If you want a treat and don't need a fix from Modern Pastry or Mike's Pastry, Lakota is a wonderful option!

Don't be fooled by the look of the store front. The cookies here are fabulous. I live nearby and will stop in for a treat. They must use tons of butter to make the best cookies in the area.

We stopped in for some cookies after seeing Lakota on America's Test Kitchen. The look of the place is unimpressive, but the cookies were absolutely delicious. We'll be back!

I don't eat other cookies now. That's a lie. I do eat other cookies. i just know that they will in no way equal or best the cookies from Lakota. The cream filling between shortbread rounds in multiple flavors. The ganaches stuffed "macaroons" that have no coconut anywhere near them. The coconut macaroons that are grand examples. Decided you don't... More

Lakota's Bakery has been THE place to shop for cookies for almost 25 years. The variety is phenomenal, the cookies delicious, and the staff very accommodating. If you are very diet-conscious, you should stay away! Please note: this is NOT a restaurant, it's a cookie store.

Best bakery in town! Delectable Croissants of varying sizes both savory and sweet, muffins, several types of made on the premises breads, award winning cakes with hundreds of devotees, and an assortment of scones. A bank of coffees and a few places to sit rounds out this busy, beloved spot to warm the cockles of your heart.

Excellent, high quality treats. Try the chocolate macaroons. I cut it in quarters to savor it (it's also very rich).
