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.

We are ignorant Brits and thought that the Australian food specialty was a prawn on the barbie. Little did we know that Australia is the world centre for top quality pies. After visiting Mockas we were certainly put right on that front. The range of pies and the quality of the baking and fillings was jaw dropping. There are exotic... More

I think these people once got the prize for the best pies in Australia, then disappeared for a bit but are now serving all the traditional classics again, the "original" beef pie has no fat, lots of flavor, yummo!!!

One of the better tasting pies I have had in a while. Has a large selection of pies and definitely beats the smoko style four n twenty style that was so sort after yesteryear that you heavily douse with half a litre of tomato sauce. Really good selection, and frozen take home option available.

In Port Douglas just off the main street is a wonderful pie shop. Being a self declared expert on pies, the shop must rank in the top three in the world, only bettered by pie shops in Falmouth and another in Halifax West Yorkshire. Clearly one could not expect any pie shop in our colonial cousin's country to be better... More

Situated just off the Main Street, Mockas is a top class bakery serving up delicious hot pies. Lots of choice including gator and kangaroo ( not to my taste!) I opted for the steak and pea! Delicious and didn't spill a drop of the gravy!

If you are looking for a real Australian pie, look no further. Flaky crust and every imaginable filling including croc and kangaroo!

As soon as arrived at Port Douglas I saw the sign Mockas Pies - gave it a try on my last day after being out at the reef. Pretty good - not sensational - being always drawn in by a sign for a good pie I thought Mockas was good but not in my top 10 Australia wide.

Walked past & thought we would try a pie or sausage roll - food was fresh & good price. Also can sit outside & watch the people.
