Best pies ever. Delicious. Great flaky pastry, chunky meats with rich gravy. Recommend steak & mushroom or steak & kidney. Mine and mince & cheese are also recommended

We stopped by to grab some food before heading down to Ruapehu. I wasn't planning on getting anything but saw that they had award-winning pies (Lam's Pies) so ended up getting one. I grabbed the creamy mushroom, bacon and cheese one. the party was nice...and the filling was ok. I was expecting more of a medley of bacon and mushroom in the filling but it was a mushroom in a white sauce with a nice piece of bacon on top. It was nice and creamy and did have a nice flavour. they did have standard bakery items as well.More

Family trip to the bakery while passing through Taupo, stopped here from the “good” reviews. Was shocked at the insane prices! Way way overpriced! Pie was average and the cream donut was dry and stale, so disappointing. We have eaten at many bakeries across NZ...and this was definitely scraping the barrel!More

The worst customer service ever. We recently had so rude customer service from the Asian looking lady in the cashier. We stopped there to grab some snacks on our way to Ruapehu and accidentally I dropped one of my food on the floor. When I...picked the food up and wiped the floor ,the Asian looking cashier very rudely said " Give me that food ,I am going to chuck it in the bin" . I was almost in tears as she raised her voice in front of all the customers. To keep my peace of mind at ease I paid for the food I ACCIDENTALLY DROPED on the floor. The experience I had was so rude. Won't be returning ever again.More

Very nice pie. But the coffee is awful. The pie is nice and hot and the pastry is very buttery and flaky. But the coffee it’s really awful. They should brush up on that.

This is the tradesmen's choice. A vast selection of cakes and sandwiches, but who cares when there's an even greater choice of pies and sausage rolls! I had a beef and bacon pie on one day, and a steak and kidney pie the next day....They are so full that you need to sit down to eat! They have tables and chairs inside the bakery, and there are benches outside. It's a sort of self service bakery. Take a tray, load up, and pay at the till. The staff; mostly ladies, probably Filippina, are unfailingly cheerful, helpful and professional. Even with the seating, huge choice, etc, the prices are commensurate with other bakeries.More

We stopped here for lunch in Taupo and I had a meat pie (Chicken and apricot) and my wife had the fried chicken. The chicken was just ok and a little dry but the meat pie was very good. It was really moist and had...lots of tasty fillings inside. My wife wishes she would have bought one of the pies. Just a heads up they don't take credit cards to if you are traveling from outside the country make sure you have NZD. Prices were reasonable and seemed like a very local place. The deserts looked really good as well but we did not buy any sweets.More
