The cool (and sustainable) kid of Copa has made a name for itself with incredibly unique pastries, breads, cakes and other bakes goodies. Hayley and Jo are a family team, relocating to the Central Coast after working for known Sydney establishments including cult-favourite, Black Star Pasty.

2. Bells Bakery, Killcare
A bakery resides at luxury restaurant Bells at Killcare, a destination in its own right with its luxurious boutique accommodation and The Wild Flower Dining and Bar eatery.
