The food portions are huge and they dont sting you in price either. Jts one thing it's not a big place, that's not a problem just be quick to grab a seat or just hang around and wait to grab on when one pops up !! It's worth it. Also try the juices they are awesome and fresh...

I have dined at Lilypad many times and always enjoy their giant scrumptious salads! The menu is varied and unique and I would recommend their food to anyone. Only word of warning is they get very busy during lunch rush and often hard to get a table. But this is positive for them :-)

The meals at this place are huge, delicious, and the menu is incredibly varied - there's something there for everyone. I love the atmosphere of the cafe, particularly if you can get a seat outside during market days. The salad with the grilled salmon is lovely for lunch and I would recommend every one of the breakfasts I have tried here. Sometimes it is difficult not to get food-envy when you see other diners' meals come out! The only disappointment I have in this place is that it is so small. I often disregard visiting because I know that it will be almost impossible to get a park on the weekend. Overall, a great place. I would be more than pleased to take any visiting friends or family to Cairns to the Lilypad. It's like something you'd find in a groovy alleyway in Brunswick Street in Melbourne.

Going to Lilypad for Vegelette (vegetarian omelette) and freshly squeezed Lime Juice Tub is my treat to myself! Coffee is delicious, and portions are generous. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait, which I can understand is difficult for customers who have limited lunchtimes etc...but for me, the laid-back and friendly atmosphere reminds me of the Cairns I grew up in - and I enjoy chilling out, listening to their eclectic choice of music, and checking out the artwork adorning the walls.
