Re-opening of an iconic Port Douglas pie shop which closed for some years recently. Was possibly the best known pie shop in Australia due to the unique meat pie filling recipe. Now re-opened by Nigel Quinn using the original and still secret pie filling recipe formulated by Mocka Cheyne and his mother Belle Cheyne.

Great pies

I loved this small bakery for a great meat pie. This place has the most amount of meat in a meat pie I think I have ever had. Great value for money and filled the gap. I will be back.

The first time I had a Mocka's pie was in 1978 and it was brilliant. Anywhere else in Australia back then just sold meat pies, pasties and sausage rolls. But at Mocka's you could get about 11 different varieties of pies, although you had to get there early as Mocka made a set amount and when they were sold he... More

Great selection of pies. Probably best pies in Australia. Try the kangaroo - excellent! and sausage rolls are special too. Nice staff too.

Good pies, good customer service. Nice and clean bakery too. Sadly there were no tables as they only have about 6 tables.

Locals told us this is the best meat pies around. We hadn't tried one yet so we gave this place a try. the staff explained all the different pies they had. I had a supreme pie and my wife had a steak and mushroom pie. Our only regret was that we hadn't visited this place sooner in our trip because... More

Well, it was acutally a crocodile pie - don't know that I would be brave enought to actually eat a crocodile steak. What did it taste like? I'd have to say it was similar to a chicken pie - very nice.

Just a small little pie shop, good place to try an Australian classic, the meat pie. Not the best pie I've ever had, but decent. They also had some fun exotic flavours like crocodile. When we arrived there wasn't much selection but they made a new batch while we were there so we had a bit more choice. They also... More

If you like a pie don't miss this place!! It's hard to find a good pie these days but this place certainly knows how to make them sausage rolls and pasties are also fantastic.

I was starving, and the Supreme Beef Pie filled the spot. Piping hot and delicious - bigger than an ordinary pie, and plenty of chunky beef, bacon and tomato.
