The Cookie Jar is one of those little clean, well-lighted places you find on the road sometimes, a real gem. They've expanded slightly, so now there are more booths for sit-down eating. They truly have some of the best cookies I've ever eaten, and believe me, I've eaten mine and about a hundred other people's shares of cookies in my lifetime! The iced sugar cookies are heavenly--soft, not too sweet, and the icing has just a hint of almond flavor. Lunches here are good, too, they bake their own buns for the sandwiches and cook the soup themselves. You can get the lunches to go in a little "box" as well, and they're so reasonably priced. They now make pies and loaf cakes, which are all excellent, particularly pumpkin. But the true standout is the cookies. Holiday cookies, especially the Christmas cookies, are delicious and they have a wonderful variety--iced, nut, Hershey's Kiss and butter cookies. You simply can't go wrong here, whether it's for a snack or a small meal.

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.
