On TA recommendations, we tried the pies. They were OK, but nothing special. We have had much better (and worse) during our travels through NZ. We tried to buy some bread rolls for lunch - at just after noon there was virtually no bread left to buy. We went to Countdown instead, where they have very good baguettes for $2.50.

Clean & lovely smells of freshly baked pies / pastries / bread......... small and functional homegrown Kiwi hospitality & excellent service. Huge sandwiches and super-flaky pies with a huge variety of local seafoods featured in the super-pies.... you better bring your hunger on.... this small fresh-bakery by the epic seaside of Paihia certainly serves up Osum Food! Folks will travel... More

For an unassuming little bakery in a small town in the south pacific The selection and the taste of the in house freshly baked pies, bread, and breakfast menu is enough to rival the best in the world! If your in the bay if islands this small bakery is the place to indulge!

Clean and modestly priced. Not the best we have eaten but by no means the worst. The women at the counter seemed more interested in their children and the delivery driver than serving us. I feel the previous reviews have been quite generous

We were hungry and saw the bakery sign. Little did we know we were the first clients to try their new lunch menu. I had the BLT - it was enormous and well filled (could have done with just half, but couldn't stop eating it!). Others in our group enjoyed a calamari salad. Would recommend to other hungry travellers.

Lovely helpful staff, superb rolls, bread and cakes at a very moderate price. Highly recommended. We didn't have breakfast but it looked great.

THE BEST MEAT PIES - in the US, we don't have the ability to have these. SO - when we go to NZ we try to have plenty of the pies. We got to meet the owner and baker, Andrew. He was so entertaining with information about what to do and where to go. The best thing is the PIES... More

The best croissants we have had in NZ where they are often too bready! Nice location too so you can buy your food and eat it on the beach!

This bakery is great but you gotta be quick! They run out of food quite fast. It is opposite the Paihia beach so very handy and the staff are nice too. Pies are nice and a good variety. Kept in clean and cool environment and sandwiches are tasty too. If they are out of pies and you are wanting to... More
