Best pies in Cairns is a big claim but one that this cafe lives up to very well. They have a good range and the pies we tried were just delicious. Highly recommended.

We have tried pies all over Australia and the best pies we have had are Meldrums pies in Cairnes. My husband swears by them. Wish they would open a shop in Daylesford Vic. Thanks Meldrums for the best pie experience. Fred & Marg Baldock Vic.

Visited yesterday 5 November 2014 for a quick bite at lunch time. I'd read here on TA that you have to get there early as the pies can and often do sell out very quickly. Unfortunately, this was the case. As a vegetarian I know my choice will always be somewhat limited wherever I go. All but one veg pie... More

This is how pies should be. Full of the filling of your choice and lovely light pastry. We had Carribean Chicken and Beef Mexicana, excellent taste and well spiced. Our friends are vegetarian and there was only one pie left for them and a vegetarian quiche. We got there at lunch time and quite a few of the pies were... More

I had checked reviews for cafe food in preparation for a quick visit to Cairns this week. So, decided to give Meldrums a go. Hugely impressed with the display of awards etc that they have accrued and proudly had on show. The room itself was conveniently (for a pie shop) laid out with some quite suitable tables and chairs for... More

Choose the Thai Chicken Macadamia Pie after reading the newspaper articles on the wall inside the shop and which pies got the latest awards and medals at the last show. It did not disappoint and I was left wanting to try another! Make sure you visit!

You won't be disappointed for choice, value for money or taste!!! They are an award winning establishment for a reason!! So many different flavours and choices. I can't wait to go back and try another pie and cake. Also bought fresh bread and it was divine - bit of butter and Vegemite made it heavenly.
