Description: Re-opening of an iconic Port Douglas pie shop which closed for some years recently. Was possibly the best known pie shop in Australia due to the unique meat pie filling recipe. Now re-opened by Nigel Quinn using the original and still secret pie filling recipe formulated by Mocka Cheyne and his mother Belle Cheyne.

Had a supreme pie from there whilst on holidays. Pie was good but not the best I've had, a lot of gelatine or something in there. Kinda though it'd be better. Kiwi's do the best pies tho. Good old chunky steak and cheese is the best.

This is a small place. You buy the pies at the counter and eat in the few tables that they provided. Not a fancy place for date night, but definitely a great place for lunch. The pies are YUMMY! We got kangaroo, croc, and normal beef pies. All were excellent. Highly recommended.

These are simply the best pies in Australia. My only criticism is there wasn't a lot so seated area, but the pies totally made up for that

These owners are clearly about quality. We had two very different pies ...... potato top and seafood. The pastry on both was great .... crispy and not too thick. Fillings were generous and very flavorsome. The seafood pie had a mixture of fish, prawns and scallops with a white sauce that didn't overwhelm the flavor. The beef pie with potato top was also well balanced. Good selection of sweet cake delights also. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Enjoy!

We popped in here expecting something amazing after reading all the reviews for this place and it seemed as if everyone else has to, as there was a queue out the door! Unfortunately we found it to be extremely average. At over $5 a pie I would consider them pricey, the pastry was nice and crisp but the filling was underwhelming. We tried the steak and bacon and the crocodile laksa. We wouldn't rush back here.
