Pies so good you'll never want a plain mince pie again
Pies are a staple in every full blooded Aussies diet, and there are plenty of cheap mystery meat pies to satisfy the market. But one bakery in Perth has taken the art of making pies to a whole new level and in the process become one of the best pie makers in the world.

Miami Bakehouse' humble origins can be traced back to the tiny country outpost of Falcon, just a few minutes south of Mandurah, on the incredible Old Coast road. The bakehouse sits in the quiet and low key Miami Plaza - a popular stopover destination before the Forrest highway was opened.

Now, we've all seen the "we only use the best ingredients" label plastered over almost every piece of food imaginable, but Miami bakehouse really do mean what they say, you only need one bite of their pies to realise this. Truth in advertising, just one area in which Miami bakehouse impresses.

The success of Miami bakehouse comes down to simple, old school principles. They bake everything from scratch, every single day of the year. The ingredients are largely locally sourced from the exceptional foods on offer in WAs south west. And the result of this? Over 400 awards worldwide!

So what do they stock? Forget about mince pies, traveller pies and that all too common mystery meat. Think lasagne pies, game meat pies, garlic prawn pies, chicken chow mien pies and even lamb rogan josh pies. And for those full blooded blokes who think nothing is more Aussie than a plain meat pie, I have three words for you: chicken parmi pie. Enough said.

Yes, you do pay a little more than you would for a traditional pie, with prices around the $5-$10 mark. But for that, you get a bigger, fresher and more filling pie with the peace of mind of knowing where the filling came from. And with such an exceptional range, you'll probably take up ten minutes of the counter hands time just trying to decide.

The incredible success story of our homegrown world class bakery has now seen it expand into three stores and providing many cafes and roadhouses all over the West Australian coast line. Besides the three bakery locations, you can find Miami pies at the following places:
Caffe Arjo, Stubbs St, Lake Grace
Caltex Cataby Roadhouse, Brand Hwy, Cataby
Caltex Jurien Bay
Equinox Cafe, 343 Queen Street, Busselton
G&R Hot Bread Shop, Kalgoorlie
Gull Bunbury, Strickland Street, Bunbury
Heather Cafe, 262 Canning Hwy, Como
Kaoss Kafe, Kalgoorlie
Kitchen Warehouse, Armadale Rd, Jandakot
Pardoo Roadhouse, Pardoo
Pengos, 153 Arcadia Drive, Shoalwater
Shed Cafe, Williams Woolshed, 101 Albany Hwy, Williams

The bakehouse also makes its own bread, sweets, cakes, doughnuts and everything else you'd expect at a bakery, only to much higher than expected quality. The hot cross buns are some of the most widely regarded in Australia and you'll be hard pressed to find anyone who could give a bad word about their range of breads and savouries.

So next time your travelling down south and feel a little peckish, you might not want to pass this. The only problem is that after having Miamis pies, you'll never be able to eat a Mrs. Macs again!

Mystery Meat pies, hmmm.
My favourite of the Miami Bakehouse pies are their seafood ones... And I will always remember the garlic prawn one too. Yumminess wrapped in puff pastry. Salivating now...
