Delish breakfast & treats

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

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.
