Ben’s Bakehouse

This Darwin institution is back in town – yah!

This father and son team, Rob and Sam make the best pies in town.  The Bakehouse is named after Rob’ son, Ben.  They also make the best apple turnovers and their vanilla slice is pretty mean.  Although my friend Jan now makes the best vanilla slice – I did a taste test earlier in the week.  Jan has managed to beat Ben’s Bakehouse in the vanilla slice category, but only just!

Ben’s Bakehouse used to be located in the Anthony Plaza but have just reopened a few weeks ago at Luma Luma and best thing yet, they are open seven days a week.  Whilst sitting there having a pie one lunch it was interesting to note how people have walked from all over the CBD to have a pie from Ben’s.  It is a definite case of their reputation preceding them.  I love the way Darwin locals can be so loyal.

The best selection of pies and cakes and they make fabulous cakes to order for parties, wedding in fact anything.

I wish these guys the best of luck and hope that the business is a true success.
