Simply outstanding. It's easy to see why they're award winning pies. A great stop for a snack, and for a meal.

Great People.... great food. Great gluten free stuff as well. Apple pies are to die for! Close to main attractions in Cairns.

Apparently you get the best pie in Queensland here and that, albeit subjective, in my opinion is rubbish. In a blind tasting I doubt I could have told the difference between my steak & kidney pie here and one from Pie Face. If this company has won awards I can only think they submit a different pie to what was... More

The pies were great and amongst some of the best I have eaten. There is a large variety of pies to choose from compared to your regular bakery. There was a slight wait to be served as they were fairly busy. The seating is a bit cramped but otherwise it was a good experience.

These are the best Meat Pies I have ever tasted from a bakery. Fresh, perfect crust, flavorful, large selection including veggie. We did takeout and they were great with a pint of stout.

My husband had a lovely steak & bacon pie but I didn't think much of the corn beef and cauliflower pie, very little cauliflower and pie was only just warm. Coffee was only just warm also.

Save your money! I don't care about the awards or rave reviews they have received. The two chances I gave them were both horrible, they use aspic as a filler to save on meat filling. Disgusting!! Both pies ended up in the bin.

I will start off by saying that I am sure their normal pies a very good. I however am a travelling Cealiac and need a gluten free diet to stay well. I had done a lot of research on GF options in Cairns before travelling and was frankly keen as mustard to find a bakery doing GF Pies. Dropped in... More
