We often stop here on the way to Te Puna Quary to go picnic. My choice used to be seafood (mussel, scallop, prawn and fish in creamy sauce!), salmon (in cream sauce as well), and cheese steak. However, may be because of change of my diet, it tastes a bit too salty when I tried last couple of times. My... More

Good award winning pies made here.$4.80 each. Shop door has chains hanging .These are very annoying and possibly unhygienic after a while.You have to part them to get through.Shop itself is a basic layout.Pies are very good though.

I have seen that this bakery has won many awards for their pies and always wanted to check them out. I had their steak and cheese. I found that there was more meat than I have ever seen in a pie in NZ (may have just been lucky but two days later I had a pie from their Rotorua shop... More

Great choice of bakery items, reasonable price and friendly staff. Not far from home for us to just duck up the road for fresh items

Bacon Egg Tomato Cheese Pie was exceptional: pastry was flaky and bacon was real, egg was huge and the taste was amazing! Cheese could have been a little more tasty rather than colby, but there was plenty of it.

Patrick's pies have just won the NZ Supreme pie aware in 2016. He had won many many awards before as well. So not just locals but professional pie eaters think they are one of the best in NZ. It's difficult to just grab one pie with so much choice, you always need a bag to carry them all home!
