No Pie in the Sky
It is many years since I first went to the Yatala Pie Shop on the Highway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It is only a vague memory. I've passed the turn off on many occasions saying to myself as I rushed past "One day I must go to Yatala Pie Shop", and at last it happened.

I saw the sign post and it was near lunch time, so I turned off the highway to see what changes had been made since my first visit, and to taste a steak pie.

Of course, I wasn't around when Yatala Pies first started it was some 130 years ago, when the little pie shop opened for business and it is extraordinary that the business continues successfully now.

I was delighted to find that it was not the shop that I remembered, but now a huge complex with indoor and outdoor seating for those who are great fans of the iconic Yatala Pies.

They have a drive-in, and when I arrived, which was around lunch time, there was a queue in the drive-in, and inside quite a long line of people were waiting to order their pies. Most of the tables in the cafe and out on the decks were busy with happy munching pie eaters.

The busy staff behind the counter kept the line moving, and there was only a short wait to be served.

The menu of pies includes the savoury ones check the menu here. There are plain steak pies, steak with mushroom, kidney, bacon, bacon and cheese, tomato and onion, chicken and vegie, and curry steak pies and so the list goes. There are also sausage rolls and pasties on the menu.

And the desserts? Apple, apricot, berry pies, and more. Do visit the website and checkout the information here.

They also assist with fundraising check the details here. No doubt a pie drive to raise funds for your school or community group would be successful. All the details are on the website.

I sat in the outside area, with tables and seats under cover and watched the local birdlife some of them wandering around the lawns ignoring the folk enjoying their lunch. There were tiny finches and other birds happily playing in the nearby bush.
