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.

You won't find a better pie in FNQ- seriously. Nothing compares to these. Large, full, heavy, delicious, and perfect crust. I always get the steak and kidney!! You can even get mash, peas and gravy to go with it. That being said, expect the service to be rude, and downright horrible. Check their hours of operation too. They were closed... More

I passed in front of his store while i was in Cairns in January, and saw all the awards on the window. Back home i checked the place on TA, saw the reviews, and decided to drop by. Pies are big and DELICIOUS ! Not too salt, not too dry, just perfect ! Try, you will see !

Was doing the pie tour in Cairns and the surrounding area and almost missed this place out! 'It isn't a pie if it isn't Meldrums' so they say. The verdict, pretty damn good pie! the choice is bewildering and I'm sure you could have a different pie each night without it feeling too laborious. I just tried a simple meat... More

If you feel like an Australian pie - this is the place to go in Cairns. The savoury pie selection is incredible and the lamb pie is the star for me, with delicious lamb and vegetables in a light curry sauce! There is also a variety of sweets including lamingtons, cakes etc. Service is always quick and friendly. You'll have... More
