Baketico by Wonder Pies is by Scottish-born chef Raymond Capaldi and his partner, PR consultant Jodi Crocker. In 2017, Capaldi swapped white-linen tablecloths for a factory, and launched wholesale pie business Wonder Pies. Today, the duo runs several retail shops under the name Baketico, and make their much-loved pies at the Wonder Pies flagship.

At the Collingwood outpost, the cabinet holds a plethora of pies. The Mac & Cheese number is filled with macaroni, bechamel, cheddar, mustard and Cheezels, while the Piesagne has layers of pasta, Wagyu beef and bechamel. If you’re stopping by in the morning, go the breakfast pie, which is filled with free-range eggs, smoked bacon and cheddar.

There’s also a plant-based mince, carrot and potato pie for vegans, but traditionalists will still find chunky beef and gravy pies; classic, beef sausage rolls; and a Cornish pastie with braised beef, potato and vegetables. For those looking beyond the pie display, there are also loaded focaccias and toasties (including a crowd-favourite Cheeseburger with crushed beef, gherkins and American cheddar).

There are also sweeter things such as a best-selling Lemon Delicious cake, glazed pink custard doughnuts, and gluten-free orange tea cake. Plus, coffee by Code Black and bags of beans to go.
