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.

Only four tables to enjoy your coffee and a pastry, but both the coffee and the baked goods are excellent. It's self serve. Ask for the kind of cream you want in your coffee--they've only got the little "plastic cups"--kept on ice, near the coffee urns. Friday is "French Doughnut Day"--they have to be tasted to be believed--worth the visit.

Recently sold to new owners, still serving great pastries. Prices are getting out of the community's range, but that will equilibrate. Try other Morro Bay outfits...

It's a local favorite for traditional baked goods. I don't happy to have that kind of sweet tooth, but many are addicted and go out of their way to enjoy their selection of breads, pastries, and cookies.

Since I'm not a bakery fan, I'm not the best judge. I found the baked goods mediocre, the service barely satisfactory, and the coffee weak. Others find the place great, and I don't like to be critical of local establishments. My lemon bar wasn't tart and tasted like frozen lemonade. I had an eclair which was dry and lacking in... More

Baked goods are eye-appealing as well as delicious. Nice staff, too. They often make unusual and wonderful "hand held" lunch-type items you can pick up for a picnic. But don't miss the donuts & pastries!

All the classics. Danish, doughnuts, cookies, beirrocks, cakes, muffins. The long glass showcase is packed every morning. Really impressive bakery. Not great with the coffee though.
