We've never been disappointed by Lovin Oven and we go here often. From kids birthday cakes to cookies, we love them all. The staff is always knowledgeable and friendly. The only downfall is that they are a little pricey, but worth it.

This bakery reminds me of the great bakery that I experienced in the town that I grew up in (Wyckoff, NJ). Everything that I have had in the bakery is outstanding - coffee cakes, cakes, cookies, pastries, etc. This is a treat that I look forward to whenever I visit.

Terrible service. Would not make a cake with two different fillings on layer cake. Manager with cast on her arm very rude.

I still think this bakery is one of the best! The staff gives you a warm and hearty welcome. The baked goods are a treat for the eyes and palate.

Have been to this bakery before when it town and enjoyed their selection. Stopped there last Friday to make a purchase, but waited at the counter for 15 minutes while the three employees helped everyone behind me and on the phone, and never took my order. I ended up leaving the store without a purchase. They have "now serving" numbers... More

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.

Thank John A
