Carlock's Bakery

Carlock’s Bakery is exactly the kind of neighborhood bakery we might have visited as kids. Indeed, this homey family business has been around for more than four decades, still run by its original owners, and still making delectable cookies (shortbread, chocolate macaroons and intricately frosted sugar cookies are just a few), buttery donuts (customers carry home boxes every weekend) and a cornucopia of cakes and pies, all at easy-on-the-wallet prices. Located in a nondescript strip mall next to a pet food store, it’s mostly take-out, but there are a few tables where regulars sip coffee and munch on some of the sweetest comfort foods around.
