The best of everything... right here!

Visit the Cookie Jar for delicious cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts, bread... really any sweet you could ask for! Staff are friendly, and the bakery is located near Fort Williams State Park. Stop in and try a bite!

My husband and I stopped for a coffee and one last blueberry sweet before heading to the airport and were not disappointed. Big selection of pastries and several coffee flavors. Tried the blueberry turnover and found it fresh and very tasty! They have a few small tables to enjoy your pastries if preferred. Warning- many tempting goods that make it... More

The Cookie Jar is a required stop whenever our cycling loop takes us through Cape Elizabeth. This morning's selection was a delicious blueberry muffin and blueberry coffee. My cycling friend had the biggest Boston creme donut I had ever seen. From fresh baked breads to most every pastry imaginable, the selection is wide.

A full service bakery which is almost always busy. Everyone has a different favorite but the donuts are excellent along with great cupcakes. Whoopie Pies are also among the best in the area. Not far from historic Portland Head Light and Bug Light Park. Take out or enjoy a small table area.

I was driving by early and decided to just run in and try a donut. Wow I had this monstrous glazed donut with a thick ribbon of chocolate frosting on it! What! It was out of this world! I'm sure everything else in there is as good, but I only had one donut!!!!

A trip to Maine is not complete unless you've made a stop by the cookie jar pantry in quaint Cape Elizabeth. The filled cookies are our favorites. So good that we've packed them in luggage back to the Midwest.

My family and I went for donuts and they were amazing. Very fresh and soft and just the right amount of glaze or filling. The coffee was good but just your basic hot or iced. The service was polite and despite them being busy they had plenty of staff to be able to assist costumers quickly.

On the advice of friends we took about a 1/2hr drive. It was well worth that! Purchased the lobster sugar cookie, Italian cookies, and chocolate chip! Absolutely delicious

The Cookie Jar is a standard every year we visit Maine. Do yourself a favor and try the chocolate coconut donuts. Amazing pastries and fabulous coffee. We make two or three trips here every summer.
