“Cantina, not bakery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I disagree with the other post here.
We found the Bakery very average.

Second time there, same conclusion. The bakery hall sounds more like a cantina. Very busy with a lot of echo. Sure, it's next to the highway with lots of people, so it must be busy. But then, please divide the hall up. Make it less noisy!
It's not a pleasure to eat there at all.

Bread, cookies and other baked sweet things were really average. I have the same quality at Coles and Woolworths but expect something more tasty from a "real" Bakery.

Price is standard. Certainly not cheap.

“One for the travellers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Just over the road from the Big Merino, the Bakery of Goulburn is a traveller's delight. It's welcoming, warm, has great food and service. A big open fire heats the place during winter and you'll love the atmosphere and the walls and ceiling adorned with words of wisdom from owner, "The Trapper". Bread, cakes, pies, sandwiches .. just about anything the traveller could ask for and reasonably priced. Service is with a smile and nothing too much trouble. Plenty of tables (inside and outside under cover), bathroom facilities are very clean and judging by the crowds, this is a very popular establishment. Do yourself a favour, if travelling from Sydney to Melbourne, make a stop at The Bakery of Goulburn and sit back, relax and enjoy!

“Tasty Food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

The Bakery at Goulburn is next to The Big Merino and is a convenient stopping place for a meal or snack, when travelling between Sydney and Canberra. During the winter there is a wonderful open fire to enjoy. A good range of food is available. It is all well-cooked, very tasty and reasonably priced. Service is efficient and friendly. Freshly baked bread and rolls can also be purchased. Even though they receive many visitors, the toilet area is up to date and spotless.
This restaurant provides a relaxing place to stop for a meal with the family.
