The Cookie Jar Bakeshop
If you can dream it, they can whip it up at The Cookie Jar Bakeshop in Bartow. Whether you are in the mood for a dessert item, or want a quick sandwich for lunch on your work break, this is the spot for you.
Cakes, Cookies, Pastries, Oh My!
This adorable little bakeshop has so much to offer. Homemade pies, doughnuts, muffins, cinnamon buns, pastries, and coffee. Should we continue? How about buckeyes, ooey gooey bars, brownies, and cookies, all of which are available to be purchased in a dessert platter for a special occasion or even a date night, if you ask us.
The Cookie Jar Bakeshop has a serene, relaxing environment. With indoor and outdoor seating, this café is the perfect location for catching up with friends or fitting in a coffee and study session.
Sweet treats are not the extent of this bakeshop’s inventory. You must know that this shop offers breakfast and lunch options as well. Choices include breakfast sandwiches, bagels, turnovers, and specialty salads, soups and sandwiches. All items are baked in-house with quality ingredients, special recipes (and love- we are sure of it).
Take the Cake
We all understand how important it is to have a stunning cake at your special event. Weddings, birthday parties, baby showers… a great cake is a MUST. The Cookie Jar Bakeshop creates one-of-a-kind cakes with over 40 cake flavors, cake fillings, and frostings. The bakers guarantee that they can create you dream custom cake in whatever shape, design, or taste you desire.
Make a Day of It!
Though the Cookie Jar Bakeshop is highly significant, the city of Bartow has other things to offer, too! While you are in the heart of downtown Bartow, take a stroll down Main Street and enjoy the shopping and dining. If you feel the need to become more knowledgeable on our local and regional history, you can check out the awesome exhibits at the Polk County History Center.
We can’t forget about the Historic L.B. Brown House. This museum highlights the work of former slave Lawrence Brown, who became a highly successful business leader.
Happy learning (and eating!)
