Meat pies, apple pies, vegetable pies, potato pies… How good are pies? There is nothing quite like ‘em. Pies are the best.
You simply can’t beat biting into the supportive supple crust encasing gravy and your filling of choice. Although it can be easy to chuck a Four’N Twenty into the oven, there’s something utterly scrumptious about opting for a pie that’s a bit more bespoke. It’s a complete different experience than those packets form Woolies. Once you try a gourmet pie from one of these bakeries… you’ll understand what we’re talking about.
We’ve gone through Perth and done some serious taste testing, collected and measured our data, exchanged opinions, consulted with the pie Gods, and here, we’ve finally comprised a list of the very best pies in Perth… get your tomato sauce ready!

Oh, and their meat pies! Their traditional English Paté En Croute meat pie, is a classic British dish that is hard to come by in Perth.

This pie has developed a cult following.
