A good place to start is that search box at top right.

My favorite is the butcher/baker at the Griffith shops. They do some fantastic gourmet pies. Lamb Moussaka and Mexican are my two favorites.

I love their Lamb Moussaka pies. Sadly they make them at irregular intervals. On the plus side, that makes them serendipitous as well as tasty :-)

2nd that, bemboka pies are awesome.

Re Michels, I’ve been to their factory, I’ve worked on their equipment, I’ve scrubbed myself down afterwords but the dirt and smell just doesn’t seem to come off.

My sister in law has this nifty gadget that is pastry cutter/pie cooker all in one … we had a pie there last week and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to whip up a home-made version, and the pie was just perfect! I am sooo getting one of these gadgets for my birthday this year!

I don’t know about recently but Cornucopia on Mort Street Braddon used to do some killer pies and pastries

+1 Cornucopia.

Steak & Mushroom, Excellent. My biggest problem is not also buying a plum pudding, etc . . .

Croissant D’Or in Civic.

Small supply, but those Portuguese sure can cook pies! And you can get fab religieuse while you’re there!

A place I worked at recently seemed to have a black market running in boxes of pies from some bakery at Murrumbateman. No one since seems to have heard of it though.

I’d love to find on eof those pies we used to get years ago, those square ones, a bit soft, with that jelly-meat filling with bits of black pepper all through it.

While waiting for that though, the vietnamese bakery at Kingston does some really good, honest pies. And you don’t have to deal with the wankers up at Silo.

The bakery at Nuggets Crossing in Jindabyne. It’s well worth the trip.

what’s wrong with a four and twenty, then?

actually, i’d suggest rutherglen – brilliant!

and on a pie-related sad note, i came through berrima a couple months back to find to my horror that the pie shop there had closed. vale the berrima pie.

more locally, can second [or fourth, where we up to?] the cornucopia concoctions.

Oh I don’t know Ant; I think it is worth the wanker-factor just to get a hold of those seriously good poached eggs with chilli jam – mmmmmmmm.

They sound like they’re runny.

That’s the Sundance Bakery, good tucker for sure, and really chunky meat pies. I often wandered up there for breakfast. There’s a little offshoot (or there was) in Packer’s Palace at Perisher front valley. Good cheap lunch, grab a sausaage roll.

The packaged pies at EPIC farmers market are fantastic.

Expensive, but they are real pies – all chunks of meat, no mince in sight.

Who has Villi’s pasties these days? That’s what I want to know?
If you like Michel’s, any of them – they are all trucked in from their factory, as per the website http://www.michels.com.au/pages/about/about.aspx
The Michel’s Story
Michel’s Patisserie is 100% Australian owned and was founded by Noel Carroll and Noel Roberts in 1988. Their concept was simple: a central bakery bakes the product and distributes fresh daily to the retail outlets, who in turn display and sell to customers.

Definitely not Bakers’ Delight, blerk! One day while under the weather recently I thought an average pie would do, but this one was beyond sub-standard.

For a plain meat pie, the hot bake just outside Supabarn in Civic does a great one.

+1 for Kingston Bakery. Great for a hangover if Kismet at Manuka is closed for a kebab.

#14 – The place at Cooleman Court is called Sakeenas. Great pies, coffee and service!
