I've been buying Lakota cookies since before the store opened. I have a friend who is an exquisite baker and she bought them for her daughter's wedding celebration. Aside from being delicious, they are shaped specifically for each season and for different holidays. Shortbread Christmas trees, Halloween jack o lanterns, Easter bunnies, summer ice cream cones---just to name a few.... More

These are some incredible cookies so I try to stay away but it's impossible. It's also impossible to pick a favorite But for now it's the schoolhouse? Peanut butter. She used to make these caramels that my nine year old friend Ella fell in love with but she doesn't make them anymore so Ella has to find a new favorite.... More

Whether you are looking for dessert to bring to a party or just want to pick up something for yourself or your family this is the place to go. They have so many varieties to choose from you will need a minute to take it all in before make your selection. My favorites are the Florentines, macaroons and mocha sandwiches.... More

These are truly delicious cookies. It's hard to pick a favorite. Love the Florentine, linzer and chocolate ginger. They use quality ingredients so all the cookies are very good. Can't go wrong, just pick your favorite! Prices have gone up over the years. I remember paying 60 cents a cookie and was shocked when they went up to 75 cents.... More

You have never tasted better or richer cookies than Lakota Bakery. Their lace cookies drizzled in chocolate are memorable and addictive although one or two are very satisfying. This bakery is not your average place. The owner is very generous to events in town.

I cannot go here very often, because I would raise my cholesterol greatly. All their cookies are fabulous, buttery, not too sweet, melt in your mouth. My faves are the mocha sandwich and the crescents, but the are all to die for!

You will not be disappointed by ANY of the cookies. Each one is scrumptious. A bit expensive, but worth it. If you are in the mood for a special treat, or are going to a special occasion, you will definitely be pleased.

I have yet to taste anything from the Lakota Bakery that wasn't delicious--especially treats dipped in dark chocolate. The taste is enhanced by the opportunity to watch the goodies being made through the window when the storefront is closed. Everything has a melt-in-your-mouth quality that is absolutely heavenly.
