Pies bread and pastries are delicious... Freshly baked... Coffee is brilliant as well. Great place 😁.

Had first visited in October 2020 and had great pies. Returned February 2021 and they were just as good- in fact the friends we were with, who were flying home next day, bought 4 to take with them! If they doubled their prices they would...still be great value- never had a better pie!!!More

Not sure about what the hype was about their pies and cafe. Must be a local thing. We ordered a mince and cheese pie which was pretty average tasting. Too much mince and hardly any cheese. The mince filling lacked gravy and moisture. The pie...board selection was very limited and not very inviting. We heard a lot of good things about this bakehouse but was met with just above average pies and coffee.More

Got here late afternoon so there was no que out the front door but still busy. Not much options left so we had the famous pork belly and mince & cheese pies. Wow...they were so good we decided to takeaway another 3 pies for dinner...that night!More

We stopped here on recommendation from NZ Travel Tips. This is a slick operation: service is fast and friendly, pies are top notch full of actual meat, actual veg, actual gravy and no extender that I could see. Drinks were quick and efficient and yummy...as well. I’ll dream about those pies for a while!More

Heavenly pork belly pie with crackle on top! Also the chicken and salmon was out the gate, we also tried the breakfast pie - hands down the best pies we have tasted in NZ! Well done.

I confess I was feeling a little average when we stopped at the Fairllie Bakehouse for a pie (something to do with drinking too much red wine the night before with a good friend): but the bakery was a lifesaver! We shared a couple of...pies and left Fairlie feeling almost human afterwards. But seriously, we visited the Fairlie Bakehouse in late 2017 and the pie was stunning then. So points to FB for great pies and consistency. Love you Fairlie Bakehouse, we will be back.More

Suggested by a friend to try and glad we did! Salmon & Bacon, Pork with Crackle on top, Silverside Mashed Potato and Mustard, the standard Mince & Cheese were all delicious and the donuts for dessert topped off a great road trip.

So much choice, everything looked delicious. I loved my pork belly pie and my husband enjoyed his bacon and salmon pie equally, even though he doesn't normally like salmon. The Gluten free cherry and lemon cake was exquisite. Apparently there is normally a queue out...the door at lunchtime, so go early if possible, we were there at 11.30am and it was already quite busy.More

Best pies ever! Impossible to beat the salmon & bacon or the pork belly and apple pies. Restaurant clean, ample staff employed on busy Christmas Eve. Clean rest rooms for the travelling public. Well done to the team in charge.
