New Norcia Bakeries, 163 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn WA 6016, Phone 9443 4114.
Like Jack Horner, In The Corner … New Norcia Bakeries Café in Mount Hawthorn has been open since the 1990’s. It’s a cheery café loaded with bread and baked goods of all kinds. Oh, and Chicken Pies.
There was a time that we visited this café regularly but then moved out of the area. So it was very pleasant to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee and one of their delicious Chicken and Vegetable Pies.
And I don’t use the term “enjoy” loosely because their coffee is awesome, strong and hot with fab Crema.
Oh, and that Pie. The pastry is so light and flaky plus it is jam packed with succulent chicken pieces. While the sauce is light and combines well with the minutely diced vegetables. There is not a lot more I can say, as this pie is da bomb.
Love that they have opened up the kitchen and you can watch the pastry chefs making and baking. I also admire the wooden floors and the Heritage Listed building every time I visit, it’s gorgeous.
The aromas wafting around this café are marvellous, what with the coffee, bread and baked goods it’s so fragrant.
Artisan bread, pastries, cakes and pies, what more could you want.
