Great Canadian breaky & really nice coffee and hot chocolate. Only downside to this place is that there are way too many tables that are too close together! Customers have no option but to push into each other or past each other. But the food, drinks and service were all good.

After hearing Lilly's Pad is worth the visit, I thought I'd find out for myself & sorry to say I was disappointed. Staff were average, I bought the fruit toast, tasted like it had been frozen for 6 months, my hot chocolate wasn't hot & my daughters pancakes were ordinary not fluffy at all. I wish I could say something... More

Food was delicious, we had the meat pie and pea and ham soup on special. However, if sitting inside you will note that the kitchen is quite open. Note to staff - we can hear everything you say. It doesn't make a pleasant lunch to hear you whinge about how the customer on the next table was standing in your... More

Great coffee. Yum but basic food. Lovely atmosphere. Great location. Well worth a try and only just around the corner from a The Mall with Woolies parking right there!

All the food is home made including the jam with the scones. We just wanted tea and scones and even though they were extremely busy they managed to fit us in with a smile. Had a lovely afternoon tea and enjoyed the fresh fruit juices and wonderful service. Have been for breakfast before which was also great. Will keep coming... More

My family and I were visiting Leura for the day and decided to have lunch at lily pads from the reviews and gluten free options as my two boys have Coeliac. Table service was slow, I ordered 2 open steak sandwiches gluten free for the boys and I was quite specific that it had to be gluten free...the steak sandwiches... More

We so appreciated a warm welcoming cafe as respite from the cold day. The staff were as warm as the heating they provided. The tables were placed very close together to seat as any as possible inside. The staff were quick to apologises and no one seemed to mind. The menu offered great choice and supplemented by daily blackboard specials... More

Lunch here with family on a freezing Monday. Very good BLAT with poached eggs and salad. Others had steak sandwich, also delicious. Good coffee and service. One of our favourite restaurants in the Mountains.

What a cute little place. The staff are so lovely, the food is delicious (cafe style, but a nice change from the standard eggs & bacon), the coffee is tasty, and all reasonably priced. I'll definitely come again!

We happened upon this cafe off the beaten path (behind Leura Mall) and were delighted with lunch there. BLTA with lots of delicious aussie bacon on homemade thick slice of bread with roasted tomato, avo was delicious. Quiche and roasted vegetables ummmm. Home made rhubarb cobbler with thick cream, gluten free. Best cup of coffee (flat white) and Russian Assam... More
