“Nice Coffee, pies and smile!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

the second time visiting Miles better pies. the smiley young girl made me a fantastic coffee latte. that's a nice surprise, cause i haven't expected a good quality coffee from a small pie shop. then i had Thai curry chicken pie which is delicious as well.

“The Best Venison Pie my Deer..,”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

We passed by Miles on a tour bus to Milford Sound. Ian, our driver / guide pointed it out as worth a visit, even as we parked a few blocks away for a quick stop.

It was raining but we made our way over, and was it ever worth it! The hot Venison pie the house specialty, were absolutely delicious, and since I didn't finish all of mine off at once, even cold later it was still a treat.

The steak & cheese was similarly generous in size & excellent.

So a word to the wise -> walk a mile over to Miles my dear. More than well worth it!

“Best meat pies! ”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

Got a recommendations from the folks working in Milford sound and we lived them so much we came back and bought more. Our friends even ate their last pie cold on the flight home. We had the lamb and mint( a must), deer, steak n cheese, and fruit desert pie. All were great but everyone's favorite hands down was the lamb n mint. We heard the butter chicken is also great but they were out.

“Great Pies”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We looked for this place after arriving in town from Dunedin only to find they closed at 2:00pm. The next day was an all day trip to Milford Sound and we planned to move on to Queenstown the next morning. We decided to skip the breakfast provided by our B&B the last morning and get pies instead. We both got the egg and bacon pie. It was fresh, moist ad delicious. One problem we had was finding the restaurant. Our GPS kept pointing down the street. It is actually just a couple doors down from the Real Journey's office.

“great place to get breakfast, coffee, lunch for Milford excursions”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Folks who are using real journeys or other outfitters to get from Te Anau to Milford Sound need to know about Miles Better Pies, etc. They open at 6 AM, have great coffee and excellent baked goods including wonderful meat pies that are the cats meow for lunch on Milford Sound excursions. We have hit them up twice already and will do again tomorrow
