We stopped here after visiting a restaurant in the area. This shop took us back to an old 1950-1960 neighborhood bakery. Plenty of old time cookies and bakery treats that you can't find in the modern bakeries. Keep up the good work to the owner and staff.

If you have never picked up a Donut or Pastry at the place you need to. They have a pastry called the Cookie Jar Danish and it is awesome. Fair pricing as well as good service.

We did not have to provide dessert because the Cookie Jar provided a large lot of donuts for the guests. Here is why I am posting, Some JERK called in a large order of... More

Reasonably priced local basis bakery... More

Cookie Jar is your typical, old time bakery. No fancy pastries, just the basics, although their cookies, pastries, donuts are good. Coffee is good too. Have 't tried bread or buns...

Had been coming to this bakery for many years, and ordering my kids' birthday cakes here, as well. The friendly, courteous staff are now gone, replaced by rude, impatient waitperson who acts annoyed to be bothered every time we walk in the door. Selection of doughnuts and pastries is now generally skimpy, and are usually out of what we want.... More

We have lived in this area all of our lives and Cookie Jar Bakery was a favorite bakery of my husband and I growing up. Now it has become a favorite of our 3 children. If you are visiting the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, I highly recommend a visit to this delicious multi-generation family owned bakery that has been in business... More

I've been going to the Cookie Jar for the past 40 years. It's great. Get there at 3am for the BEST baked goods you could ever imagine.
