Located in the heart of the CBD in the beautiful & historic Water Board building, Beechworth Bakery Ballarat combines the best of both worlds... Here you can still find original features like huge safe doors that are the real McCoy and a wood panelled reading room, while enjoying comfy seating, free wifi and plenty of delicious food & drinks served quickly... with a smile.

Very Average Ned Kelly Pie

Nice old building in Ballarat with usual Beechworth Bakery fare. Our Ned Kelly Pies were dry and overcooked. Probably been in the Pie warmer too long as even sauce didn’t help. If this is their ‘signature’ pie then they need to improve how they serve them to the public. Lastly, it wasn’t a hot day... read more

Open on Good Friday! Nice hot Hot Cross Bun, excellent range of baked goods and even an egg and bacon type of breakfast. Everything was good, and two of us ate well for under $20. This is part of a regional chain with free WiFi and customer loyalty incentives. We have been to another in the chain and the quality... More

This bakery was like a tourist attraction! You could watch the bakers making treats which added to the fun. We had breakfast, open donut (must try!!) and take away treats. What a delight, loved this place.

Always tough to criticise any of these bakeries. Anywhere that is famous for there snot block is fine with me however there Ames Kelly pies certainly come in at close second. Great service and great atmosphere

As a group we were suppose to have the separate area but someone else was in there, when asked the staff she didin't know anything about it and told us to ask at the counter. Coffee was good food good but the place is extremely noisy.

After a morning of sightseeing this was a great place for lunch. Plenty of choices and the prices were reasonable. Service was excellent and the atmosphere is very good.
