Great pies, yummee!

We visit this pie shop[ each time we come to Cairns. There is a great range of pies and we are never disappointed. The coffee is great and one cup is rarely enough as it is so good. Staff are wonderful.

I have been visiting for many years but had not tasted for a couple of years. Enjoyed very tasty and healthy pies for lunch with friends. An excellent lunch enhanced by the attentive and friendly staff which made this a most enjoyable experience and memory. Thank you Meldrum's team.....

It's been a few years since I was last in Cairns to be able to enjoy a pie at meldrums. I must say that the pepper garlic steak pie is just amazing. So full of flavour with a crisp pastry surrounding it. Lots of good steak... And all the others looked so good! When in Cairns, do try.

Definitely the best pie shop in cairns, a little pricey but good value for money. Try the bacon and egg pie for a huge breakfast but the plain pie is pretty rocking too.

The best pies I've ever had. Make sure you take peas with them, they are divine too. But be there early, they sell out pretty quickly. When we came for lunch at 1pm a lot of tastes were already sold out.

There is nothing more satisfying than a cheese and bacon pie freshly baked with added potato and gravy! My mouth waters just thinking about this place. It's a must try...

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

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.
