Cleressa Clark of Rainbow Beach holds the famous corn beef and white sauce pie from Ed’s Beach Bakery at Rainbow Beach – listed as No. 1 for Top Ten Pies around Australia, by Creek to Coast
Locals always knew Ed’s Beach Bakery pies were awesome, but now they have been made famous by being voted No 1 by Creek to Coast’s ‘Pie Connoisseur’.
The show’s cameraman, Jed, said he has “covered all the states of Australia with his job, every outback bakery you can think of, and has basically been on a never-ending quest to find the best pie there is out there.”
Jed narrowed down his top 10 pies he’s come across during his travels and number one on his list was Rainbow Beach’s own Ed’s Beach Bakery which scored a whopping 10 out of 10.
He said: “It’s one of the first stops as you drive into Rainbow Beach and opens at 4 am – tick and tick.”
And while Jed’s normally a steak, cheese and bacon kind of guy, at Ed’s it’s the corn beef and cheese sauce pie that seals the deal for him. He doesn’t even mind the six-hour round trip from Brisbane just to land himself one.
Camps Australia Wide have featured their favourite, the Corn Beef and White Sauce pie, on their website recently and said: “It just happens to be my favourite pie, at our local bakery. I don’t eat a pie very often – when I do have an urge for one, this is where I go!”
Cleressa Clark, who works at the bakery, said: “My favourite is the pepper pie – it is chunky steak and there’s cream, I love it though, it is quite popular too!”
Go ahead and try one, and can pick up your coffee there, too.
