This factory is tucked in an alley off of a main street in Chinatown, but just look for the lines of tourists, and you won't miss it. The extent of sightseeing is the ability to see old Chinese ladies hand-forming fortune cookies by taking the...More

Tiny little shop tucked in an alleyway. Could miss it if not paying attention. Several elderly women working on old-school machines that work magic. This work requires manual dexterity. It was fascinating to watch this art. Samples given. Lots of different kinds of cookies available...More

Growing up in the Bay Area, we would always go to Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf and of course Chinatown for field trips and weekend fun. A part of that was stopping by the factory to get a bag. I have always loved getting the flat...More

Store was hard to find. I had to walk down an alley. Cookies were fresh and good. 5.00 for the bag I got. Would definitely visit again when in town.

It's worth the stop you will see Fortune Cookies made. They also sell them . It's part of the tours in China Town. Well worth it. I purchase a bag of fortune cookies - they were very fresh! Great stop for Kids.

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

I don't know for sure, but would guess normal business hours. Google Maps says 8am-6pm, 7 days a week. No tour, but you can see them pressing the cookies when you step inside. Very small place.
