Each Thursday Mason Mummy and Nanny go to Tumblegum for morning tea before we shop. Cakes to die for, pies with lots of meaty filling, sausage rolls with the best flaky pastry. What a treat for all of us. The coffee is great, Mason loves cream cake with sprinkles and Mummy delights in vanilla slice. So good can't recommend highly... More

Better than eating in our motel - which offered meals to room, upon payment of surcharge - breakfast very poor choice at $3.50 per item - proper coffee here - along with baked items - I had an egg and bacon roll - quite tasty.

Beautiful bread and pastries with smiling staff, fresh sandwiches cut to order, great coffee, lots of tables and chairs with minimum foot traffic to ensure a peaceful snack or meal. Must stop in Kempsey

This is a great bakery and I often have a coffee and pie if in Kempsey at lunch time. But I've recently discovered their sandwich bar and it has the convenience of pre-made sandwiches or made to order. I can't fault their freshly made sandwiches using their own range of freshly baked breads and full, thick, delicious fillings. Great prices... More

This bakery has plenty to choose, and the staff are very helpful, even when the shop is full. If you would prefer to dine in you can.

Diverted onto town not wanting to go to Maccas on highway. Asked for shot of coffee on top of hot water. The coffee came out as a large although a small ordered.

Tumblegum has an excellent variety of traditional bakery products and also makes a great bacon and egg roll. One highlight is the Neenish Tart (pink or caramel). These are 1/3 the price of franchise places and three times as good. It is good there are other locations now including Port Macquarie.

When hunger strikes and you need a quick bite on the go, Tumblegum bakery provides a speedy and delicious solution. I enjoyed a chunky beef pie and coffee and it was very satisfying. The pie pastry is Devine.
