The Home of the Best Pies in Australia
Who would believe that a Caltex Station found on Brand Highway just outside of Dongara would receive the Gold Medal for the best seafood pie in Australia 2013?

Who would know that this Catlex Station would be the home of the best pie in Australia?

Stuart and Leanne Doyle are renowned for making some of the best pies in Australia. And, while they may have received a gold award in the Great Aussie Pie-Making Competition, they also received a number of sliver and bronze for the other categories.

The best pies found along Brand Highway outside Dongara!

I can say, without a doubt, that their pies are one of the best in Australia. Their fillings are packed with chunky pieces of meat, flavour and gravy.

Hardest decision will be choosing the one you want!

They have been approached by a number of people to mass produce their pies, however the consensus with the staff is that Leanne and Stuart prefer to keep the pies 'in-house'. And, I tend to agree with their vision because some great things should remain right here in Western Australia.

By the time we arrived at the station the famous seafood pie had sold out. I ended up choosing a satay chicken, a beef, a lamb and a chicken/asparagus pie. Dinner for the family was sorted.

Chicken Asparagus Pie

The chicken/asparagus pie was very creamy and filled with chunky pieces of chicken and asparagus. Unfortunately one was just not enough.

Satay Chicken Pie

The satay chicken pie was filled with chunky pieces of chicken with a thick peanut curry sauce. While I only had a taste of this pie, I made a note to purchase one of these pies on our way back home.

A lamb pie with a difference.

I found the lamb pie fairly rich in flavour. I believe I tasted a hint of mint in it, however one bite was just not enough. I would definitely need to purchase another one to make sure - of course.

All in all, the pies we purchased came from a champion stock of award winning pies. Outside of the fact that one was not enough, the family was extremely satisfied with my dinner selection.

The Caltex along Brand Highway is the only place you can purchase Doyle's Pies. I would definitely recommend that you put this place on your list of stops on your next trip north of Perth. If there is one lesson you can learn from my mistake - ONE is not enough.

Do they send them interstate. I would buy them if so. Could be an idea.
