Part of the Southern ‘Pielands’ Gumnut franchise. The Gumnut Patisserie Mittagong acts as the beating heart of this local Gumnut pie enterprise. It forms the warehouse where the famed Gumnut pies are made and sent to the Bowral and Berrima branches. Bowral bound pie hounds may want to stop here for a pie to avoid weekend crowds and also parking in Bowral. There are walls full of awards and even a pastry chef hall of fame. If you were ever in doubt of the Southern Highlands dedication to baking then visit this store! It’s just off the main road in the industrial area of Mittagong.
- Distance: 6.5km
- Pie Time: 35 mins
We had tried almost the entire Gumnut menu by now so we opted for the shepherd’s pie (beef and potato) plus the sausage rolls here are so awesome, so whilst on a pie hunt it made a suitable side dish. Also, there were salted caramel milkshakes as a special which quickly made it to the order.
- Pies: Beef & potato; Sausage Roll
- Pastry: Whilst the pie lid was replaced with potato, the base was fresher than the other Gumnut outlets, given the pie is made on site.
- Filling: Hard to compare to a standard pie but the potato was quite creamy.
- Cost: $6:20 for gourmet pies; $5:30 for classics. ($2 extra for dine-in table service)
- Sauce tax: 30 cents a sachet.
Southern Highlands Pie Trail Run
The Southern ‘Pielands’ Trail Run went for the month of June. As ambassadors for ‘Pie time’ we ran to all of the 26 bakeries on the official Pie Trail to see what they had to offer. See our reviews of all 26 bakeries, their stories and their pies.

Ever since venturing out the back gate into the bush as a kid, I've had a curiosity to escape and explore as often as I could. It's fair to say that my curiosity has continued to grow instead of fade as the years go on. It eventually came time to turn a few scribbled notes into some legible stories and travel tips for anyone with a similar curiosity as me.
