“Yummy food!!”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

This bakery is great but you gotta be quick! They run out of food quite fast. It is opposite the Paihia beach so very handy and the staff are nice too. Pies are nice and a good variety. Kept in clean and cool environment and sandwiches are tasty too. If they are out of pies and you are wanting to purchase them cold or frozen, they will sell you those too to heat up back home or in your hotel. You just have to ask!

“Pies are personal”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 via mobile

If an authentic New Zealand interpretation of the familiar is what you are after, then this little bakery is worth a visit. Be early, their popular styles can sell out..in fact, really early and you might grab a seat at one of the few tables outside and catch the magnificent, pink sunrises. Staff are genuinely friendly and proud of what they bake. Everything is fresh and great kiwi produce abounds. I'm not a pastry fan - my family are fussy - and the other treats impressed me too. Worth a stop!

“Edible yes, gourmet no and what does world famous mean exactly?”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

We were out for something to ward off the hunger pangs and the Implausible claim of ‘World Famous Pies & Cooked Breakfast’ still attracted my wife.
This bakery did come up on a previous Tripadvisor forum, now closed and I thought that given their captive clientele in this area, I would update and start a review to test their claim. Well, we had a world famous pie and it tasted just like an ordinary one.

Maybe some other reviewer will check out the ‘World famous cooked breakfast’.

My instinct tells me any claim to the status of gourmet and awesome, according to the Tucker's first law of culinary self promotion cannot be so, and Krumz Bakery, proved no exception to that world famous law.

Trouble is, a sign promoting ordinary pies would be a world famous waste of time.
