Warm up with Glenorie’s famous pies and pastries.
Glenorie, a semi-rural suburb in Sydney’s north-west which is part of the Hills District is a great place for families. It is a suburb for those who want a quiet and tranquil place that has the charm of a countryside feel but isn’t too far from other urban areas. This peaceful rural setting with wide open spaces and green leafy surroundings claims to host the best bakery in Sydney.
If you’re looking for a family friendly place to have breakfast or lunch, you should check out Glenorie Bakery. Situated in Glenorie Shopping Village, Glenorie Bakery boasts of its award-winning meat pies, a vast array of in-house baked breads, cakes and deli items. Glenorie Bakery has a rustic, homey atmosphere with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. A popular destination for weekend drives, it’s a place where you would want to stay, eat, drink and just relax after a hard days’ work. The fireplace sure hits the spot on cold chilly days.
We ordered their famous signature beef pie with gravy, mash and peas, the Farmer’s Bakehouse Breakfast, and a bacon and egg roll. We finished off the meal with a salted caramel mousse cake and their famous lemon meringue eclair. Everyone loves a meat pie, but with the addition of mash, gravy, and peas it makes it a proper meal. If you want something hearty in the morning, their Farmer’s Bakehouse Breakfast is the meal for you. Don’t forget to try their desserts and coffee while you are there.
Pros and Cons
The bakery has an array of interesting things to eat while you are there from savoury to sweet and even freshly baked bread. Glenorie Bakery also offers gluten-free goods which are sold in the freezer section for you to take home. There is ample parking and the venue is large enough to cater for functions with a cubby house outside for the little ones to enjoy. Glenorie Bakery not only provides something stimulating to the palate but also pleasing to the eyes. With a lot of their vintage equipment and toys, it’s like coming into a small museum. The downside is that you need to get in early as it fills up quickly which means that you may be waiting for your food for a while.
The bakery and cafe is an interesting place to visit to look around with old machinery exhibited throughout. There is also a toy train that runs around near the ceiling every thirty minutes. It’s an affordable place where you can come with friends and family and not feel pressured to leave.
