"Doughn't" Go Past This Bakery, You "Knead" To Try A Pie
The Pinjarra Bakery & Patisserie rivals any competitor near or far. Now the people in the suburb of Maddington don't have to go far to receive their slice of the pie.

Hearing about the Pantaleo family opening another Pinjarra Bakery, we simply couldn't resist the temptation to test if the quality was still the same. What a great excuse to sample the pies and pastries that await around 20 kilometres south-east of Perth.

Finding the bakery was easy. Travelling along Albany Highway it stood out like an oasis in the Mexican desert. If you're not after a hot treat, there are always plenty of cold refreshments on offer too.

Milkshakes, smoothies & frappes are made to order, as well as the standard store bought drinks. Gelato and sorbet is prepared in-house and comes as a scoop or in a cone. Apparently lower in calories or fat than regular ice-cream, gelato is a healthier 'swap it' alternative.

Pies and pastries are not entirely a healthy option, but we came for the treat with 'everything in moderation.' The bakers on the other hand have made these delights taste great to excess.

Which made our decision all the more difficult what to choose?

We scanned the menu, looked at each other and realised there's no escaping the usual favourites. At least we knew what to expect, indulging in the Tropic Thunder, Potato Beef and Red Wine & Garlic Beef pies.

To critique the food and drinks meant the next part of the excuse was fitting in some sweets or pastries. We chose an Apple Turnover, Caramel Slice and Choc Mint Slice. The food, as expected, was scrumptious and filling.

Seating arrangements to eat our lunch included bench seats, bench tables & bar stools, a small corner niche, many long and small tables. One is spoilt for choice all food & beverages are available dine-in or takeaway.

There's a small enclosed kids play area for the little ones that's beautifully decorated. Mums and Dads who want to sit nearby and have a quiet chat, a coffee and a snack can do so easily, without the interruption or worry of children wandering off unsupervised.

Staff are friendly and helpful. If they don't have the pie, pastie, sausage roll or hot menu item you want ready to go, they are only too happy to warm up your selection in the oven; takes about 5 minutes.

Don't forget the wholesome, freshly made sandwiches, rolls and wraps. Like everything here even the good old-fashioned bread that started the need for a bakery is outstanding.

After paying a little on the dear side, at 'yeast' we could say the 'knead' to come here was worth the 'dough' we paid.
