Delicious pies in all variety at a reasonable price. The service is good and has some limited outdoor seating, which is nice to people watch. My friend and I each purchased different pies, and were thoroughly pleased with out selections and our sampling of the other.

Good value, excellent range of traditional Aussie pies to suit all tastes, but these run out by 2 pm so best for an early lunch! Quaint ambience, very friendly staff, lots of regulars always a good sign.

...anytime of the day. They have a great selection of pies with a great flaky crust. The employees were friendly and helpful. Pies are $5-$6 a piece, and there is something for everyone.

Best place for a pie in my opinion. It's a quality bakery in general, just look at how busy it always is! Get there early to avoid disappointment though - they sell pretty quickly.

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!
