Need items for school bakesale - I usually get fortune cookies from San Francisco, but don't have time to drive into the city. Has anyone ever purchased from Kar Mee Fortune Cookie Bakery in Oakland? Or know of another source for FRESH fortune cookies in Oakland or East Bay? Thanks.

    The kids and I toured the Fortune Cookie Factory (I think that is its only name) at 261 12th St in Oakland. They make fresh cookies and you can customize the fortunes. I'll try to post a photo later.

      There's another fortune cookie factory in Oakland Chinatown (the fringes) at 295 9th St. The sign says Tom's Fortune Cookies. They are open M-F 9am-4pm.

      Haven't been there in ages, but I like the fortune cookies here.

        I get fortune cookies from Kar Mee all the time. I love them and they are WARM AND FRESH. They have free samples, different colors, coins, and error cookies for a great price! They have a older man that works part time that is a sweetheart and everyone is really friendly. They are SO worth it and they have a quick turn round on orders. They are open M-F til 5pm. You can call in your request too, the # is 835-0520.
