A really good bakery is a rare thing these days. We often hope for the best at bakeries and end up throwing half of the stuff away. The Cookie Jar is a delicious exception. We especially enjoyed the molasses cookies and peanut butter cookies

My son and I stopped in for some cookies on Saturday afternoon and they were great! The staff was friendly and efficient and there was a nice variety of cookies. Give it a try - I highly recommend it!

Oh boy! you can't walk around Bowen's area without smelling these cookies! You have to pop in here and try a couple!

It's a nice place to grab a cookie and affordable. Seating is outside but not limited so you can take to go or stay and eat.

Walking thru decided to stop for some cookies to go. They must bake all day in there to keep up with demand. I had a sugar cookie it was good. If you are looking for some cookies it's the place to go. Many varieties

Friendly staff but the cookies were a let down. I really wanted a good cookie. I tried the snickerdoodle, the ginger, and the peanut butter chocolate chip, and none of them were that good. They were ok, but if you're craving a really good cookie,...More

Traveling Newport in the summer can be challenging but down by Bowen's Wharf this is a nice shady spot where you can grab an ice coffee and have a cookie. Good spot for a rest.

This is a great place to take a quick break from sightseeing. They have delicious cookies and nice little tables outside to sit and people-watch while you eat.

Great little bakery. We tried several different cookies over two days and we all decided the gingerbread cookie was the best. All were good, the gingerbread cookie just stood out. Conveniently located on the wharf. Very reasonable prices.

Ran in to get water for the dog. The smell as you entered was amazing. Had to go back to purchase cookies for later that evening. So glad I did.
