Always great

They bake a variety of goodies. Not just cookies and cakes, but breads, lunch goodies, and coffee. A good place to meet a friend or just relax.

I heard so many people tell me of the awesome bakery items that I went right over and bought a lot of different items. I am from a city that has amazing bakeries, because you have to be good to make it. The items didn't look that impressive and for good reason, they weren't. No competition breeds mediocrity here,

Carlock's has been in Los Osos for decades. It was once a great family owned and operated bakery. In fact they made my wedding cake back in the day. It was sold in the last few years and I just experienced it this week and am disappointed in the quality. It's no longer great. I would say it is more... More

This is your standard donut shop. For me their donuts are a bit too - Doughy, a bit too heavy, but not bad. If you want the BEST donuts n the area, make the trip to Dollies Donuts in Morro Bay. They have some of the best donuts and cronuts I have EVER eaten. Great prices too. Coffee is OK.

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!
