Best little bakery in Texas.

While my wife makes weekly visits for cookies and thumbprints I usually enjoy the cakes. The down home and friendliness of the staff make every trip fun. In addition they have all manner of gifts and such. If you are a sweets fan, there is something to appeal to every taste.

Slaton Bakery is well know in Texas. Their packaged vanilla wafers and gingersnaps are carried in several grocery stores throughout the state. We stopped here for breakfast on a road trip from New Mexico to Austin. We had sausage kolaches and coffee and went back for a small cinnamon roll. Yummy! I bought a package of vanilla wafers to take... More

The staff acted like I was a burden being there. I was not even acknowledged. When I finally was waited on it was with attitude and eye rolling. If you use a debit/credit card the minimum is 10 dollars. I'd never been there before so I didn't know the amount of items as they were not visible to the customer.... More

Even though I had just eaten breakfast, I couldn't help trying a wide selection of the delicious pastries and donuts. Everything I tried was very good, and I even picked up some cookies for later in the day. The pies looked wonderful.

Slaton Bakery has the best cakes and pie anywhere! They are located in the downtown area of Slaton, TX. Their prices are reasonable. Love their Red Velvet Cake.

Pastry was light and maple was a good flavor, they even have them with chipped bacon on top if u like! The thumb print cookies are good too. We were in... More

Unlike many business routes through towns this one zips you right in and out, but be sure to stop downtown at this little bakery. I was surprised that a mid afternoon stop found them with their shelves full and a brisk business going. Lots of goodies to choose from. We took a cookie sampler for the road. All good but... More

They are now closed on Sundays. The pies are wonderful and many selections to pick from. Although friends suggested the tortillas, they are machine made, not hand-made.

Not only is this the best bakery within 100 miles - thumbprint cookies and vanilla wafers are my favorites - it's a great little sandwich shop. Worth a 50 round trip from Lubbock.
