Just stopping by, I purchased three shortbread cookies. They were excellent, and I savored them for days (pretty rich).

My friend and I were very excited to dine here, the food was amazing and at first our waiter was wonderful but then he got a table with a large family and promptly began to ignore us even though he had to walk by us several times to get to them. We got dessert and drinks and very expensive meals,... More

Small place. Can get crowded and a little slow. Good bagels, cheese sandwiches, muffins, coffee. Tables available outside. Ask for Jay the owner, friendly and informative.

Small cookie shop with big flavor. "Soft but firm" cookies bursting with flavor. You can't go wrong the oatmeal butterscotch, ginger snaps and chocolate peanut butter cookies.

Contempt for their customers! The standard was so poor it reflects badly on Newport and whether they want tourists or not.

We can not pass the Cookie Jar without buying cookies. We usually plan to get one or two but most of the time we walk out with 1/2 a dozen or more. We love the chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies (there is also a chocolate chip peanut butter cookie). Stop in and see for yourself.

You can smell this place from a mile away! We were lured in by the delicious scent. A small shop where you can see the staff prepping and baking. A little pricey, but very rich and delicious cookies. They even sell milk! The staff was very friendly and nice. I was paid a compliment on my dress as soon as... More

$1.75 for an average size peanut butter cookie is a bit over the top! We had one three times the size at a small cafe on Bellevue for the same price.
