We have gone here once a year for over 30 years. Then it was sold. New place not so great. Decided to go again this year and they must have gotten the message because now the bear claws are just like Mr. Carlocks used to have! Love them!

By far the best bakery in the area. Everything is great - cookies, pies, cakes, donuts, bread, whatever you have, it will be memorable.

This longtime bakery was sold a few years ago, but the new owners retained most of the old products intact. Still the best in town for breakfast rolls, danish, cakes and cookies.

They have a wide selection of pastries, doughnuts etc. my favorite are the stuffed croissants. 4 or 5 to choose from. Great breakfast. Popular morning coffee hangout for several locals. You'll always run into someone you know.

Old standard that's been here forever! Staff is very friendly. And don't even get me started on the individual fried Boysenberry Pies that my friend Theresa got me addicted to:)

I really try to support local businesses so I tried Carlock's Bakery based on a recommendation. After purchasing a chocolate cake, cookie and palmier my family found three items were stale and ended up tossing the inedible chocolate cake. The search will continue to find a decent local bakery...

I heard so many people tell me of the awesome bakery items that I went right over and bought a lot of different items. I am from a city that has amazing bakeries, because you have to be good to make it. The items didn't look that impressive and for good reason, they weren't. No competition breeds mediocrity here,

Carlock's has been in Los Osos for decades. It was once a great family owned and operated bakery. In fact they made my wedding cake back in the day. It was sold in the last few years and I just experienced it this week and am disappointed in the quality. It's no longer great. I would say it is more... More

They bake a variety of goodies. Not just cookies and cakes, but breads, lunch goodies, and coffee. A good place to meet a friend or just relax.
