Ever been cruising down Forest Highway and wondered where are all the roadhouse stops? If you are making the track down South where do you go if you need a pit stop? Thomas Road and Safety Bay Road (you have to turn off at these points to access the service stations) are still fairly close to the city. You can turn off again, at Pinjarra Road to access either Pinjarra to the East or service stations toward the ocean, to the West. But where can you stop along the Highway were you don't have to turn off?
Luckily Miami Bakehouse has the answer. Located on Paull Road, after Pinjarra Road turnoff and before the Dorsett Road amenities stop (where there is also a great heritage trail, you can walk, stay posted to Weekendnotes for more information) the Miami Bakehouse store is located Midway between Mandurah and Bunbury and is aptly called Midway. Selling the Miami Bakehouses' awarding winning pies, cakes, biscuits, coffee and drinks this is the one and only stop where you don't have to pull off the Highway to take a break.
If driving up from Perth, a couple of kilometres before the shop you will see signage on the left hand side of the road announcing the imminent arrival of Midway. Coloured flags line the highway just before the turn off so there is no way you can miss it! A 500m drive down Paull Road and you are there. At the moment permanent toilet amenities are under construction, there are however temporary facilities available for the weary traveller, not to mention must needed sustenance in the shape of pies and other treats for the journey ahead.
The staff are friendly and chatty and they make a decent cup of coffee. If you've never tried a Miami Bakehouses' pie or sweet, then you won't be disappointed. Miami Bakehouse hasn't won over 300 awards for no reason.
