Kids under the age of 8 are not allowed (this is not Willy Wonka’s factory). You must put away jewelry, watches, loose objects, cameras and cellphones. You do have to wear the provided hair net, beard guard (that goes for you too, Brian Wilson) and earplugs.

Valencia Street 1

We opened our first factory and café on Valencia Street in 2012 to share the bean-to-bar chocolate-making experience with visitors. We bought, built, and repurposed machinery to perform every step of the process, and constructed an open space where guests may enjoy a front-row seat. To this day, we invite Valencia Street visitors to come in and stay a while — sample our single-origin chocolate bars, savor a steaming mug of House Hot Chocolate, and watch our chocolate makers at work.

Café & Pastries

Our Kitchen team bakes fresh cookies and pastries with our single-origin chocolate each day. We also offer made-to-order hot chocolates, Ritual coffee drinks, frozen hot chocolate, horchata, and more.

Is it Cash Only?

No it's not. I went there in February and was able to pay with my card.

Can you just show up to tour the factory or do you have to make some sort of reservation?

You can walk into the shop. Be prepared to wait. And "factory" is perhaps a little grand of a word to use. It's quite quaint.

Came here for the first time with my family, I've always heard about it but never came. They have so many different types of fortune cookies and different sizes. Tons of famous celebrities have came and there are pictures all over their wall. We saw two ladies up at front, one was packaging the fortune cookies and the other was making them. It was very cool to see the process. We were also offered a fortune cookie that was circular shaped!

Another one of the first places i've tried in SF. The place looks nice and definitely gives China vibes. As i was new to SF at the time though, i was quite surprised when after my purchase, the lady didn't even offer to give me my change - i thought maybe it's the culture, but a few months in this city disproves that, so ‍. Anyway - the fortune cookie tasted as expected, but not really worth the price, in my view. Also, the fortunes weren't even attempts at fortune quotes - as you can see from my video.

Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory made my wedding even more special with their fantastic fortune cookies! We chose matcha green tea and strawberry flavors, and they were a huge hit with our guests. The best part was being able to add our own personalized fortunes inside each cookie. The factory also provided adorable colorful reusable bags for pick-up, adding a charming touch to the whole experience. As a bonus, they gave us a free bag of their delicious flat fortune cookies, which didn't last long at home--they were that good! For anyone considering ordering from Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory, I recommend placing your order at least two weeks in advance to ensure everything is ready on time. Despite this recommendation, they impressively completed our order within a week. Their attention to detail and delicious cookies made our celebration truly memorable.

The Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory is a hidden gem tucked away in Chinatown. Let me share my delightful encounter: Handcrafted Perfection: Since 1962, this legendary factory has been hand-making approximately 10,000 fresh fortune cookies daily. The mesmerizing process unfolds on large rotating cast iron griddles. The fortune cookies here far surpass the usual ones found in Chinese restaurants. They're extra crispy, delicately thin, and carry a delightful vanilla scent. Flavorful Varieties: While the classic fortune cookies are delightful, I recommend venturing into the green tea-flavored ones or the chocolate-dipped, sprinkle-covered variety. Each bite sparks joy and transports me back to childhood birthday parties. Customizable Messages: The flat cookies, sans fortunes, are surprisingly popular. These little crunchy discs are ideal for snacking. You can even customize the messages inside--perfect for party favors or secret love notes. Conclusion: The Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory remains a timeless delight. Whether you're a local or a curious traveler, this spot offers a sweet escape from the ordinary.

One of the places you MUST visit when in San Fran! Easily accessible and right in the heart of Chinatown, this was just such a fun and nice thing to see! You walk in and it's legit a fortune cookie factory. There was a woman that was working the fortune cookie machine where the wafers were rotated out through. Once they approached the woman, she would grab them and fold it in the appropriate fortune cookie shape and placed them in a separate container. Each time she folded the wafer you could see a piece of paper palmed in her hand which is subtly placed in the cookie during the fold. This old school way also looks like a way to ensure product quality control. Wafers were often skipped and that's what the woman would give us while we were looking through the cookies that would be available for purchase. Yes, you can purchase cookies. All kinds! Flavors include chocolate, matcha and strawberry. You can purchase by the assorted pack or just the traditional fortune cookie in bulk. They also had one giant one that came in a Chinese take out container. The big cookie was consumed by my son when I came home and to our surprise there were two smaller cookies inside of the larger one. And the cookies are delicious! You can tell how fresh they are. They are almost slightly sweeter than what you usually get with your generic take out order. Maybe it's because they are fresher.... What's awesome is that with your purchase you get a scoop of unfolded wafers in your cool tote bag (which could also double as a souvenir). So fun! From what I understand you can get custom messaging if you contact them ahead of time. What I thought was HILARIOUS was that they also had cookies with "X-Rated" messages. I DID NOT buy these but I guess good to know?! Such a fun time and will definitely return here on my next visit.

I've tried coming here several times over a handful of years and always got deterred by the crowds or finding it unexpectedly closed. It's an iconic Chinatown stop where you get a glimpse of the traditional hand methods of the fortune cookie process. You won't be disappointed by the smells and they offer a handful of interesting cookie alternative including fortune cookie flats. It's a nice ode to the Chinese-American culture....if you are patient enough wait through the usual lines of people.

Golden Gate was such a fun experience. I came across this place on TikTok and decided to try it out because I love fortune cookies. When you first walk in, it's like a fortune cookie warehouse. LOL. They are EVERYWHERE, in all flavors. The nice lady also gives you a sample when you walk in. I don't think I have ever had a fresh fortune cookie before, it was literally hot off the press and hadn't even been folded. There's even a little lady hand folding cookies right in the middle of the store. I personally thought that was really cool to see. I got a couple of custom cookies and would have purchased more things, but they were cash only. Overall, this is a super cute experience I would recommend to anyone hanging out and exploring China town.

I knew them before they went viral. I literally grew up in this neighborhood, and would stop by frequently for free samples when I was a kid. I'm so happy to see their little cookie shop become the must-visit tourist spot in Chinatown. They are located in an alley between Washington and Jackson streets. The alley is much cleaned up since my childhood days. As soon as you enter, someone will hand you some fresh off the griddle samples. The shop is very small, but there's quite a variety of cookies, including green tea and chocolate. There are also some x-rated ones, big ones, little ones, and flat ones. There's always someone there hand-folding the cookies as they come off the griddle. I make it a point to visit whenever I'm in Chinatown. A couple years ago they charged a fee to take photos inside, but they seemed to have relaxed that now (I think). It's definitely worth a visit if you're in Chinatown, and grab a bag of fresh cookies.

A must visit for any trip to San Francisco's Chinatown! The Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory is a culturally historic and nostalgic spot to see how fortune cookies are made and to buy some of your own delicious cookies. You have the option of buying regular folded fortune cookies or flat ones (big or small) or even chocolate, green tea, and strawberry flavored ones. You can also choose to make your own fortunes inside - just write and hand the paper to the lady nearby folding the cookies. This only costs $3.50 for two. Plus, it comes with a mini take out box. Initially, I didn't want to buy anything and just wanted to check out the store. But I was hooked after the lady gave me a fresh warm sample. They give everyone a sample of their freshly made cookies, which automatically draws you in bc of how insanely addictive and good it tastes.

Tucked in an alley in Chinatown is the Fortune Cookie Factory where they make fresh fortune cookies. The lady at the entrance handed us a fresh circular cookie. There's an option to write your own fortunes but it got pretty busy on a Thursday so we quickly grabbed the X-rated adult fortune cookies. We were handed our purchase and she dropped several free fresh cookie samples in our bag. Loved the no-nonsense approach!
