Well on the road again and this time in my hometown Ballarat. It would not have been same with out calling in and having a bite to eat at Beechworth bakery. My son loved it and picked out a few things on the menu. For visitors coming to Ballarat its a must stop. It's not a normal bakery as there... More

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.

Thought this was just a bakery but was surprisingly big, being housed in an old bank building. Had a lovely breakfast - toasties, yummy muesli with fresh blueberries, raspberries and yoghurt and finished off with bottomless cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Yum!

Nice to stop in to a bakery that was clean and had a selection of cakes. Cappuccino was reasonably smooth and not over-extracted that doesn't make it strong, only bitter! Bought a danish to go too.

We visited the Beechworth Bakery for lunch one day in January. We had one of their signature Ned Kelly pies with egg, bacon, steak and cheese. It was one of the best pies we had ever had. Along with that we also had a few iced drinks which were equally as delicious. We had a $20 voucher to use from... More

We walked in, looked at what was to offer and prices, and walked out. Very average selection at extraordinary prices.

Arrived New Years Day, around 9am and the had no sausage rolls , one party pie and two steak pies ... Umm what do they serve the rest if the day then? Pretty poor effort and they need to clean tables quicker as I witnessed at least three different people clearing a table to sit. Won't be back in a... More

So disappointed in this version of a Beechworth Bakery compared it's counterparts elsewhere in Victoria! Having been to Bendigo, Beechworth and Echuca this one let the others down by a country mile! The bakery is housed in a rather grand building but it sells much, much less in variety than the other bakeries. Cleaning and a good scrub would make... More

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
