We had breakfast here as we were pulling out of town. The food was so nice we grabbed some pre made rolls for the trip. Everything was great and they used top quality local ingredients like smoked chicken from the meat smoker up the road.

We stop at this Bakery every time we travel through Fairlie. The pies really are that good! There is always a crowd there which usually indicates that you are in for something special. The muffins , cakes and sandwiches are good too. I don't normally eat pies .... But I can't go past one of these!! I put value down as excellent because even though you pay the normal bakery prices you are getting something truly enjoyable! Definitely not a bakery you should just drive past!

We ate lunch here and came back for breakfast the next day. The pies were excellent. The muffins were good, too. We were staying at the Fairlie Hotel across the street, which was not a good experience, so it was great to have such a nice place to eat.

We even ate pies from Fairlie the next day when were we having breakfast in a cafe in Lake Tekapo - they are brought in from Fairlie.

Both my husband and I agree that we got the best pie we've ever eaten from here. Staff were very pleasant and the service was great! Didn't take long for our order and we will definitely by stopping here more next summer on our way to the lakes.

Yes, the other reviews are correct - great pies at the Fairlie Bakehouse!

Mince, mince & cheese, venison - all wonderful. Crisp pastry, firm filling that wasn't all gravy and full of flavour.

The apricot slice was also wonderful, made with fresh local apricots and their own short pastry.

Staff friendly, I just wished we lived closer.
