Great for a quick bite

Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch. Got a plain pie & sausage roll, the pie surprisingly cam topped with potato but was awesome. Reasonably priced & just the right temperature, may have to head back to try more.

Always frenetically busy, the Beechworth Bakery never disappoints. Choose from a wide variety of pies, pasties, sausage rolls, cakes, biscuits and other delights. Large seating areas allow for lots of customers to eat in comfort. Staff are always friendly, patient and helpful and usually dress in theme for footy finals, Melbourne Cup. Otis a great family bakery with something for... More

We got some pies and sausage rolls. Very nice and fresh. There is a reason why there are always long lines at this place. It was even busy at 9am on a Sunday morning.

Called in to this pleasant bakery and enjoyed a chicken foccacia and a cup of tea which were both very nice. They have a bottomless tea charge for tea and they have a large range of teas to choose from. Quite a busy bakery considering its not in a busy street. Pleasant and welcoming staff.

No trip to Ballarat ever complete without beestings and barvarian rings to go. A hit at home with family. No bakeries within 2 hrs stock these custard and cream pastries. Always busy inside. Always fresh to buy.

This bakery is good at advertising but does not live up to its so called reputation. We tried it in Beechworth and again at Ballarat and I won't be going to one ever again. Basic bakery items, overpriced and I have had better. Look elsewhere.
