The Cookie Jar Eatery

230 South Phillips Avenue, Sioux Falls, SD - (605) 978-0991

The beverage menu at the Cookie Jar includes coffee and cappuccino, tea and soda pop and hot chocolate and, best of all, milk. Whatever else you like to drink with other things to eat, there’s hardly anything better than a tall, cold glass of milk to accompany the single-minded specialty of this bakery which is, as its name suggests, cookies.

There are big ones and really big ones, pretty decorated ones and plain ones, “Monster” cookies and snickerdoodles. All are baked every day from dough made that day, so if you visit early enough it is likely you will get yours warm. Even in the afternoon, the soft freshness of a Frosted Double Chocolate Chip is irresistible, and the extra-thick Chocolate Drop is tender as a piece of just-made devil’s food cake. There are twenty different kinds of cookie available at any one time; and while most customers get bags of them to go (or have them delivered, or even shipped overnight), it is also possible to eat here.

If have special needs in the way of large quantities or unusual types of cookies with custom decoration, feel free to call and discuss what you want with the management. The Cookie Jar is happy to accommodate orders for cookies by the hundred.

When the cookie-craving strikes, Sioux Falls is the place to be. Seen here is the Cookie Jar's old store. They've since moved around the corner and added a breakfast and lunch menu.
