Excellent local eatery

the meat pies are great, we had the pies with mash potatoes and gravy. We located this eatery in a write up in Fodor's Australia guide. A simple place with a few tables, good selection of pies, desserts, coffee but no toilets. You have to go to Gilligans a few doors down, it is a hostel.

I'm afraid this pie place is overhyped. But I've also been really lucky to have had the best meat pies in Edinburgh. We tried the steak, tomato, onion and bacon pie, the steak and mushroom pie and the custard tart. The pie crust is well made and quite fluffy, but the pie stuffing needs work. There isn't enough steak and... More

You will not be disappointed if you choose to eat here - only thing I recommend is get in early lunchtime otherwise your favourite may be sold out! I love their tuna mornay pie but just the good Ol meat pie & sauce is a treat. The bread and cakes on offer are always fresh and displayed lovely! The staff... More

Certainly not the worse pie I've ever had, wouldn't object if a friend wanted to go there. Perhaps a little overpriced - but that was expected given it's reputation. Might have a better experience dining in and not so close to closing time...

being a vegetarian isn't easy but places like Meldrums has a pie for all. Incredible pies, excellent service and a perfect place to feel like home. Highly recommend a stop by for the scrumptious pumpkin pie and mushroom and Gnocchi pie. Don't forget to order the side salad with bread of the day

My girlfriend and I were walking around the market and found meldrums on the opposite side of the block before our flight this morning! The staff was friendly, the pies warm, delicious and filling. If I find myself back in Cairns I will be stopping by yet again!

Visited this place to get take away after reading all the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. Average price for a pie is $5.80 and they have lots of gourmet flavours. We tried the Steak, chilli & cheese which had some nice heat to it; the macadamia chicken satay which was tasty but a bit spicy for our... More
