On Nov 6, 2020 they opened their first storefront of this all-vegan cookie bakery. Popular cookies include chocolate chip s'mores, marble fudge, and snickerdoodles. Holiday and seasonal specials are frequently added to the lineup. Gluten-free cookies and vegan ice cream by the pint are available as well. Black-owned. Recommended to try the 'birthday cake' cookie and the end of the year 'gingerbread' cookie. Open Wed-Fri 11:00am-4:00pm, Sat-Sun 10:00am-4:00pm. Closed Mon, Tue.

Best Cookies. Ever.

I can’t believe I have never written a review for Maya’s. I have been in love with their cookies since moving to San Diego. They are almost always at the Hillcrest Farmers Market, and I treated myself to a subscription box a few months ago. Even the cookies from the subscription box are fresh and would make a wonderful gift for someone else (or, as I mentioned, yourself)! The cookies are soft, chewy, and absolutely delicious. There are many amazing flavors (including seasonal ones), and I love that it is Black-owned.

There are no cons about these cookies; I have given them to my non-veg family and friends and have all agreed they are simply delicious cookies. They have a brown sugar butterscotch cookie that is so good. I think it’s my all-time favorite cookie.

Treat yourself and try Maya’s!

Famous cookies for a reason

Had their cookies during San Diego Vegan Festival and they live up to the hype!!! I tried their famous smores cookie, chocolate chip cookie, lemon chiffon cookie, and white chocolate macadamia cookie. Out of the 4, my favorite was probably the lemon chiffon but I would be happy having any of them again!

Soft serve and cookies

What a great combo. Oately soft serve was delicious. Enjoyed the cookies as well, not quite as soft as I hoped for but still very good. So many flavors to choose from. Staff was super friendly!

I was gifted the Classic Holiday Collection tin by a family member and all four flavors were great! My favorite was probably the sugar cookie as it was perfectly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Would definitely recommend to vegans and non-vegans!

Fun birthday treat

I received a birthday cookie box in the mail and it made for a great surprise. The cookies came in a cute little tin which made for a cute presentation. The cookies were amazing and I can wait to try the other flavors!

Pros: cute packaging, national shipping

I bought two of their cookies yesterday in Long Beach at a small vegan event. My favorite was the classic chocolate chip but I also loved the marble fudge.

I hope that they will open more storefronts so more people can taste their delish cookies. They do offer shipping also (as of July 2021, shipping from San Diego to the Los Angeles area is $10.00).

Pros: Delish

The Best Cookies in San Diego

Without reservation I'd recommend Maya's Cookies to anyone, vegan or not. My personal favorite is the Birthday Cake, a sugar cookie covered in crunch rainbow sprinkles. Chocolate chip cookie dough can be ordered ahead for pick up as well. Her end of the year gingerbread cookies are not to missed.

Pros: All vegan
