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.

Custard is amazing!

I ordered a salad sandwich and was quite surprised that it only consisted of lettuce, tomato, carrot and mayonnaise. Almost $6 for this.

The place is friendly and a good atmosphere. Food you have a wide range to select from. And the pricing is average.

A family friendly place although a little noisy. I had the Ned Kelly Pie which was interesting. Prices reasonable and servings adequate.

Love this chain of bakeries. Have been known to drive a whole out of my way for a bee sting. This place in Ballarat was a let down. We were third on a queue and watched staff leave at the end of shift as the queue grew.... Service was so slow. And at the later part if the day, tables... More

Had a lovely pie and one of their bee sting cakes. Good value and lovely taste. Very nice service and very tasty food. I'll go there again next time I'm in Ballarat. Recommended.

This is a very busy place so it's not particularly an enjoyable experience but all of the food looks delicious and is very reasonably priced. Many of the tables were full of dirty dishes - I would recommend they had more staff on hand to clear tables as it was a bit of a turn off when you first enter... More

Being a normal busy working week day, this was obviously a good place we found to take time out and enjoy a good coffee,eat ,chat and chew and sweeten the day with a delightful "bee sting " or numerous other sweet delights. Parking at the back was not obvious to a new customer and street parking was rather restrictive.

Not going to rave but everything we had from here was good. Coffee, quiche, toasted sandwiches. If I'm in the area again and felt the need for bakery food I would give them another go. Service was also good.

We expected a wide variety of baked goods and were disapointed that it basically sold what you'd get at a place that sold muffins and coffee. Not worth a special trip.
