The Shaggy Cow Mittagong

Shaggy Cow Mittagong - Pie

The Shaggy Cow Mittagong is a popular lunchtime venue on the turn-off to Bowral. It has quite a gourmet and seasonal menu with all food made fresh on-site. Despite not having pies on the menu year-round, there are still plenty of satisfying options on the menu to choose from and you can be guaranteed a pie during the month of June for Pie Time.

There is a hive of activity inside the cafe at its many tables. It seems to be where local business goers ‘do lunch’ and there is a small outdoor area to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine should the weather permit.

Running Stats:

  • Distance: 7km
  • Pie Running Time: 35 minutes

Pie Charts:

  • Pies: Pork with Beef Cheek, served on mash with a salad and free mocktail.
  • Pastry: OK. It was a filo style pastry which worked well with this pie. Compared with the recent butter based pastry we’d experienced it was a little lacking.
  • Filling: This was a very well constructed pie with complimentary flavours.
  • Cost: $28. Included a mocktail which was quite refreshing. Like a mojito minus the rum! Compared with other dine-in pies we’d tried this was priced quite high.
  • Sauce tax: None, sauce as included.

Southern Highlands Pie Trail Run

About The Author


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.
