The Cookie Jar, a good Fairbanks Restaurant with some sweet treats!

This local restaurant offers some great food at typical (For Fairbanks) prices. Try the chicken fried steak, or one of there many hamburgers. The CARROT CAKE its out of this world for dessert! There breakfast selection is excellent. They also make cinnamon rolls and cookies that are the BOMB!

We had breakfast here and it was fantastic! Their bakery items were incredible! Great service and a great experience. We could have ordered one meal and it would have filled all four of us. I would highly recommend!!

Spouse and I had soup and salads here last week, they were good/ok. Nothing to make a special trip to this restaurant for. However, we split a large piece of coconut cream pie, it was to die for. Gobs and gobs of REAL whipped cream, not the crappy Cool Whip you often get masquerading as real whipped cream on desserts... More

OMG...my grandma would be proud of the cookies they make and sell there! Seriously...amazing flavor without being to gagging rich! However, they forgot to put the Bacon on my Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap. Which was the main thing I wanted on the wrap. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars. The herb tortilla was also a nice, interesting touch. Unfortunately,... More

Been here a handful of times and never had a complaint. The staff is alwasy so friendly, food is always good. I recommend getting anything breakfast, but they have good lunch items too. I also love the little bakery like set up when you first walk in the door.

The place is cute-ish, home style. The problem is that their menu is huge with all kinds of food none of which are excellent. I like that they serve breakfast all day, but it's not a diner. There are tons of options - definitely something for everyone, but the food was just alright. I had a vegetable lasagna with "garlic... More

We had two meals here and were pleased with the quality of the food. Service however was a tad slow and we waited quite awhile to be seated in a half full restaurant. Not ideal, but as I said the food did make up for it somewhat. Try their burgers, which I thought were good.

Ever feel like getting a taste of delicious food and friendly people to get a break from the travails of travels. At The Cookie Jar, you've found this place. You might find similar food at other places in Fairbanks (although that probability is small) but you certainly won't find the same staff. We were a family of 4 adults and... More

I ate breakfast here with a business group. The server was friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food was delicious, with generous portions and quick preparation. The atmosphere can best be characterized as frontier diner, very relaxed and friendly, and apparently a popular place with the locals.

The rest of the breakfast was also terrific. Also went for dinner. Beerock was great, too, but stay away from iced tea and halibut.
