We stopped here on our honeymoon while traveling along the Maine coast. The store is adorable and the cream horns are to die for! I used to work in a bakery so I'm used to the protocol. The young girls behind the counter were less than enthusiastic and gave us the impression that we were bothering them or it was too much trouble to help us when we asked a couple of questions about the doughnuts. The doughnuts were yummy and the cream horn was my hubby's favorite. Overall a good stop, but don't ask questions, they frown on that apparently.

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!

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.

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

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.
