WORD spreads quickly where good food is concerned and one of the best ways to judge a bakery is by the quality of its meat pie. The meat pie, like a good coffee, doesn’t require especially discerning taste buds, but when it’s discovered, the word is quickly spread and a good food reputation takes hold.
I popped into the award-winning Tatura Bakery and Lunches to give the food a try, and let me just say, not only was the food delicious, but the ladies who run the place are absolutely lovely.
Tatura Bakery and Lunches business owner, Deborah Russell said, “This year we’ve won silver for our chicken and veggie pie, sausage roll and pastie in the ‘Great Aussie Pie’ competition and we also won a bronze for our meat pie, but we’re not just a bakery. We do a massive lunch trade with patrons lining up on the street to get in.”
Bakery manager, Sue Bevilacqua said, “We offer a big variety of freshly prepared lunches including casseroles, roasts, scalloped potatoes and egg and bacon rolls.”
Access to the bakery and courtyard has been made easier, catering to prams and wheelchairs and the mixture of warmth and shade makes the courtyard area really inviting.
Deborah said, “We’re very grateful to our loyal customers and staff and our talented baker Andrew Whitford who works hard to deliver consistently good food. Next time you’re in Tatura, drop in to Tatura Bakery and Lunches at 149 Hogan Street and be sure to try the meat pie!
