Tiny place in an alley, you literally get to walk 5 steps in and that’s it. More than 4 people in will be too much. You will see 2 asian ladies folding the cookies and 1 guy giving out samples of unfolded cookies. No one...More

In the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown is the tiny fortune cookie factory but it is worth your time. Seeing how these two ladies fold fortunes into the cookies was really fascinating. The taste of hot fresh cookies gave me a new appreciation for the...More

Normally Fortune Cookies would not be a search for item, however, we were in SF Chinatown! We found the location easily and entered. Watching the women make the cookies was interesting but even more so was the flow of people who came into the store....More

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.
