I must have total snubish taste buds. I just don't get this place. The backery items are average to good at best. Yet EVERYBODY I've talked with about this place just can't say enough good things about their product. Frankly I think Mariano's has better backery goods. Personally, I would NOT request items from here for my personal events/birthday, but... More

I have seen and eaten numerous custom made cake creations from Lovin Oven. If you have an idea for a unique cake for a special occasion they will create it for you and the aesthetics and originality will exceed your expectations.

On two different occasions my orders have come out so incorrect and the customer service provided left me flabbergasted. If you need dessert for an important event stay away from this place!

Matt S, General Manager at Lovin Oven Cakery, responded to this review

Sad to see this review. Admitted to our staff that the cake was excellent both times but some color variations and decorating details were 'off ' and a full refund should be given for the stress of it. When questioned by our managers she confessed that details were not specified in the ordering process. We attempted to fix before taking... More

If your on a diet, don't go in this place. Everything looks wonderful. You can OD on sugar for sure. There cakes are legendary. What more can I say.

Lovin Oven opened the Libertyville location a few years ago. Their main shop is in Round Lake Beach. You will never find higher quality bakery goods at any price - and their pricing is reasonable. A complete range of excellent breads, sweets, coffee cakes, the typical. It is better than excellent - I would call it superior.

The pastries at this place are amazing! Their doughnuts are delicious, plus they have quite a few different choices. Much better than the franchised bakeries and doughnut shops located everywhere.

You just have to try this Bakery - oh my! The cakes and pastries are fabulous. I love the snowballs - totally decadent and I think your brain goes into a rapturous state. Everything is fresh and home-made in taste. We love this Bakery!!!
