Not a bad little place

I LOVE the offerings. The prices could be better. But I guess it's a case of you get what you pay for.

Once you've served Lakota cookies, there's no turning back. Your guests, family and co-workers will want more. The mocha, chocolate, and lemon-filled cookie sandwiches are my favorites, but, with my family in tow, just about anything in the case is someone's favorite.

This bakery has such delicious items -- especially check out their mini-scones and mini-muffins. For birthdays, I've gotten adorable cupcakes. And they'll special-order cookies for you -- they have a HUGE collection of sugar cookie cutters, and you can work with them on exactly what you want. My favorite, though, is their challah -- delicious! Available only on Fridays and... More

They have been in Arlington for a long time. At the holidays there are lines out the door. The cookies are really, really good. Cooks Illustrated did an article on their cookies (Florentines). Everywhere I bring them, people rave and love them. They even have gluten-free options......

Lakota Bakery has the best cookies ever! If you love Macaroons and other types of cookies this is the only place to go. They are made right in the back of the store so they are always fresh. They do not take credit cards so be sure you have cash with you.

Not really a restaurant, but a large selection of divinely yummy cookies. They also make several varieties of cakes upon request. It's dangerous for me to walk by here. My 95 year old aunt just loved the chocolate cake with raspberry between the layers. Said it was the best birthday cake she'd ever had, and at 95, that's saying a... More

The best cookies, anywhere, hands down. Rich and buttery, every flavor shines. When Springsteen comes to town, He requests that a platter of Lakota cookies is backstage. I also understand that the shop made one of Obama's birthday cakes, after the last election!

I am so lucky to live less than a mile from here. The cookies are never less than fresh, and there's such an amazing variety. My problem is deciding which cookie to get. They have a very friendly staff, and when there's a line out the door (i.e. Christmas Eve) it is the most cheerful group of customers ever. Cookies... More

I have tried every cookie from this place and the are all excellent. Very high butter content. The cookies are beautiful and the perfect size. My favorites are the orange chocolate chip and the linzers.
