For 20 years, this has been my go to place if I want the best dessert made. They specialize in cookies straight from heaven. Taste and quality are superb. Price is very competitive or less. Owners. bakers. and counter servers are always friendly, helpful and...More

Pricey, but fantastic cookies. Every time we need to bring someone a hostess gift, we head for Lakota. And sometimes we treat ourselves. Problem is that a dozen does NOT get you one-of-everything-that-looks-amazing ... you'd need about three dozen.

A friend always brings me goodies from this bakery. They are the BEST cookies I have ever had anywhere. I never have to go here since my friend passes it on her way to my place but I know where it is located and it...More

Oh Yum. Such a tiny shop on Mass Ave that makes up for the size with a bountiful selection of gorgeous, delicious pastries and cookies that are out of this world. There were also 4 or 5 gluten free selections the day I visited, which...More

Need I say more? They make the best cookies and cakes, period. If you are in doubt go to their web site, pick the cakes tab and scroll to the bottom.

I had Lakota's cookies many many times and each time it tasted the same and it is the best cookies. I buy Lakota cookies for X'mas gifts.

It's all true! Yummy butter cookies. Seasonal designs if you want. Flowers, sports, holidays, politics. (They even designed cookies for the Women's March!) Exquisite macaroons and fancy "Almond Joy" and "Triple Sec" delights. Old fashioned choices including oatmeal and peanut butter, too. They supply other...More

My wife and I love their chocolate-dipped almond macaroons. Ironically, we never go to our dentist (who is a few doors away) without getting some. We've also gone just for the cookies, though it's 15 minutes from our house. I'm sure their other cookies are...More

This is a tradition. The cookies make great easter basket gifts - and gifts for the adults we know. Everyone loves them. They are really, really good cookies. They have been known to go on overseas travel for service men stationed abroad.

Better than a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine as a house gift. Bring dessert to a dinner party. Hard to make a d vision they are all so scrumptious.

Hello! My husband and I tasted your insanely delicious lemon macaroons and fell in love with them. Sadly, we live in Atlanta, GA and wanted to confirm you don't ship--as I don't see any reference to it anywhere on your site. Look forward to hearing back. Best, Andréa

Hi. I believe they do ship. I live around the corner from Lakota, and one feature they are proud of is their map of all the different states where people have ordered from. So, maybe you should give them a call. Try their... More
