I bought cookies here to treat the nurses at the hospital for taking care of a family member. This bakery is often crowded and has a great reputation. There is often a line here.

Am a long time fan of the stuffed croissants, with my fav being the spinach & mushroom. However, I just had one of the best cakes that I think I ever had. Butter cream center filling. To die for!

Walking into Carlock's Bakery is like walking into the past. But, a good past. All of the sweets are excellent. Breads and muffins too. Pies and cakes. You cannot leave without trying their chocolate cheesecake!

A favorite of all the locals and travelers. Their giant bacon cheddar biscuits and ham and cheese croissants what we enjoy all the time but the specialty cookies and cakes are what they are known for. Definitely the place to go for yummy anytime treats.

We go here at least once a week, sometimes more. Everything is delicious. We are fans of their croissants. Ham and cheese is my personal favorite. Super friendly.

We visited for breakfast. I had an Apple fritter. Most dry Apple fritter I have ever eaten. My wife had a croissant, she enjoyed it. We did enjoy the conversation with the locals. We stayed and chatted for over an hour. Well worth the visit just for that.

Little bakery in a strip shopping center. Chairs and tables inside and you can also purchase drinks. Pastry is to die for. Apple Fritter exceptional Cronut ( croissant and donut) filled with raspberry filling. Glazed and melts in your mouth. Several flavors of Danish , blueberry, lemon, cheese, Apple creme. Also have good breads and cakes.

Bakery that has been around for generations. Owners have changed and some of the recipes have changed a little, but still a quick place to pick up a donut or two to get you through.

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.
