Looking for homemade pies and glutein free menu?

Main street Braidwood, Poppie's is your place to go.

You will find Poppie's on Wallace in the building that housed the original first bakery built in Braidwood in 1857; it is believed to be the first building to be built in Braidwood that was three levels. The original hardwood flooring and fire places are still there so are the original ovens in the back room with giftware and more seating to enjoy your meal or cuppa.

Enjoy living history at an ideal location to stop with ample street parking just around the corner, a good start for exploring Braidwood's arts and craft shops, antiques, exhibitions and unique gift wares. 

In the words of a patron: "If you haven't been down to Poppie's on Wallace, maybe it should be on your "to do" list. We thought the sausage rolls and meat pies were outstanding. Until today. We got to try Poppie's chicken satay pie. Talk about tasty! And the fact that you could actually see big chunks of chicken in it, even better, the pastry was second to none. Well done Michelle Grant and Co."

What do we offer?

Sit by the fireplace during winter, enjoy a good homemade meal and watch the world go by. Or sit in the leafy garden at the rear under the cool shade of mature trees and enjoy a meal with friends or a romantic tea for two. Easy access to the courtyard and the rear entry to the gift shop.

Our offerings are all home made using the best ingedients sourced locally:

Enjoy a meal and browse the shelves that are not only there for decoration but are loaded with beautiful items and gifts, including Woodwick Candles, teapots, china and other select gift items.
