The food was delicious and the staff were very pleasant. My chai latte was hot and enjoyable. I will go there again when I am next in town.

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!!

Have been visiting Bowen for 30 plus years and Jochheims was always a must. In fact it was a must often during our stay. The pies, pasties and cakes were some of the best we'd ever had but sadly, not any more. The family business seems to have lost that magic family touch and the food now is pretty ordinary.... More

Saw a few signs along the Highway and had to ty this place. From signs, reviews and locals we thought it would be terrrific. Its just an old Aussie bakery in a country town, noting special. We wanted bread and these days we expect a little more. Its clean and friendly but just plain Beige. Dont expect anything exiting.

Every time I visit Bowen the family demand at least one lunchtime meal or two of Jochheims Pies. The crisp light pastry and multi meaty filings are sensational !! Best pies in North QLD

We where in Bowen in Sept. Looking for a great pie or two. Read the reviews here and thought we should give it a try. Lots of people there, good start. Staff very busy... so seems good.
