I rate this place for the ambience and the good ol' fashion regional Australia service. No frills. Went there during the week on the way north and stopped for breakfast and followed by lunch on the way back.
For breakfast, I had carrot cake with a flat white coffee. I liked the carrot cake and I think it's done to perfection. Aromatic, flavourful, moist. Plenty of walnuts to give it that nice crunchy texture with every mouthful. It had a thick layer of cream cheese icing on top which was what I hoped for. Had the right amount of sourness to it and it's simply wonderful.
For my lunch, tried the Guinness pie. Thought is was slightly off as the pastry was not flakey and slightly on the soggy side. I think it had spent a little too much time in the warmer and I am sure a fresh batch would have been better. I liked the chunky pieces of beef in it as you won't find chunky meat pies these days. My only comment about the pie was that there was no tinge of Guinness.
Agree with another reviewer, the coffee was a little diluted. Some like it diluted, others like them strong. But I like my coffee strong, so maybe Bakehaus will consider having "standard" and "connoisseur". I am sure something can be done with the coffee.
Overall, good work Bindoon Bakehaus! I'll definitely stop by again.
