Ok. Sorry guys. I’ll be right up front with this one. only if your really needing an actual sausage do I recommend this one. pastry was fine, but it only had half the expected filling. It was nearly all breadcrumbs and coursely chopped onions and it was a bit dry. mans given that there was almost no meat/filling, $5.30 is a tad rich.
We came for the bacon and egg toasties. But they have a bakery so we reviewed that as well. drew Bailingup has an eclectic collection of stores. It is a place that presents itself to the author as a place of “outside-of-the-box” thinkers. A public bathroom building in a octagon with all of the plumbing in the centre. A packing g shed turned into a cafe, mini museum and pharmacy. A scented new age oils, candles and balms shop… and a bakery called:
One nuggety sausage roll: pastry was flakey filling was a solid well seasoned hunk of sausage mince, almost no breadcrumbs in this bad boy. A tad more fatty but very tasty. good seasoning on the pastry glaze. Served in a double layered paper bag. $6 4.5/5
A ways down in the south of Western Australia, is a lovely little town on the way to Manjimup. Bridgetown. I came thru in the early afternoon in search of a bit of lunch. The bakery (as with most of the town’s shops) is on the Main Street in the old buildings. It was a cold and wet afternoon, and that bakery was warm and inviting, even with the COVID sign saying 4 customers at a time allowed in. The staff were cheerful as well.
The sausage roll: less than a fiver slightly bready filling (not much beef) well seasoned flakey pastry descent for a sausage roll bought about 2 pm on a Monday afternoon. 3.5/5 score.
When a bakery gets big enough to be a drive through venue you get Pinjarra Bakery and Patisserie. Walk in and it’s rather like walking in to a McCafé. Frappes and coffees abound, delightful looking pastries that many a trader might be enticed to buy with their coffee to go.

The sausage roll:
For something purchased at 8:30 am, I felt it was a bit hard and crusty.
Pastry 2.5/5 stars. A tad gooey.
Filling 3.5/5 stars. Small chunks of onion let us know that this sausage roll was made, not processed. Nice flavour, tasty and safe.
It’s a big claim but I’m going to put it out there:
Chittaway bakehouse do the best sausage rolls. (so far)
I waltz on in to the bakery. It looks like the good old fashionedAussie/Vietnamese run bakeries I grew with in the ‘burbs of Sydney. And there smiling at me are two very not-Asian Aussie ladies ready to serve baked goods to tradies et al. It’s almost 3 in the afternoon and the school pick up is on, the working day is coming to an end and yet I have an Ah-Maze-Zing sausage roll in a white paper bag ready to share with my friend.
