It has a huge variety of baked food and nice drinks including baking for particular seasons such as Easter and Christmas. The staff are nice. Value for money. I especially like some of the cakes. Not an everyday thing with my waistline concerns. Good for a treat. All visitors to Invercargill should call by at least once!

I am from the UK and was passing through when we spotted the bakery. I originate from Wigan, Lancashire (the home of the pie), but what a treat was in store with a fantastic selection of pies and pastries. Well worth the stop, parking outside and seating inside, friendly service and a treat not to be missed.

The pies are great, the slices are beautiful, the cakes are lovely. The bread is good and they've won awards for their hot cross buns! The coffee is good as well!

Last month we had my partners 50th bday cake made by colonial. Everyone commented on how yummy the chocolate cake was and presentation too was super. All fresh savoury and sweets available it's I think Invercargill's best bakery.
