You can't go wrong with anything you get here. It's all fresh baked and yummy!! My family would visit weekly to get a treat when we lived in Maine. The sugar cookies and cream horn are my favorites.

If you're coming to Maine you're going to visit Portland Head Light. Do your self a favor and stop into The Cookie Jar on your way. The bakery has been here for years and years and always bakes the best treats around. I love the pumpkin donuts, oh and the red velvet too :) Lemon filled tarts are top notch... More

I've been going to the Cookie Jar for over 40 years and it is the best around! It doesn't get any better than the Glazed Jelly! Cookies, muffins, pastries...all really good.

We just had a fabulous visit to the Cookie Jar! The donuts, cookies and pastries were just perfect. There are several bakeries in the area but this one never disappoints! Thank you Cookie Jar!

Maple cream doughnut. Best doughnut my wife and I have ever had. Staff was out on our second visit but made some especially for us since we came by just for them while visiting from Alabama. Kudos and thanks to them!!!

The Cookie Jar has to be one of the best Bakeries anywhere. As soon as you walk into the place, you want to try everything!!! Everything they make is HUGE & out of this world..... The only complaint we have is the staff could be a little more friendly....

Got to be careful as everything is so good so easy to spend a lot of money and eat more than you should!. You have been warned,...lol...
