So anyway, it seems as if Jesters has changed their slogan from Funny name, serious about pies to Ridiculously Tasty. Hmm, I think this can be said about their freshly made to order crunchy golden chips but making the claim World's best chips takes guts and DAMN GOOD chips!
Jesters is a franchise specialising in pies and housemade sausage rolls, as well as various coffees, smoothies, cookies, slices and chips on offer, depending on each individual store.
So yeah, this was my one heck of a healthy, nutritious breakfast that got me through

To the left, to the left is the second vegetarian choice that Jesters offers for a temporary time, called the Spanakopita but more affectionately known as The Spanky. With shredded spinach, sparsely found sundried tomatoes and isolated olive pieces and cream in a feta, parmesan and cheddar cheese sauce, this is one calorific vegetarian choice.
THREE CHEESES IN ONE PIE!, is that fat or is that obese?! Surprisingly it tastes so much like a regular pizza. Pizza in a pie, TWO JUNK FOODS together! But with much more sparsely populated ingredients compared to a pizza.
This is how Jesters has healthy pies - they just don't give you anything to eat. :(
|Chip box & Aioli dip|
After voraciously downing the chips, it may leave you feeling a bit dry mouthed and dying for water. But just remember the good times you just had a moment ago and all is forgiven.
To keep up with their World's Best Chips claim, quality is maintained by making the chips fresh only when you order, not like the sad waiting chips you get at fast food chains that put themselves to shame.
And the aioli is good schtuff.
And they are not only good for chips!...

S is definitely for salivateeeee
My face is going to end up like a pie soon enough.
But sauce is abundant and meat is sparse.
If you're lucky you might even get meat in your pie! :P
A chocolatey and refreshing treat that rapidly transforms into ice cream soup.
A thick slab of caramel sandwiched with a shortbread crust and a topping layer of a solid block of chocolate are the compilations to this hefty slice, with the sticky, sweet, ooey gooey caramel being the star of the show.
3 different textures intertwining together with 3 different degrees of sweetness - may result in 3 reactions: mmm - toooo sweeeeet - ugh!
|Honey Macadamia Slice|
Its a nutter's dream to see a myriade of almonds, pecans and macadamias all tightly bound together with a coat of syrupy honey latticed with shredded coconut strips. With a oats biscuit crust base as the only not-hard thing about this slice, be prepared to chip your teeth.
You definitely need a whole row of sweet teeth to gobble this slice up! They get stuck everywhere, like adhesive tape to your teeth, gums, roof of your mouth, your smile!
Nevertheless, it does have a rich tangy flavour, although not reminiscent of lemon. But it does melt in your mouth after it has fun exploring and disintegrating all over the place!
The softness of the slice coupled with the faint crunch of the crushed nuts throughout makes for perfect dessert and leaves the priceless chocolate-stained smile.
Jesters offers a large variety of unusual but creative and imaginative creations of pies that differentiate themselves to the normal average standard pie. To emphasise the dynamic nature of the business there's an ongoing, ever changing, rotational "pie of the month" on offer every few weeks to keep the spark alive.
Fun and quirky yet sometimes uninspirational pie names complement the daring and unconventional approach to putting different ingredients in pies - how about some mango chutney or hollandaise sauce in your pie? :O
$4.70 probably won't fill you up, cause it definitely doesn't do it for me. I don't even think $9.40 would satisfy my insatiable appetite.
When it comes down to the bottom line, go for the chips.
You won't regret it.
But you will regret not getting it.
