"A Southland Institution"
The Fat Bastard Pies bakery is its own local institution offering handcrafted cake, coffee, and of course iconic Fat Bastard Pies. While small in size, it is big in heart. There is a line out the door most lunchtimes, but it never takes long to get through. That’s the great thing about getting a piping hot pie in a brown paper bag, there is no waiting around.
Most Fat Bastards run into the shop with their eyes glued to the pie cabinet. Once they have their golden pastry circle, they tuck it under their arm and scurry off down the street back to work. Tourists tend to hang around in the shop more, taking a stool in-store and immersing themselves in pastry goodness. Many of our visitors purchase branded Fat Bastard Pies t-shirts, trucker caps and even get photos of themselves in front of the Fat Bastard sign.
