Lillipad is a favourite of mine. I visit whenever I am in Cairns to see family and friends. Amazing food, huge serves and a great price. Highlights are the breakfast burrito, the pancakes and the fresh juices. Definite value for money, but excellent food either way!

We eat here everytime we are in Cairns. A little cafe nestled next to a backpackers hostel open for breakfast and lunch only. They use the freshest ingredients, and HUGE servings. You will not go hungry. Fresh smoothies and juices complement the relaxed environment. It is usually hard to get a table, however I was surprised this time it was very quiet, but the food quality has not changed since we were here last. A must try!

Rude, rude, rude. Being a local I will let everyone I know how rude the staff are. I certainly will not step foot in this restaurant again.

The serves are large and very reasonably priced. Good coffee, excellent fresh juice, and a great atmosphere. Many vegetarian options, but don't feel like you have to cut the meat, there's still bacon, chorizo, salmon and more. It can be busy but I think it's worth waiting for a table.

Eggs Benedict and the breakfast burrito are both delicious.
