Great stop

We stopped at Carlock's Bakery on our way to Montaña de Oro. Coffee was delicious and so were the donuts. We also bought some jalapeno&cheese buns for lunch and they were just the best. As were the danish pastries. Would definately go back.

Carlock's has been an institution in Los Osos for many years. It used to be the place in the county to order your wedding cake. It changed ownership about two years ago, and some people feel it is not as good as it used to be. However, we have found it to be excellent with things like bearclaws, strudels, and... More

Their Angel cookie is something my husband remembers so well from his childhood. He hadn't been here in 10 years and he said they still taste as delicious as he remembers. So much to the point, we bought 2 dozen to send off to his brother to enjoy as well!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... Carlock's. Closest cream cheese Danish coffee cake to one my family used to get every holiday brunch back in the Bay Area at Wilson's bakery. Sadly Wilson's closed... But it's spirit was revived when I found carlock's... Thank you for the product and the nostalgia!

Carlock's just won "The Best of SLO 2014" for "Best Bakery" beating out Madonna's bakery!! This is just one fabulous local bakery that's been in Los Osos for years. I haven't had one thing here that wasn't top notch and thoroughly delicious! My favorite is the "Cronut" like a doughnut and croissant combined. They seem to be the latest rage.... More

Excellent bakery. Pick up a dozen doughnuts, buy fresh baked bread and order a birthday cake. You won't be disappointed. Great service.

Carlock's is a staple of Los Osos, and has been around longer than I can remember, and I've been here coming up on 30 years. Everything is good, but I tend to go for their Jalapeno and Cheese Fritters and brownies are my favorites. I love to use the Fritters as a bun for a sandwich or burger.

This is a small bakery with a nice selection of international items. They are a little pricey but very delicious. They also serve lunch items. There is a small seating area.
