This bakery is adorable! And everything we tried was delicious. The Nutella filled donut, chicken and mushroom pie, and bacon and potato pasty were seriously good. And the outdoor seating out front is the perfect place to enjoy your treats!

Visited a while ago to stop for a quick bite. Had a chicken pie which was honestly one of the best pies I've had. Good sauce, loads of chicken and amazing pastry. Cakes and desserts definitely worth a try too. Absolutely worth a visit

This place is so delicious!! Amazing collection of pastries and cakes! I couldn't get enough! I went back the next day! I had the cheese and leek pasty and it was just perfect!

Make sure you take wet wipes or wet towels, you will be covered in jam and sugar. Absolutely worth it though.

So I didn't actually eat her as I'm trying to avoid cake (extremely hard in NZ!) but, the smells coming out were fabulous and I had to use a lot of willpower. My glacier guides girlfriend works there and he says he loves it!
