“Always good”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

We always stop here on our way north. The pies and service is always good. Sometimes very busy and you have to wait a bit. Worth it though.

“We saw the sign on the highway and detoured”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The sign gave us the message that Jochheims pies were extraordinary, so we decided on a pie lunch in Bowen.

Sorry, Jochheims - just another pie and nothing special

“Delicious Every Time”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

When we have a day off from work, our little tradition is to get a pie and/or cake/pastry from Jochheim's. The food is always very good, and we can see why they've won awards!
The place is always very popular with locals and the steady stream of people through the door means that often the service is a little brisk; on more than one occasion we've been given our food in take-away bags because they didn't ask if we were eat-in or -out and I've had to ask for certain items not kept in the heated cabinets to be heated up, which is something I feel they should offer. However, the quality of the pies and the cakes has always been high and made up for the small errors of service.
