  • My wife and I stumbled upon the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Co while on a tour of Chinatown in SF found in a Fodor's Guide. As soon as we got close, we could smell the cookies baking. We stopped in and...  more »
  • I didn't know I like fortune cookies until I ate the ones here. They're light, crispy, shatter in your mouth when you bite into them, and just sweet enough. OMG. I ate an entire small bag by myself. I...  more »
  • Tucked down an alley is this tiny little door where you can see your fortunes come to life. I think there's 3 machines spitting out fortune cookies. The ladies are making them by hand and will likely ...  more »

  • Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory is a very small hole in the wall hidden in an alley. A small gem in Chinatown. I always enjoy stopping here when I can. I love the free samples, the varieties of Fortune Cookies are awesome as well. One of the best things is the ability to buy bottled water for $1! Pretty sure it's the cheapest water in San Francisco! You can get a small bag of fortune cookies, a mixed bag of vanilla and chocolate, an extra-large fortune cookie, or even fortune cookies with adult fortunes inside! (I really am curious about the last option.) It's also very intriguing to see the fortune cookies be made! It looks like they have also a new policy of charging $0.50/picture. I highly recommend stopping here when you're in Chinatown. Definitely a must at least once!
  • A fun little random stop-off in Chinatown! The 'free tours' line is a bit much, as this is really just one small room, but it's great to see how the fortune cookie-making process is actually done (surprisingly simple, or maybe they just make it look that way). You can buy huge bags of cookies, including novelty flavours and messages! Fun for ten minutes' diversion.
  • Awesome place to visit in China Town that you can get unique and custom fortune cookies from! Fresh off the machines, cool to see the process, and so many varieties! Down a sketchy alley way that can easily be overlooked, but Google Maps will guide you correctly.
  • What I've Tried - Fortune Coins - Fortune Cookies - Chocolate Fortune Cookies Always a nice place to stop by if you're in Chinatown. They let you sample and give you fresh free fortune cookies when your make a purchase! You can customize your own fortunes if you pleased as well!
  • As a tourist, you only need about 5 - 10 minutes here. Don't expect a tour or any info by the folks working here (after all, they are working); however, they will give you free cookies to try and they are yummy! It's a tight space and there can be lineups within the factory but those die down fast so don't be discouraged. It's really cool to see an all mechanical machine producing the cookies and how fast they get made! The people working there don't like you taking there pictures so please be mindful. Also, they sell packs of cookies (both big and small) that are pretty cheap. FYI the entrance is not wheelchair friendly and the space inside is very tight.
