Lobacks is part of a dying breed of old family bakeries. Such a gem. First and foremost... the most amazing cream puffs and eclairs if you come on the right day! And we are some serious foodies... one of us a classically trained chef! We have actually special ordered large batches of these for parties or sharing with friends. We... More

I've been going to Loback's for over thirty years during my family reunion vacations, and cannot more highly recommend them for their cake donuts and bear claws!! They are famous in my family (my grandmother was going there in the 70's), and this place has been around for closing in on 100 years. A MUST STOP, if you're nearby and... More

We had tasty snacks from there 3 of the 4 days we were on Buena Vista. The 4th day we left too early for a delicious bear claw. I bought back treats for my family to share. Great service, wonderful food and overall a must stop shop while in town. Great job!

For a great treat in the morning at coffee time. Homemade sweet rolls of many varieties. Take home fresh baked bread of your choosing.

Short Version: They forgot to bake the cake for our wedding. Even after having contacted them 3 times after the initial order (twice right before the wedding), they still failed to have a cake ready on the date specified. A family member was forced to miss our wedding pictures in order to pick it up late, and it was not... More

I must admit that I somewhat biased as I grew up in Buena Vista and the bakery has always been a favorite of mine. However, I have not stopped by there in several years until a recent visit this month. It was just exactly as I remembered it!! The applesauce donuts (only available on Saturdays) are excellent but the maple... More

If you're ever in Buena Vista, you have to try Loback's Bakery. Their long johns and bear claws are unrivaled anywhere. My husband loves the cream filled long johns with the sprinkles, and I love the bear claws (almond flavored), although this year I tried the maple iced cream filled long johns and now I can't chose! We bring all... More

What a disappointment. I always look for the little "mom and pop" bakeries in every town I happen to be staying in. I love a finding a place I dream of returning to. It just did not happen with this place. Not good. At all. Too bad.

Used to be a great place to stop for a quick baked items. Now the selection is very limited. I think they mostly bake for the local resorts.
