Best pie’s in Melbourne
These days, the humble meat pie is getting the royal treatment with organic ingredients replacing the lucky dip mystery meat marvels at the milk bar. At Dench Bakers in North Fitzroy there are specially baked breakfast pies available to take away or eat in at the welcoming bakery café. Choose from egg and bacon or mushroom and feta.
At the Paris end of Collins Street, city slickers can find Melbourne’s poshest pies at Café Alcaston. Tucked away and unassuming, this gem has been keeping office workers happy with homemade pies for over twenty years. Five different pies are made fresh on site every day, including leek, chicken and champagne pies, beef and red wine pies and a cracking shepherd’s pie. Each is served with salad and home-made chutney.
On the southern side of town in Port Melbourne, Pure Pie sticks to doing one thing well. All of their pies have artfully pleated, buttery pastry and irresistible fillings like beef, cheddar, Guinness and thyme; or chicken, white wine, mushroom and tarragon. You can pick up a freshly baked family sized pie or an individual pie in the Pure Pie store and in shops and at markets all around Melbourne.
