Louis Lopez has yet to meet a challenge that his baking skills couldn't conquer, skills acquired over decades spent in kitchens as a pastry chef. As the owner of Sweet Temptation Bakery in Great Neck, NY, the Chilean native has developed his culinary talents over the years, helping the business gain a reputation among locals and visitors as one of the finest bakeries on the North Shore. 

In 1980, after years at French gourmet bakery La Patisserie in Manhasset, Louis brought his experience to today’s location, which was then known as My Most Favorite Dessert. He was there nearly a decade when the owner decided to sell the business and move out of New York. Louis, always on the lookout for a way to fulfill his dream of owning his own bakery, sensed an amazing opportunity and seized upon it. His dream had finally become a reality in 1990 when he officially took over the business, renaming it Sweet Temptation Bakery shortly after - the rest is history!  

Tucked away at the north end of Great Neck’s Old Village, Sweet Temptation Bakery is truly a hidden treasure and a genuine mom-and-pop business that has become integral part of the community. Our secret to success? Everything is homemade and baked fresh daily, with minimal sugar and only the finest ingredients. All of our products are baked with kosher ingredients and we have a wide selection of parve desserts as well.

We are proud to cater to everyone in the wonderfully diverse neighborhood of Great Neck and its surrounding areas. We have something for everyone, and if we don't happen to have what you are looking for let us know in advance and we’ll try our best to make it happen. In addition, we take extra precaution when handling nut-free requests.
Our fresh Apple Pies and Tarts are our two most popular items; baked daily to sweet, warm perfection. Other favorites include our moist and delicious Carrot Cake, the almost too-good-to-be-true gluten-free Almond Meringue, and Louis’ special parve Chocolate Blackout Cake. We also carry seasonal favorites like fruit pies, pumpkin pies, sufganiyot, hamantaschen, challah bread, Christmas holiday platters and more. Special orders are always welcome; whether it’s a wedding cake or a single, mouth-watering fudge brownie you're after, Sweet Temptation Desserts is the place for you.

Curbside service is available upon request.
