“Like doughnuts?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Best doughnut EVER! EVER!
Stop here and enjoy a good cup of coffee, delicious doughnut and newspaper to stay or to go.
You will not be disappointed. Friendly staff and a great way to start your morning.

“The good ole "Cookie Jar"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

I've been going to The Cookie jar for the last 50 years! Nothing put a bigger smile on my face when they reopened after being closed for so many years after a big storm one spring. Everyting tastes the same and everything is delicious! It's nice that they expanded a bit to have some seating for sandwiches and soups as well! I don't know if I can say I have a favorite - everything is scrumptious! OK - Chocolate Coconut Donuts are the best! So moist and delicious. And the raspberry cream turnovers? Mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmm! :)(

“cream turnovers to "die for"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

We were very happy when the Cookie Jar reopened. We missed there fantastic raspberry cream turnovers and creme horns. They are the very best in the area.
We relatives come from califronia, these 2 items are a must have for them.
The Cookie Jar offers fresh and very tasty bakery treats of all sorts.

“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

This is one fantastic bakery. If they don't have it, you don't need it. Everything looks so good you just want to buy one of everything. If you like sweets this bakery is a must.

“Great bakery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

We were driving by and saw the shop and decided to go in. It looked like a "local" eatery and they are normally the best and it didn't disappoint. This bakery was fantastic! I can't name one thing to try, everything they have would be delicious! ENJOY!!
