Every cookie is cooked to perfection. They are a little expensive but these cookies deserve the cliché "You get what you pay for". The price is nothing compared to the taste of these cookies. The other pastries are just as good but I always go for the "go to cookies".

This is a small place in Arlington Hts area. The bakery makes fresh cookies every day. Our favorite one is florentine cookies. we take them all over the world and friends/family love them.

So delicious! My favorites are the almond joys and florentines. I wouldn't bother with the plain chocolate chip cookies but I wouldn't miss the shortbread.

Lakota has the best cookies around. Need to bring a gift to a friend or dessert to a party? These cookies are always a big hit. The help is also very very pleasant and knowledgeable, especially Allie. We love her and she is so nice to the children who come in. Highly recommend these cookies.

Not a place for a meal but if you like cookies you can easily fill up with all the different favors. Great to bring to a special occasion!

this small bakery has a huge assortment of cookies as well as some bar type sweets and brownies. it's pricey but worth it. lots of sugar and butter involved I'm sure.

These are the best cookies you'll ever eat - I promise you, particularly the dark chocolate ones. I like the almond chocolate or coconut chocolate ones the best.

Lakota is a specialty bakery: they have a couple dozen different kinds of high quality cookies, all delicious as far as I have been able to tell (and I think I have sampled most all of them over the years). They make custom cakes to order (only), so if you step in the store it's to pre-order or buy cookies.... More

While I have to admit the cookies are decent, therefore earning an average review, the service was deplorable! All the gals chatting in the back ignoring a patron. Customer service should come first, always... Just bought property in Arlington, the staff alone in this bakery is not worth a return visit!

Why make desert when there's Lakota? These are the best cookies on the planet. I've bought dozens for groups and they just disappear. I challenge you to find anyone who can resist.
