“Old time treats!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

This is a true bakery- real old fashioned methods and ingredients! Biggest donut holes I have ever seen! Had a blueberry best claw and a glazed cinnamon roll- just the right mix of dough/flavoring/icing. Lots of coffee options- all self serve. Daily bread varieties looked delicious and there were lots of
Locals in the shop!

“Really Good Donuts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We heard how amazing their donuts are from the person we rented a house from, so we headed there for breakfast this morning. It was not a lie. The donuts are huge and delicious. Really fresh and crispy as a donut should be. The coffee selection is also excellent. I love really strong coffee, and their dark roast didn't disappoint.

We will be back during our vacation to try other baked goods.

“Another perfect doughnut!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

A wonderful Boston Cream doughnut for me and a lemon filled for my wife. The Cookie jar is a Cape Elizabeth standard.

“Best old school bakery ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Don't come through the door looking for diet food. The Cookie Jar uses REAL sugar and butter and every delectable treat shows it. Their donuts are sublime and as big as your head! If you are traveling with children you must stop for a lobster shaped cookie. Every pie, bread, and cake I've ever purchased there has been a winner.

“Biggest donuts I've ever seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

Bagel size donuts, gigantic cookies, and inventive ingredient combinations. A must stop for anyone heading out to see the Portland head light house. Be sure to hit the sample tray before you order.
