The choice is varied from delicious raspberry shortbreads to chocolate delights of all types. Cookies are expensive but definitely worth it for a special treat or event. Sold also at other locations.

I've always enjoyed their Florentine cookies when I've picked them up at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, but it was a delight to make a pre-Christmas visit to their shop in Arlington Heights. Full of tasty goodness! Go for their great variety, good service, and wonderful goods. Note: they do not accept credit cards.

This area of the world has mediocre bakeries, in my opinion. Lakota is a brighter light. It's a tiny retail outlet where various cookies can be found, and cakes can be ordered. The taste is good; unfortunately, some goods have food coloring, which limits those allergic to such (as in our family).

I go in here and think I will just by one or two cookies. I never leave with less than six. Macaroons are exceptional and all the butter cookies with walnut or almond are my favorites. If you try a sandwich cookie, you will be blown away by the intensity of the filling. Be warned: you need cash or checks... More

Lakota butter cookies come in every shape for every season and are a hit with everyone we introduce to them. The sandwich cookies are a special treat. Lakota supplies cookiesmto placesmlike Darwin's and Pemberton Farms too.

If you remember the soup nazi from seinfeld, you will understand that this is the cookie nazi.
