Brilliant lunch and cost effective. A special $18 lunch deal for flathead tails & chips and scallops and the kids fish & chips was almost the same size. Janz by the glass was an extra treat.

Drove here on a recommendation of a friend just for the curried scallop pie. It didn't disappoint, what a delicious little morsel. Wish I could have bought a dozen to take home. Great little bakery.

Stopped at the Bark Mill Bakery for breakfast. Between us we had ALL the pies - Steak & Guinness; Bacon & Egg; Spinach & Cheese & a Sausage Roll. Tasty fillings but the perfect pastry is the highlight. Chocolate Eclair is a generous size and...More

Great place for dinner in Swansea. The Wood-fired Pizzas were really nice, and the staff very friendly. The prices were a bit expensive. Limited options for dinner in Swansea.

Great little spot for a drink and a couple of pizzas. Place is a little small so does fill up quite quickly but there’s no need to be shy when the friendly locals make sure it’s a night out to remember.

Stopped here on the way to Wineglass bay with a group of 12 of us. They have delicious bakery - pastries, pies etc. items as well as lovely coffee. The service was great and prompt despite how busy it was. Worth considering as a stop...More

Also good range of hot and cold food but my guess from how busy it was that it may run low by lunchtime. Good seating and clean rest rooms. Prices a little on the high side but no alternative that we could see.

Great place to stop for a pie or sandwich and cake. Friendly staff. Tavern meals are served for lunch and dinner and they have some history items to view

Stopped here with the family on our way to Four Mile Beach. The positives are there is easy parking and a playground for kids to run around in. The pies and pastries in the bakery are fine, but nothing to rave about.

When we were there, operating hours for the Bakery was from 6:00 am and breakfast from 7:00 am with lunch/dinner through to I think 8:00 pm and drinks until 10:00 pm. But best you check with them on arrival in the area.

Hi, I think you need to contact the bakery directly. I just wrote a review.

It is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, should have it, but I would send them an email and ask. It might be a special menu.
