Where to Grab the Best Pies in Sydney

1. Glenorie Bakery

Best pies in Sydney at Glenorie Bakery
Glenorie Bakery is home to some of the best pies in Sydney.

A family bakery in every sense of the word and an icon of the Hills District, Glenorie Bakery is renowned for its signature meat pies—and for good reason. Handmade locally using 100% NSW beef, then cooked to perfection in their signature gravy mix, it’s not hard to see why they’re so popular. Drool!

Location: 4/930 Old Northern Rd, Glenorie

2. Flour and Stone

This iconic Woolloomoolloo bakery is famous for serving the goods when it comes to cakes, pastries, tarts and baked goods.

While Flour and Stone are perhaps lesser-known for their pie offering, that doesn’t mean they’re anything shy of delicious. We’re talking sumptuous flavour combos like chicken, leek and tarragon; lamb, potato and rosemary; and a drool-worthy ratatouille and feta option.

Location: 43 Riley St, Woolloomooloo

5. The Upper Crust

A Northern Beaches favourite, The Upper Crust in Collaroy has been making some of the best pies in Sydney since 1948, and their menu is satisfyingly extensive. Steak pies, lamb pies, chicken pies, vegetable pies—you name it, they probably serve it.

Our picks would have to be the Mexican steak pie with salsa, red kidney beans, sour cream and cheese, or the chicken, avocado and brie pie, which showcases Tasmanian brie and fresh avocado. Delicious!
