Old Bakery Stone Hut took our extensive bakery experience to a new level. From the 'Best Pies in the Universe' claim around the side to the value-added local produce (including wine) in the cafe, this bakery has it all. Hell, it's even got its own accommodation!!
As well it might …
In the southern Flinders Ranges halfway between Laura and Wirrabara, the imaginatively named Stone Hut -actually a collection of stone huts left from its previous life as a Cobb & Co station - is another 'blink and you'll miss it' town. Or it would be if not for the bakery.
Tragically, I'm unable to confirm the BPITU claim as our October 2010 visit was inexpertly timed for morning tea. What I CAN confirm, however, is that if had I been there at lunchtime, selecting a pie would have been a tough job! Morning tea was hard enough – the astounding choice on offer that is the sure sign of a good bakery also slowed down the service for the unfortunates waiting behind us!
Whatever the explanation, I'll bet almost anything you like that if (when!) you visit the Old Bakery Stone Hut you'll leave with more than you planned to!!
