Great bakery, deserving of its reputation

Loved the variety of food available, even hot food later in the day. Good selection of Gluten free options, great coffee and hot chocolate . Prices extremely reasonable for the quality

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.

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

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
