Lots of pies and cakes. Pies are baked on-site I think. Had a Steak and Onion pie which as very good. The place is clean with plenty of seating. They also have a toilet for patrons which is clean and tidy. Stop for a pie...More

Food was acceptable and prices was fair. I had a hotdog and it was a 7/10. I paid $4 for it which was a good price.

I was recommended Waack’s bakery coffee by a friend a few months ago. It’s one of the nicest coffees in Ararat and so affordable. Their iced coffees are fantastic and only $4.90, where’s anywhere else is $6+. Very underrated

If you visit Ararat, you have to go to Waack's and get a vanilla slice - sensational! Visited whilst on a drive around the area. Friendly service.
