Pacific Haven Bakery – Currimundi QLD

Pacific Haven Bakery

Another week and another small road trip down to the southern end of the Sunshine Coast. I put a call out a few weeks ago asking for suggestions and I received a overwhelming response to visit one place and one place only Pacific Haven Bakery.

Situated on Buderim Street Currimundi, this place has been around for years. For all those followers not from QLD, Currimundi is a suburb on the Sunshine Coast between Kawana and Caloundra. This place is a true family affair consisting of Noel, Vicki (dad & mum) Ash (daughter) Glen (son in law) & Joel (son) !!! These guys took over the place in 2014 with Glen the only person to have baking experience.

Glen started applying is trade in Melbourne from the age of 16 and worked at several places before Noel and Vicki bought the Bakery at Currumundi.

With zero baking experience apart from Glen. This family purchased a business 2 states away, also these guys hadn’t even been to the Sunshine Coast let alone knew where the hell Currumundi was !!!!! Over the past 6 years they haven’t looked back. Now employing over 10 staff and serving every variety of food known to man. From 🥧’s to wraps, sandwiches even hot chips !!! Plus add in a GOLD medal in 2018 for their Chilli Beef 🥧 this place is LEGENDARY !!!!

Upon arrive I was greeted with 16 different variety’s of 🥧’s to try. It would’ve been unfair to choose just one 🥧 so I had to try several of their masterpieces. I tested the award winning Beef Chilli 🥧 (OMG !! OMG !! WOW !! WOW!!!) Chicken Satay (INSANE) before deciding to do my review on their Chunky Steak, Caramelized Onion, Pan fried Bacon & Cheese !!!!!!

🥧🥧🥧🥧 THE REVIEW 🥧🥧🥧🥧

1. Value for Money – At $5.70 this was unbelievable value !!!!! The quality of the ingredients and the size was great. Once again to get a 🥧 under 6 bucks is a great find. This was a easy score. 10/10
2. Meat Ratio – Almost full !!!!. This 🥧 was fully loaded and not much room left. 9.5/10
3. Meat Flavour – I could dribble on and on with big words no one would understand but to put it simply this 🥧 was BLOODY AWESOME !!!! This score was a no brainer 10/10
4. Pastry – So flakey and the color was perfect. Loved everything about this pastry . 9.5/10
5. Temperature – One word “PERFECT” 10/10

🥧🥧🥧🥧. Overall 49/50 🥧🥧🥧🥧

This was a huge score, but seriously this 🥧 was divine. Every category was almost perfect. The value for money for the ingredients you got was mint !!! The Flavor was crazy crazy good !!!!! I loved the bacon rashes and the meat was so tender. Some could argue that the pastry looked a tad burnt but I loved that dark color and the temperature was perfect.

These guys are serious 🥧 makers and are continuing to come up with new varieties of 🥧’s and flavors. With over 16 different varieties of 🥧’s you couldn’t go wrong.

Ash, Glen & the entire family are passionate and driven. These guys are operating a terrific business and want to be the best they can !!!! I absolutely love the fact these guys took a huge risk moving interstate with limited baking experience apart from Glen. With bloody hard work !!!! This place is pumping and these guys are a true inspiration.

This place is a one stop shop !! They bake it, make it, fry it and then serve it !!!! So this weekend get in the car and pop in and see these legends. The hardest decision your going to have is choosing what NOT to have. I could have spent hours in this joint sampling absolutely everything !!!!!

Once again a massive thanks for having me in guys and allowing me to share your 🥧journey. I absolutely love sharing success stories like yours. I will be a regular and most likely be a serial pest in your shop for many years to come.
