On our way to Taos we stopped here on the recommendation of locals and are we glad we did. The apple fritter was delicious so we got another half dozen. Staff was very pleasant as was the owner. Highly recommend a quick stop.

Just happened upon this bakery for coffee and was amazed by the selection of donuts and cinnamon rolls. We shared an apple fritter and a baked cinnamon roll and they were some of the best we have ever had!! The owner-Dino was friendly and fortunately had time to chat and suggest some things we may want to stop and see.... More

Being from the Midwest, I like donuts just so. These meet my expectations and more. Get there early as they sell out daily! Long Johns are to die for....

This may be the BEST apple fritter and cake donuts in 3 state area!!! Others have said: "Don't be put off by the decor or the surroundings. Grab you donuts and fritters & the Farmers Brothers Coffee and Hit the Road. DINO, the owner is GREAT!

Don't be put off by appearances - Dino has the best tasting and freshest donuts in the area. His made-to-order cake are tasty and have substance.

Buttery, flaky and flavorful! The apricot and cherry pastries were still warm from the oven. Delicious! Friendly folks run the place.

Busy place. Open until they sell out, which is frequently, so don't wait too long. Coffee is not their strong suit, it's just standard Folger's or something you may not want. Family owned, same location for years and years.

I just love Dino and his family! Our family has been coming here for years and enjoying everything he makes. Now, my children insist that I bring bischochittos to them every time we visit. (The grandchildren expect Nana and Grandpa to have them when we get off the plane!) My husband is a big Apple fritter and donut fan, and... More

On our way to Taos from ABQ, we saw this shop and quickly decided to stop in. They have both cake donuts and yeast donuts and OMG, they were both delicious and light. Their coffee was good too. This place is TINY so it's a stop and go kind of place, but do it.

The Lov'n Oven is take-out only. Timing is important for baked goods. You need to get there soon after they open so that your doughnuts or whatever are fresh. The only problems is that their selection is limited.
