The Hot and Crusty Country Bakery
184 Barker Street
The Bakery That Smells As Fresh As It Tastes
This little and locally owned bakery in the heart of Castlemaine can't be beaten on variety, taste, and price. It truly has all you need in a bakery. Freshly made bread every day: whole, sliced, and in rolls. Savoury pies, pasties, and sausage rolls. Sweet pastries, slices, and cakes. And of course, great coffee. The staff are also known for their friendliness and there are clean tables to sit on for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon tea.
"Very nice food, both savoury and sweet. Good prices. Small shop and busy with people, but be patient: it’s worth the wait." - Susie

The Bakery People Always Come Back To
This bakery excels in savouries and sweets. The range of pies here is endless with traditional flavours to newer ones like chicken curry, prawn and garlic, and pulled pork. It has a huge range of cakes and pastries too; apple slice, hedgehog, bee sting, carrot cake, and vanilla slice. This is the go-to bakery for workmen in the area and there’s a reason why.
"BEST pies ever! We always stock up when in Castlemaine. The staff are lovely and the cakes... I must mention the cakes… The vanilla slice is amazing!" – Bianca
We found this little bakery by chance. All four of us had a different pie and all four were delicious…. Would recommend to other pie lovers.” - Rosalie
