The staff at Loafers Bakery & Gourmet Shoppe has been dedicated to offering old-fashioned service for 28 years. They’ve made many, many birthday, special occasion and wedding cakes for lots of families and clubs. Holiday celebrations are a tradition with Loafers delicious goodies.
Located in the lovely north shore town of Locust Valley, the shop is more of a country store than a conventional bakery. Offering baked goods, soups, salads, cheeses, dips and spreads, cookies, cakes, quiches, baked bries, lunches, gift items and too many more things to list, it’s worth a trip to visit them.
This family owned and operated bakery is truly a “Mom and Pop” shop. Joan (Mom) is a fabulous cook, creating delicious soups, salads, quiches and dinners every day. George (Pop) is a Jack-of-all-trades overseeing the shop’s financial, delivery and maintenance needs, while keeping everything running smoothly.
Head baker and kitchen manager is Wes, who creates the most beautiful and scrumptious cakes, from the simplest cupcake to the most elaborate wedding cakes. Recently, he started a new line of lunches with fantastic wraps, homemade soup, gourmet flatbreads and refreshing salads, that the locals just can’t get enough of! He also offers catering for any occasion.
Lauren, who has been here the longest as she worked for the previous owners, does every job the bakery has to offer from counterperson, baker, wedding cake designer, buyer/ manager, recipe developer to creating beautiful gift baskets! For the past 26 years, she’s been making things happen here at Loafers.
The family and workers put their heart and soul into this little shop and it must be doing something right! They have done cakes for some loyal families from children’s birthdays, Sweet 16’s, graduation, bridal shower, wedding cake, baby shower, the christening cake, and then finally full circle, to their children’s birthday cakes. A whole generation worth of Loafers goodies! And the tradition continues on.
The store is always quite inviting and you are welcomed in by all who work there. A sample table is set up to taste some of the fabulous food and tasty treats they offer. And as always, the great aromas coming from the kitchen are free of charge! "Life is Sweet" at Loafers, stop in to visit us anytime.
The “Family” and staff at Loafers Bakery thank all of their customers for their loyal patronage, and look forward to many more years of creating fabulous goodies and cakes
