We visited around 2pm on a weekend and many of the items had sold out. We loved the HUGE sausage rolls (great value at $4.50 as they were big enough to share) and kids loved the ginger bread men. There is seating inside and out.

I know this bakery from the point of view of a visitor interested in social history. The bakery is located in the convent's kitchen wing and uses two wood-fired masonry ovens that were installed by the nuns in 1901. What a heritage to keep going.
