I came here on vacation to Australia. Such a cute little restaurant! In the three days that I stayed in Cairns, I came here more than once to have the DELICIOUS vegetarian lasagna!!!! I LOVED it! I had the main lasagna, it is such a huge portion for the price I paid, and then the next time I got it... More

7 of us rocked up for breakfast and we weren't disappointed. The coffee was great, the meals were HUGE (I suggest sharing if you don't eat a lot) - I had the breakfast burrito and it was delicious but I could only eat half of it. Everyone loved their meals, service was good and the atmosphere was great. We'll be... More

I ate at Lillipad twice during my four days in Cairns. I loved the "Pollo Burger" and the "Rainbow" juice. The availability of fresh delicious fruit is amazing in Cairns, so take advantage of the juices! Lillipad is a gem in Cairns but it is often crowded, so go after peak hours if possible.

Had a Basillico and my partner had the "godmother". Both were very tasty and well sized! Great place - wish we had found it earlier during our stay in Cairns.

My wife and I went three times in three days. I wish we would have found this restaurant earlier in our trip. I was not able to find a meal anywhere else in Cairns besides a buffet that would fill me up. They have a diverse breakfast and lunch menu and everything we tried tasted excellent and fresh. I highly... More

We had breakfast at Lillipad a couple of weeks ago during our time in Cairns. We had a dive to catch at 830 so we were there at opening, let our server know and she was great about getting everything to us quickly and efficiently, big ups to the kitchen staff for their fine and fast work. We had bennies... More

Went here for breakfast with my boyfriend. I had french toast with fresh fruit, he had the omelette with salmon. Both meals were huge in size and absolutely delicious. Café is highly frequented and food is prepared fresh, so prepare yourself for a little wait - which is totally worth it!
