Grab a cake or a treat and you can walk over to the water and enjoy a walk along the bottom lake. Though make sure to stow your rubbish as we love it when people come and tidy up after themselves :)

Delicious coffee made with creamy Tilba milk, an assortment of perfect pies and pasties and yummy sweet treats plus vegan options. The best bakery in the Merimbula area!

Stopped in at the bakery again this year and wasn’t disappointed. Best seafood pies!! Kids had beef pies which were demolished, so they must have been good. Custard tarts are great - real custard and nice pastry, unlike a lot of other custard tarts around....More

We stopped here and got a pizza pie and red velvet cupcake. Both were absolutely amazing and we would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone who loves a good selection of freshly baked goods. Thank you for your lovely service and amazing food...More

I love pies. These are great and the staff are nice. Out door seating for my dog and I. The camping shop is across the road. I just loved my pie.

I purchased food to take home for dinner. A pie and a frittata, plus a scrumptious rhubarb and apple slice were excellent.

The light rye bread here is still amazing. We cannot believe it lasts up to 3 days without preservatives or freezing. The seafood pies are also worth the walk down Alice Street. This is truly a neighbourhood gem.

This place is behind the main strip near the Salves shop but well worth hunting out. We had awesome seafood pies and iced coffees. The staff are very friendly and Stephen and Alana take a real pride in their food. Lots of gluten free options...More
