Line out the door!

We stopped here for a quick bite on the way to Napier. Great New Zealand food, reasonable prices, and really friendly (but very busy!) counter staff. Inside and out was packed with busy diners, even on a winter's afternoon

Jacksons have won the best pie in the country, and if you visit you can see the choices they have for pies is vast. And I must say they make a mean pie. The pastry is always good, and the fillings are normally just right. But i think there buns are the best - ah the raspberry bun with jam... More

It's what I would call an average bakery. I do love their crossiants for their price, which is a surprise when the rest of the bakery is so over priced for the quality. I generally regret coming to this place an in future only will for the crossiants.

Jackson's is our "local" bakery and we are always delighted with the quality, service and value. Several times a week, we get Pane au Casa Sourdough; we regularly buy their un-filled rolls for frankfurters, hamburgers and other lunch options; at Easter their hot cross buns are a highlight and their Christmas mince pies are an annual treat.

Just purchased two quiche and some small pies for some out of town film production people shooting a video at our property. They were Australian. Best quiche and best pies they have ever eaten so they said.Great value for money. Beautifully fresh. Award winning bakers. Wonderful service. Just what you need in a Village like Havelock North!

Came here with the family and amongst us had a collection of quiches and pies. Dad enjoyed his pie as they are award winning. The flavour of our quiches were delicious but they werent heated through enough. Friendly staff, the mango smoothie was nice.

A great place to stop for fresh bakery products. Situated in beautiful Havelock, delicious cakes and goodies for you to take away or eat inside or out. Coffee is very good. Staff happy to serve you.
