I've always thought the Beechworth Bakery was overrated, including the original in Beechworth itself. I grabbed a pie and coffee last week, and although the pie was alright, the coffee was average at best. I wouldn't ever find myself going there for a sit down feed, I doubt I would ever even go back for a pie or coffee as... More

The service is poor, the dining area was filthy and we didnt see any staff cleaning any tables after previous guests had left, so we had to clear and wipe the table ourselves. the selection of food was very limited and not much of a range for the healthier options, and it was expensive. will not be back

They were freshly cooked, perfect temperature and best of all, they tasted great. As an added side bonus, BB didn't even charge for sauce; a rarity in today's bakery world. The staff in store were fantastic.... More

Great place, building is full of history. Huge selection of foods, some prepared some made to order. Can watch cakes getting decorated. Hubby had a pepper pie and stated it was delicious. I had a roast beef on sour dough sandwich, freshly made which was fabulous. You can purchase a coffee or get an endless cup, which is a great... More

Service was ok. Staff not that friendly. Coupon was worthwhile if you wanted tea or instant coffee... toilets were tiny and cramped.

We had lunch at the bakery and it was delicious. Lots of different choices. Sandwiches, foccacias, pies etc. something for everyone. The service was fast and the place was very well kept.

Central bakery - with lots on offer - only trouble is deciding - there is often a 10 deep queue at lunch hours - this moves quickly and it has a large seating area - a few vego options and bottomless coffee available - with kiddies zone.
