These are the best Meat Pies I have ever tasted from a bakery. Fresh, perfect crust, flavorful, large selection including veggie. We did takeout and they were great with a pint of stout.

My husband had a lovely steak & bacon pie but I didn't think much of the corn beef and cauliflower pie, very little cauliflower and pie was only just warm. Coffee was only just warm also.

Save your money! I don't care about the awards or rave reviews they have received. The two chances I gave them were both horrible, they use aspic as a filler to save on meat filling. Disgusting!! Both pies ended up in the bin.

Just saying.... Best pies in Cairns. Lived in Cairns all my life and hands down the best pies ever. Its a must to have the pea's, mash and gravy.

Walked in after walking past their sign claiming to be the best pies in Queensland. Ordered a steak kidney and bacon pie the away for $6. It did not disappoint. Flake pastry. Juicy filling where you could actually taste and see the components. Added values was the bit of bacon on top of the pie top. Yum!

I decided to pop in to town for a few errands and I just happened to park near Meldrum's Pies. I felt a little hungry so I though why not try a pie. I was not disappointed, what a great Steak and vegetable pie and to top it off I had an apple pie for dessert. Really good food and... More
