The only place to go for breakfast in Fairbanks!

We recently visited the Cookie Jar on a weekend filled with bad weather in Fairbanks. We weren't optimistic that they would even be open as many other establishments were closed. We were in luck and man are we impressed! I ordered a country breakfast with eggs, bacon, hash browns and sourdough... read more

I never eat fries, these were really good. I had a monte cristo, could only eat half, my friends had quiche and another had a burger. Great value, great food, if you have someone willing, I would recommend sharing an entree.

Delicious food, good portion sizes. Good place to bring out of town friends or family, good location for business dinner or brunch as well. Kid friendly. Love this place for special occasions or family dinner out. More seating since renovations were completed in 2014. The cinnamon bun and hot chocolate are a must!!

The Cookie Jar Restaurant has become a very popular place and most likely in the top 3 of the Fairbanks area. This is the default place to eat for my wife. It's great for smaller groups to two people. Great menu and really good food. As far as large or manly portions, this place is better suited for the lighter... More

On our 2 week Alaskan road trip, we tried to have seafood every day, either chowder, fish and chips or fish sandwich. That being said, I tried the halibut burger. The meal was good. This is definitely a locals place. I would have tried it a second time.

Food is decent but overpriced and overrated I think. They have standard stuff and it's a reliable choice. If it were $3 less, I would go here a lot more.

We went there in the afternoon. My friend wanted to order a dish served for dinner, then the waitress asked chef and she finally got it. I ordered the Cookie Jar Burger, which was too much for me but I still like it! Highly recommend.

So after seeing this place on Triple D I was very excited to try them out while visiting my daughter. We went for lunch and I had the Meatloaf sandwich and she has a burger. It was OK, nothing to get excited about. I wanted potato salad with my meal but they brought me out fries. I told her about... More

Excellent breakfast food in a cute little building with a great atmosphere. I would definitely go back to try something else on their extensive and well priced menu.
