Everyone recommended we go there, not quite sure why, wasnt really that great, pastry was soggy with no flavour. Most pastry is buttery, not from this place, it was gross

I can see why this bakery is world famous in Canterbury. Pie + donut + coffee = all sorted for the day. I almost wish I had bought 2 donuts! Honestly if you haven't been, you need to go.

I do remember there being a gluten free option. My son recently had a meatball, bourbon and mushroom pie which he said was gluten free. They do have a facebook page. Hope this helps. They are yummy.
