What is the true meaning of Christmas? It’s not about presents. It’s not about having some time off work. And it’s certainly not about being surrounded by family and loved ones.
It’s about fruit mince pies. Let’s be real.
If you ask us, fruit mince pies should be available all year round, not just at Christmas time. So as an ode to this delicious festive dessert, here's where to get the best fruit mince pies in Perth.
Mary Street Bakery
Highgate And West Leederville
Obviously if you want a sensational baked good, you go to the baking specialists—which means you go to the people at Mary Street Bakery. They have your Christmas covered with their festive fruit mince pies.
Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie
Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie is an institution, and they don’t muck around when it comes to Christmas. You can get a box of fruit mince pies; a platter of fruit mince pies; or a FRUIT MINCE PIE AND CHOCOLATE BROWNIE PLATTER. Oh my god. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
The people at Abhi’s make us so happy every day of the year with their delicious baked treats, but they make us extra happy at Christmas time with their sensational fruit mince pies. Plus they also have gluten free versions made with spelt flour. Because Christmas is not a time for discrimination, is it?
