My daughter and I recently had breakfast at LilliPad before heading to the airport on a Saturday morning. The Eggs Benedict was quite delicious but unfortunately the presentation let it down and it was not photo-worthy. However, the chocolate berry crepes were gorgeous and absolutely scrumptious! Huge serves also! The service was friendly and the coffee went down a treat.... More

Well if you want a big feed, this is the place to go.... if you can get in! We tried a couple of times and it was packed, when we finally got a table it was well worth it. To say you get big serves is an under statement. We could not finish all our breakfast, they are very generous... More

I absolutely adore this place, its always busy which can make it hard to get a table but its always been worth the wait. Service is exceptional and the food is delicious. Unfortunately now that we have a baby we've not been able to get back in as its not very pram friendly, We miss you Lillipad!

Massive portions, average food, has good options for vegetarians. Not my favourite place to eat but I'll go back if I'm really hungry.

This place is a gem in Cairns. The sizes are fantastic but the service is quite slow. They don't offer table service either. Quantity & presentation is amazing for the price. Wide selection on menu. Breakfast is the best time to experience.

I love the food at this place. There is a massive variety to choose from if you're a Vego like me, this is amazing and makes such a change from the 2 or 3 choices at most restaurants. The portions are huge so I wouldn't eat anything beforehand and it's unlikely you'll need much afterwards! The drinks are also very... More

Got the word from a local that the breakfast is very good. He was right! I love eggs benedict and there were plenty of options. I went bacon, it was not over crispy, how I like it. The eggs were wonderfully runny and combined with the hollandaise just right! My mate went for the burrito with scrambled and chorizo -... More
