Don't you just love a good pie! The perfect pie should have exactly the right balance of crispy pasty and juicy tender meat, be hot and tasty and not contain any of those nasty gristly bits or bits of 'mystery meat'.
Pies are great as a quick meal or a snack at any time. A traditional pie is usually made with beef or perhaps chicken filling, but Gourmet Pies can have different and sometimes unusual fillings.
Lots of bakeries, cafes and patisseries around Perth make fantastic classic pies and Gourmet Pies, but where are the best gourmet pies in Perth?
Jayleas Patisserie in Willagee has won loads of Royal Show ribbons for their fantastic pies. As well as the good old Chunky Steak or Steak and Kidney pie, they also sell an incredible range of mouth-watering gourmet pies such as Garlic Prawn, Pepper Steak, Satay Chicken, Lamb & Rosemary and Beef Burgundy. Made Fresh each day, Jayleas Patisserie Pies stay crisp down to the very last bite.
Try the pies at the Miami Bakehouse in Melville or Mandurah. They bake over thirty different flavours of Gourmet Pies, fresh each day, including flavoursome Cajun Chicken, Satay Vegetable, Seafood Medley, Crab & Feta or Chicken Chow Mein.
The Pies at Culley's Tearooms in Fremantle are always fresh and delicious. They make a wide range of award winning pies every day, such as Chicken Korma, Peppered Steak and a very tasty Veggie Pie.
The Saffron Bar in the Fremantle Markets does a range of Gourmet Pies with an Indian flavour. For something different try the Butter Chicken, Chicken Madras, Vegetable Korma or Beef Vindaloo pie.

There are lots of places to buy a pie, perhaps the best pie you have ever had comes from your local bakery. Whether you prefer the Classic Pie covered in sauce or a Gourmet Pie for something different, please tell us - Where are the Best Gourmet Pies in Perth?
Miami Bakehouse I'd say is the best by a country mile... but Marcos Bakery in Victoria Park is surprisingly good too.
