A "must eat" place when we go to Ballarat. Everyone enjoys the food and gets a treat to take home. Always clean and organised. Yummy too

Great place for great Pie, lots of different ones to choose from even take a family home or just some extra normal size. Another busy place which says the food is good, good atmosphere and plenty of history to read about but its all about the pies.

Not quite sure what all the hype is about. Average bakery goods at inflated prices. Whilst clean, the dining area itself has a sterile feel to it. Just not inviting. I'll visit a smaller bakery next time.

Pretty huge dining area for a bakery. Lots to chose from. We had a lemon meringue tart, a cinnamon donut and a cup of hot chocolate. Prices were quite expensive perhaps it's the brand name? The lemon meringue tart was really good. Not too sweet with zesty enough. We actually bought a second one cos one wasn't enough to share.... More

We stopped by for a bite to eat. Great food, great price, lots of seating and small play area for the kids. The pies & pastries were delicious and my Mum also enjoyed the bottomless cup of tea.

Visited for breakfast one Sunday morning. Service was grudging and slow, and tables desperately needed to be cleared from previous customers. At 9:00am every table had left-over dishes from a previous customer. The bacon and egg toasty was dry, the coffee was adequate and I wish we had found somewhere else to eat instead.

Called in for a coffee and to buy a few loaves of our favourite ... pumpkin bread. They only had approx. 6 loaves of bread on display for sale - at 10.30am !!! This is a lovely building ... but that is where it stops. The coffee was terrible. I was only able to get one loaf of pumpkin bread.... More

We had some sausage rolls, salad roll, and of course some cakes and biscuits. They were the best sausage rolls that we have had in ages. A nice atmosphere to eat our lunch. Thanks :)

This particular bakery is so popular that they run out of our first choice as often as not. perhaps it is just as well they have such a wide food selection. We can never be certain how long the queue will be until we arrive. We have arrived at different times of the day and sometimes the queue is long,... More
