Breakfast excellent. Highly recommend the Canadian breakfast. Service was quick which is useful if you want to get away to the sights quickly.

Lily's Pad is the local's secret - tucked away behind the Woollie's carpark. Put simply, they make amazing food - far above your standard cafe fare. Breakfast or lunch (and quite often both) are always delicious. Great coffee, friendly service and lovely setting. The gluten free options go far beyond the supermarket toast. There are usually so many choices that... More

This is a wonderful cafe! We were looking for a dog friendly venue and came across Lily's Pad. What an excellent find! Our dog was treated like royalty and given his own special bowl. Every single staff member we came into contact with were an absolute delight. The food was just so incredibly tasty as well. So fresh! Coffees looked... More

This place has fantastic food! If I lived here, it would be my local cafe for sure. It also has quite a good range of hot and cold beverage options including freshly squeezed juice/'mocktails'. I ordered the Bengali chai which was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.

This is a great little cafe hidden between a car park and the street. It has a laid back atmosphere, comfortable service and excellent lunch menu. The side salads were interesting, delicious and good value.

As you may see from my previous review, Lily's Pad has a lot going for it. Since my first visit, I have been back 3 times - twice for coffee, once with friends for lunch. Sadly, on two of those occasions, the cafe simply did not live up to my expectations. 1. When having lunch with friends, I ordered a... More

A great café for brunch - lots of tables and an attentive host who did his best to get us seated quickly. Smashed avocado anyone? ;-)

We finished a lovely weekend of hiking in the Blue Mountains with a delicious brekkie and scones in Lily's Pad. The staff were exceptionally accommodating of our group of 7 as we all had bags and they provided us with a spot to store them while we enjoyed a leisurely 2 hour breakfast followed by dessert :-) The owner was...
