Meldrum's is the place to go if you are looking for lunch on the go or just simply a really good pie! There isn't much to fault - pastry is flaky, pies are always fresh, service is excellent and they have a wide variety of pies. The pies aren't super cheap, averaging around $5 to $6 but are definitely worth... More

Been twice. Prawn and scallop mornay and steak and mushroom w pepper both sensational. As an astute 'judge' of a good pie and these are true gold medalists!

I've eaten a lot of pies, my wife will attest to that. And meldrums Pireas are right up there with the best. They aren't cheap, but you get exactly what you pay for. The range is staggering & very fresh. I had the special of the day - A Scallop & Prawn Pie with Mornay Sauce & Fresh Shallots My... More

Was very excited to find Meldrum's doing gluten free pies now. Have so missed eating a meat pie now for years. My family always raved about Meldrum's but I had to miss out. Not any more. Had the the plain pie (its the only gluten free one) with a side of peas and it was beautiful. Pastry was perfect, better... More

Meldrums has been my favourite Cairns pie shop since the first time I tasted one of their pies several years ago. Sadly for me, I had to adopt a gluten free diet last year, and have been the grieving the end of my occasional Saturday morning pie breakfast; however, pie joy has returned to my life as I discovered this...

Meldrums would have to sell the best and freshest pies in Cairns. They are a decent size and packed full of quality fillings. The choices range from your standard meat pie to a huge variety of other flavours. Just Outstanding local and fresh unlike the rest. Do yourself a favour and Go.

This place is definitely not open in the evening or late afternoon (we tried to go twice), but we finally made it on a Saturday late morning (loved the nearby market too). The pies were very reasonably priced and were DELICIOUS. My partner was going to just have a bite of mine, and after doing so, she promptly went and... More

We enjoyed the food. We went probably around 11:30 on a Monday. There were tons of pies available. Many reviews we read prior to arriving in Cairns stated they would sell out quickly. We tried two different pies and they were both really good! We would have gone more than once, but there are several great food options in Cairns!

Few things crafted by human hand are as glorious as a Meldrum pie. My advice is simply to buy bigger pants, you have many many many pies to consume.
