We loved this place for breakfast and returned the next day to try something else. Lunch looked interesting too, so will return. Good value and delicious interesting food.

Turned up before 4:00 on Sunday to be told it's closed when they advertise open till 5:00 everyday. Missed a lovely afternoon tea but went elsewhere.

Returned anticipating how I remember it to have been a couple of years ago, but found it a bit 'tired' looking ... the lily ponds looked worn out and the bar/register area looked tight, congested and just didn't have the appeal it used to have. Was ready to buy a coffee but ended up walking away as I didn't like... More

What a great little place. Food was amazing. Highly recommended the Potato Rosti, much more than I expected in the way of flavor and presentation. Very fresh ingredients. Coffee was awesome too. Friendly staff and very welcoming.

How good is Lily'd Pad? It's great. It's not pretentious. It's warm and inviting and the food is lovely. My coffee was perfect and the wait staff wonderful. I can't wait to come back again

Beautiful tiny café. Breakfast & coffee were yum! You must try the mixed mushroom on focaccia bread.

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!
