The indoor premises are quite small but the recent transformation of the courtyard with full time cover has greatly expanded the capacity of this cafe. The menu is quite simple, pies, salads and specials which are renewed regularly. All very wholesome and tasty. The young staff are friendly and efficient which makes for a relaxed experience every time we visit.

We were told about this place by the reception at the Fairmont Hotel as we were to late for breakfast - it was just what I needed. The only negative I have is that the toast/bread I had with the smashed avocado was pretty hard and did not do the dish justice. My GF's dish on the other hand was... More

Although I live locally, this was my first visit to Lily's Pad Cafe. I dropped in to sit and have a coffee while waiting for the Spring Festival to kick off in the main street. They serve Morgans coffee, which is a brand I prefer, so my visit was off to a good start. The seating is outdoors (but covered)... More

This place is tucked up the laneway and another business is at the front. Thankfully we saw a sign saying Lily's Pad otherwise we may have missed it. It was a quirky little place with good service. I had scrambled eggs on sourdough with a side of mushrooms and my fiance the Foccacia Egg and Bacon. Good experience !

Visited Lily's for lunch during the week without a booking. Although busy, we got a table easily and the friendly staff were so accommodating in every way, taking the phrase "service with a smile" to the next level. The menu offers many gluten-free options and great variety. I had the big breakfast which was huge and really well done while... More

Terrific open steak sandwich and the best berry smoothie in a long time. Will visit again and sample the all day breakfast.

Our wait person was delightful and friendly. Food too expensive for what it was. We were charged $4 a slice for sour dough bread!! We sat in the covered area and go. R honest it was a bit grubby-Lily pad tables were naff! Good for groups and yeah-fab coffee.

The food here is great. No problems there. What is the problem is the regularly haphazard service. Possibly due to there being too few waiting staff,or very disorganised. Not sure. Waited for twenty minutes this morning for coffees. No food, just coffees.They didn't arrive despite two requests from me, and vague assuring responses by staff. Thinking twenty minutes was a...
