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.

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.

Had visited the Beechworth bakery in Echuca the previous morning and the Ballarat outlet had the same delicious food and coffee but not the same atmosphere or service. The store was very cold although they had been open for several hours.

Loved the Ned Kelly pie! Our family group all loved their choices. Pies and pastries selected were enjoyed by all. It is only a bakery but more than suitable for a light lunch or morning/afternoon tea. Tasty food all round

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 yet we were pestered by... 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

If you like a great sausage roll and freshly baked pastries and goodies, this is the place for you. The range of food is fantastic, if you can't find something decant to eat you aren't looking !

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
