Best Fruit Mince Pies in Melbourne
Best Mince Pies in Melbourne... Time to let out your belt a notch or two. We are looking for proper shortcrust pastry, quality fruit with real citrus hit of the peel, and overall satisfaction including look and design of the mince pies. We hate overcooked filling, overspiced mince pies and hard pastry.

6. Rustica Sourdough - Fitzroy
Rustica is a star of the Melbourne bakery scene and their mince pies are no exception. We've enjoyed a tour of their premises previously and seen the mince pies before and after baking. Brandy soaked mince pies have been a hit over the years with fruit soaked in brandy for four months, giving this mince pie an intense flavoursome filling.
