“Good alternative to Maccas up the road.....”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We usually head for McDonalds if passing through Goulburn, however a bakery always seems appealing with the smell of baked bread, hot pies and other baked goodies.This large cafeteria-style bakery had all types of food choices to cater for a range of diners either on the go or a leisurely bite.

The décor is rustic and meant to be that way – just as well as its popular being near the Hume H’way. Other choices of hot food can be ordered or a buffet of sorts is offered - they open quite late for a bakery and a good alternative to Macca’s burgers just up the road.

We came around 630pm for just an espresso and a sweetie and to our amazement the coffee was excellent – so McCafe beware! Prices are a little on the high side across the board so don’t think that being a bakery gives too many reasonably priced options. The hot pies, cakes and breads looked and smelled nice and we bought some bread to take home. It tasted wonderful even after sitting there for most of the day.

A lovely, warm fire was burning in the huge fireplace while we drank our coffee and it was a really cosy break before we got back on the road.The restrooms were a bit of a let down and overall the place needed a good clean - it obviously gets busy here. We would come again though based on the Espresso alone and it really did compare well to that other café up the road.

Enjoy your experience!

“Well located”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Goulburn Bakery is well located for people travelling through as it's just off the Hume Highway and within sight of the Big Merino. It's a fairly big bakery and looks like it's often full or close to it. For that reason it doesn't have the feel of a quaint country bakery - it feels more like a cafeteria. The staff were friendly and helpful but the food wasn't great. (It wasn't cheap either.) There are probably better baked goods around but Goulbourn Bakery certainly offers convenience.

“Nice pies”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

This is a handy place to stop when we're travelling. The service is always friendly and the food is good. The pies are good, not the best ever, but consistently good and they have a nice selection.

“Undrinkable coffee and bland bakery option”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I stopped on my way back from sydney to Canberra - nice big building looks nice from outside but the coffee was not good and pies better to stay hungry - better to stop in other places

“Incredible food”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My family and I have been stopping at the Goulburn bakery for the last 10 plus years on our way up to Northern NSW where our family live even times on our way back down if we come through Goulburn it's our 2nd stop and driver change over point from or to Melbourne.

The home made pies, sausage roils and donuts are Absolutely Delicious, the bakery is very clean, inviting the staff are extremely helpful and prompt with your oredrs, the coffees and hot chocolates are just what the doctor orders having been on the road for 7 hours.

The range of other food available there has to be seen to be believed every time we have been there it is always busy there is both an inside and out side covered eating area divided into smoking and non smoking so the people that want to eat out doors but not smell cigarette smoke can do so in comfort.

We have met people from all over Australia there and never have we heard or found anyone with any thing bad to say about the Goulburn bakery it is well worth the visit you will not be disappointed it is only 2 minutes off of the Hume highway north or south bound
