't like chocolate chips. While the selection isn't any too dramatic they do the basics very very well. The cookies run just over a dollar each with slight discount if you buy three or more.  It's possibly the best  way to spend a dollar on the downtown strip. More...

The smell of freshly baked cookies drew me in and I'm happy I did. I saw the yelp check in for a free cookie with purchase so I decided to give them a try. I'm very picky when it comes to cookies and I'd much rather bake them at home.I picked one and my boyfriend picked two (he couldn't resist). First you have to know I'm a chocolate lover and I thought the mint chocolate was perfect! The chocolate wasn't too sweet nor too bitter. Almond Joe- almonds and milk chocolate chipMint condition- chocolate cookie with mint chipsCahootz- white chocolate and macadamia nutsThe consistency of the cookies were in between soft, chewy and crispy. After a day in an air-sealed container, they still tasted fresh. More...

We ordered a snickerdoodle, peanutbutter chocolate chips and regular chocolate chip cookies. The snickerdoodle was really good, it's soft and chewy. Plus it had a lot of cinnamon flavor in it. However, the peanutbutter one wasn't very good, it was too crumbly but it did have strong peanut flavor. And the regular chocolate chip, I think it's ok but my wife liked it. Generally the staff are super friendly and the price is pretty reasonable as well. They carry lots of other flavors and combination in the store, will definitely come back to try the others if and when we come to Santa Cruz. More...

What's one perk about "checking in" at restaurants through Yelp besides exposing your exact location to potential creepers?  Freebies!  Buy one cookie, check in, and get a cookie for free!   Aside from that, these cookies are super inexpensive and good.  It's the perfect cookie size with the right texture.

Probably among the best cookies I've ever had anywhere ever. They're always fresh, soft, chewy and delicious. Just walking by the door, I always catch a huge whiff of a fresh batch of cookies being baked and feel the itch to get a cookie. I mean seriously, wide selection of different cookies (I personally like their snickerdoodles best). Everyone is also super friendly and patient for those days when I'm not sure what I want. If you're feeling unadventurous their chocolate chip is seriously a great pick always, and if you're feeling a little more daring they've got something for you too.And then if you're ever having trouble deciding between, iono, a chocolate chip cookie or a peanut butter one, they have a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie, which is absolutely crazy and tastes as good as it sounds, if you're into that.

I made a joke to my sister before walking in that cookie shops are dangerous since they smell so good and we would probably end up buying something. I actually had no intention of buying and have pretty good self control when it comes to not eating cookies. Then we walk inside and, one, it does smell AMAZING; two, our mom immediately wanted to buy cookies.There is an offer on yelp of if you make a purchase, you get a free cookies  so buy one cookies get one free!! Take advantage of it!! The first time we went there, we got Dr. Midnight and a snickerdoodle. My mom and sister got them, but for the purpose of reviews only ;) I tried a bite of each.Snickerdoodle: moist, has that nice flavor that results from cream of tartar, but not quite cinnamon-y enough for me. it was decent though!!Dr. Midnight: CHOCOLATE INTENSITY. Chocolate cookie with chocolate chips.It was like a brownie cookie, super moist and decadent.I know what I want next time too: the macadamia white chocolate and the almond joe cookie, apparently the staff favorite. I will update this post after trying them... More...

I ordered a chocolate chip cookie and a chocolate dipped cookie. The price of the cookie was a little over a dollar each, which makes it very affordable.  We were here around 5 PM on a Saturday. My problem was it was cold and hard to chew. They were still good when cold, so I can only imagine how amazing it would be if it was baked fresh!My friend had ordered theirs heated up, which I totally would recommend! I only wished the employees offered the option to us, rather then my friends asking based upon my comment of it being too cold. More...

Local, family owned company which makes delicious cookies for a reasonable price! Was able to order bulk cookies for our wedding as a treat for guests to take home. We got 5 different flavors, all individually wrapped so they could be set outside on a tray during the reception and everyone LOVED them. The purchasing experience was very convenient- I simply called them to place the order a few days beforehand and arranged for our pick up date/time. They sent an email confirmation with the details. As it turns out, all the ladies in the office are amazingly kind and helpful- they were closing an hour early on Memorial Day weekend and called me to make sure we'd be there in time to pick them up, but if not, were willing to wait a few extra minutes for my fiance to arrive. Would totally recommend these folks! More...

I was exploring downtown Santa Cruz for the first time and glad I found this place to munch on some cookies while I walked. I had my eyes set on the macaroon, and it was the perfect amount of coconut that was also quite chewy. I used the free cookie deal with ant purchase deal and decided to try something completely new by getting the Mexican chocolate cookie. I definitely did not expect the spicy kick to it, wish I had milk to go along with it. Maybe a little heads up about the spicy part of it. Otherwise, it's a great atmosphere and staff were nice!

Best cookies in Santa Cruz, and I'd rank it top 5 in best cookie-only shops I've been into in the US, which puts it up there world wide. Giving hot cookie in the Castro a run.  No joke! I'll remember the ginger spice and chocolate chip with walnuts fondly. Also refreshing they've stuck with a model that allows you to get a small and cheap dessert if you want 1 cookie, or get a few if you want to indulge, instead of moving into a higher price for each one.

Every time we find ourselves in (or passing through) Santa Cruz we always plan a stop at Pacific Cookie Company to pick up some cookies to take home. We've sampled many of the varieties which are all delicious but our personal favorite is the ginger spice. I think this is the best ginger cookie we've ever had. We buy a baker's dozen and freeze them when we get home to enjoy in the days to follow.They also sell Marianne's ice cream as well. A sugar cone of their 10-20 is a must, especially if you are a caramel fan.The people behind the counter are always friendly and helpful. Leave a tip in the fishbowl. They deserve it. More...

I do not understand why they do not have a Pacific Cookie Company in Hawaii when it is in the middle of the Pacific.  Someone tell the owner of this company to open a store in Hawaii to legitimize its name and also so I can stop crying at night. One could easily underestimate this place because honestly, Pacific Cookie Company is not the most appealing name for a cookie store.  I could say the name 10 times and forget it the next day.  Also the interior design did not draw me in any way.  Instead, I was captured by the classic heavenly aroma of freshly baked cookies.  At the time I was in Santa Cruz, it was raining and freezing cold.  The thought of biting into a warm chewy cookie immediately replaced my complaints of the dismal weather.  The first cookie I tried was the "mint condition."  I ordered it not only for its creative name, but because it was such a good looking cookie.  You cannot miss it.  It basically looks like Subway's double chocolate chip cookies with adorable mint green chips in it.  It is as good as it looks my friends.  The second cookie I tried was the Snickerdoodle, which I typically hate.  In fact, I have never tried a good Snickerdoodle...until I came here. I believe its texture won me over.  It reminded me of these butter cookies I devoured when I was a child, and thus, I would not be surprised if there was a ton of shortening in the batter.  It was the perfect complement to my coffee.  Lastly, (I came here twice before leaving Santa Cruz) I had the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookie.  I clearly do not have to explain why this cookie is amazing because peanut butter can do no wrong....unless you're allergic to nuts....then it can do a lot of wrong.  Bottom line: Be a smart cookie and try this place...you will not regret it!  Also Yelp offers a free cookie with any purchase for your first check-in.  Dealzzzzz.

Wow! These cookies are outrageously delicious. Recommended by one of my students who lives in Santa Cruz, I decided to give them a try with our recent graduation ceremony held in Salinas. I ordered enough to feed over 600 people and everyone went away happy. I ordered a variety, with my favorite being Almond Joy. Check out their fabulous website...I love the section "Meet Our Cookies."  Another plus: they neatly and compactly boxed all those dozens of cookies and delivered them to us on the day of the event! I couldn't ask for better service or a better cookie!! I'm already looking forward to our next graduation!! More...

There's also the bakery in the Sash Mill where you can buy 'reject' cookies at a deep discount. It can be hard to find, but it's in the back of the Sash Mill complex. More...

I'm a self proclaimed cookie monster and I was thrilled when my sister brought us to this place!  They've got a good selection of cookies and they are reasonably priced a just over $1 per cookie (not to mention they are good sized!).  Since I was with the family, I got to try a number of different flavors- chocolate chip, lemon, peanut butter chocolate chip, etc.  All the cookies were pretty solid- I couldn't say these were the best cookies I've ever had but they certainly were good and a good value as well!  A nice place to stop by for a sweet treat that won't break the bank!

No human should be able to pass by a cookie store and simply ignore it. No one! Even if we just pigged out on lunch, we had to stop by.The layout is simple. Choose from one of the freshly made cookies (ask for the freshest batch when you go in), choose a Marianne's Ice cream supplement, and be off with a delicious dessert.We had the chocolate-dipped cookie as well as the Almond Joe, both of which were chewy and delicious. Not the best cookie I've ever had, but it can hold its own.Best of all, they have great gift sets with fancy packaging. We snagged one as a gift for our Airbnb host--it was both thoughtful and affordable.---Distinguishing factor: The cookie and ice cream smell alone will attract anyone, adult or child, like bees to honey.

I stop in all the time to get a cookie or to take home a bakers dozen. They have a great variety of cookie flavors to choose from. My all time favorite is the classic chocolate chip cookie. The Dr. Midnight and the coconut macaroons are both fantastic as well. It's a great stop for a sweet treat downtown. More...

Stopped by here after an early lunch today. We ordered a good amount of cookies to bring home and let everyone try. The chocolate chip cookies were very good! Haven't tried the rest but you should stop here if you want a quick cookie fix :) More...

Delicious cookies at reasonable prices. The cookies weren't amazing but still pretty darn good. I assume they make a large batch of dough and bake them throughout the week. I was surprised by their selection. They had at least 10-13 different types. My favorite was the chocolate chip (real original) followed by the lemon drop. Mint chocolate was weak sauce.  Best part was they were only $1.10 a piece.  They are on the smaller end which is nice since you can try a couple different types. More...

I had their cookies first in Berkeley, so I knew it was quality stuff. It's $1.10 for a cookie and only $11.95 for a baker's dozen. That's pretty damn cheap when we're talking about massive cookies that hold for a decent amount of time. They also have discounts on day-before goodies, but you have to get here quickly to snag those. My favorites? Snickerdoodle and chocolate chip. I know. Plain Jane. What can I say? I love cinnamon, and everyone loves a classic. Cookies are slightly crispy on the edges and perfectly soft closer to the center. If you get here as new batches are coming out, well then, you're about to have a real treat. They even do ice cream sandwiches with Marianne's. The only downside I would say is that as good as these cookies are fresh, they don't hold after a few hours, so if you're getting an older batch, or you want to bring some for a friend, they're not going to be very soft, which means the recipe could use a little fine tuning.

This is one of those places that is such a hidden gem that you don't want to share the secret with anyone.Well, now that I've moved far far away (sad face.), I'm telling the whole world about this place. This is not the Pacific Cookie company store that is in actual downtown Santa Cruz. Rather, this place is tucked away in an unsuspecting building where their "reject" cookies are housed.REJECT COOKIES They all look and taste pretty damn good to me! Never stale and perfectly chewy.$0.25 ea for the smaller cookies, $0.50 for the larger ones. WHAT A STEAL. Flavors include chocolate chip, dr. midnight (chocolate on chocolate!!), lemon drop, mint condition, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and snickerdoodle (my favorite). I never fail to get excited when I walk through the door and see all the cookies displayed in all their glory. Just grab a plastic bag and start shoppin'!Oh, this place is CASH ONLY. Save your dollar bills! More...

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I came in to the place to get a late night treat.  We love their huge selection of cookies!  My favorite cookie they make is a chocolate cookie with mint chips, yummy!  The cookies are made fresh daily.  Day old cookies are discounted.  Prices are reasonable at about $1 per cookie.  There are also cookie ice cream sandwiches - where you can pick your favorite cookie and ice cream for a delicious treat.  I am yet to try one of them but I hope eventually to.  There are also cookie ice cream sundaes.  Pros:-large selection of cookies made fresh daily-reasonable prices-great group of staff-open till lateCons:-Nothing!

When traveling through Downtown Santa Cruz, my husband and I decided to stop in for a snack. We could smell the fresh baked cookie smell wafting from the open doors. When we got inside, we were immediately impressed by the massive amount of cookie options and that most of their cookies also are offered as dipped in chocolate. How can we resist more chocolate?! We selected the dipped peanut butter with chocolate chips and dipped white chocolate chip macadamia nuts. We were not disappointed. The cookie was baked fresh, crunchy on the outside with remaining warm and gooey on the inside. When I realized they offered a free cookie with check in on Yelp, I bought some water to wash it down and the extra cookie to go was a great bonus. I would definitely stop in to check out this place. Next time I was to try the cookie ice cream sandwich! More...

Several locations in the Santa Cruz area. Came in to buy for coworkers. Staff was friendly and accommodating to explain something's about the shop. Was able to purchase a bulk of cookies for a reasonable price. Choices include the classic cookies (chocolate chip, white chocolate macadamia, oatmeals) and house specials (one had lemon coconut). Soft and right amount of density. Plenty fresh and lots to enjoy. Coworkers enjoyed the cookies for being purchased from a professional bakery. Good: flavor selections, reasonable priced, and friendly bakers. Bad: not located closer to home for me. I'd stop in again for sure. More...

Wow!! For $1.10 a cookie, it's pretty near impossible to leave here anything less than happy and satisfied. The aroma of the butter, chocolate and dough is just breathtaking -- not to mention the 1 free cookie with any purchase with a Yelp check-in -- total #WIN-WIN!All the cookies are delicious, buttery soft chewy centers, with a subtle crunch on the edge. Perfect and flawless, truly!My favorites: Almond Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, Ginger Snap, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip w/ Walnuts. But for $1.10 each, you should just buy them all and throw a happy cookie tasting party! Service is speedy and friendly. Easily one of the BEST cookie experiences ever! More...

So glad we found this place for an after dinner treat for the kids. Unfortunately I didn't have my phone with me so I didn't know about the Yelp check in to get a free cookie. I am picky when it comes to cookies since I bake my own. These were delicious! Tried the chocolate chip plain & with walnuts, the mint chocolate cookie(kids loved), and the seasonal sugar cookie with dried cherry. Nice and chewy the way I like them & not doughy which I've encountered frequently. Will definitely come again when visiting Santa Cruz. More...

Cookies are yummy! They have different cookies that are half dipped in chocolate. I recommend the dipped Chocolate Chip cookie or Snickerdoodle. Both equally delicious. Staff is nice. Conveniently located downtown SC. Also! On the wall to the right when you first walk in they have "day old cookies" bagged up for a cheaper price. Still just as tasty! More...

We were very excited to check out this place, and it did not disappoint. We both got the chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies, and they were absolutely delicious. We were sad we weren't able to go to the warehouse to see the magic in action, but it was probably a blessing for our waist lines because we would have bought more! Glad this place is somewhat local, hope to find these cookies in the East Bay. More...

Loved this little cookie shop! The staff was very nice, and helpful with cookie selection since they had a wide variety! No rushing here. We tried the classic chocolate chip, lemon, and a coconut macaroon. All were AMAZING!  Perfectly cooked with a soft middle and slightly crispy edge. The lemon cookie was a refreshing sweet and light cookie that complimented tea perfectly. The coconut macaroons were perfectly proportioned and the chocolate chip was not too sweet as they can be at other shops. Take a stroll in downtown Santa Cruz and forget the taffy - get th cookies!Also, extra sweet, if you check in you get a free cookie with purchase. More...

Cookies were my breakfast in college... unfortunately I wasn't able to eat Pacific Cookie Company cookies for breakfast unless I was lucky enough to find it in the dining halls of UCSC. Now you know my loyalty to Santa Cruz :). This business started in Santa Cruz on Pacific Garden Mall.Pacific Cookie Company gets the texture right. Even the day-old cookies are still chewy and that's what makes these cookies so alluring. It's too hard for me to not finish all six of those day-old cookies in the hour I buy them!I like the Dr. Midnight (Dark chocolate) and Mint Condition (mint chocolate). Of course they've got other flavors so you don't oversaturate yourself on the chocolate-y cookies. More...

Really really good cookies. They have a lot of random fun flavors here but I encourage you to stick with the classics. The triple chocolate was delicious choco chip and white choco macadamia nut were really good too.Their cookies are pretty sweet though so find yourself some cold milk or something to help get through the seeetness.

Tried their cookies and fell in love with them. The cookies are very soft in the inside and crunchy on the outside, just the way I like it. My favorite flavor is the mint condition which is one of the best in its kind. Sadly, I didn't have the opportunity of trying other things like the ice cream sandwiches or the coconut macaroons. However, one great thing about them is that in order to avoid wasting such great cookies, they pack little bags of 6 cookies that are not fresh made from the day (usually cookies from very early in the morning or the day before) and sell them for $4.95, which is very good deal.

1.10 ea now.  combines with Marianne's ice cream but could join forces with Mission Hill Creamery down the street.  chocolate chip walnut -- thick and relatively soft with harder edges, tasty and buttery inside.  almond joe =  toasted almonds, Guittard chocolate and coconut, light on the coconut, also thicker with chunks which break off.  store also in Berkeley.

The Pacific Cookie Company is the only place I know of, thus far, that freshly bakes cookies that are covered in chocolate. This place is literally like heaven on earth. I can smell the sweetness from a block away every time I'm in downtown Santa Cruz. I typically select the mint chocolate chip cookie covered in chocolate, and occasionally the walnut chocolate chip cookie covered in chocolate. You can also purchase a bag of cookies that are a day old for a reduced price. By the way, they also sell ice cream that is just as good as the cookies. Wish many more food items could be covered in chocolate. Life would be so much sweeter! More...
