The pies are excellent! We had the mango/tomato/onion, the hugh jackman, and the vegetarian spinach/ricotta pie. They all were perfect! I would definitely go back and recommend this place.

A Bowen institution with the best pies in the region (especially the pie with peas). You can also get other great food and coffee, sit in or take away and plenty of friendly staff on hand. Can't wait for my next visit just for a pie!

Was recommended by a friend as a must visit in the town but the pies should be better. It had a manufactured taste to it and the crust was stone dry and hard.

I can assure you that you will not regret visiting Jochheims Pies or organising catering from them for business functions. They have a variety of fresh tasty food that is always consistent. The staff are very helpful, flexible and efficient. They went above and beyond our expectations and would highly recommend Jochheims Pies.

My first meal in Beautiful Bowen. I had a meat pie and a sausage roll. The pie was good but the latter was average. Not cheap but ok.

No trip would be complete without a visit to this bakery. By the queue you could tell this was a popular destination for locals. It was very busy and did a great breakfast but you have to sample one of their pies. One is even named after Huh Jackman who frequented the bakery whilst filming in the area. Delicious!!
