“Gluten Free Food & Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Had a lovely brunch there today. They serve breakfast all day & we ordered the Big Breakfast which was HUGE!!! The staff are just so friendly & the food is really delicious. The main reason we ate there is that they have lots of Gluten Free options & are an associate member of Coeliac NSW. A very pleasant experience, I'll definitely be back.

“Generous servings, delicious food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

I visited Katoomba last week and ended up eating in Lily's Pad for lunch 3 days in a row. The food is delicious, they pile it up, so very satisfying and the service is friendly. Most importantly, they have a wide range of gluten-free choices on their menu. Highly recommend this cafe. Next time I'm in the Blue Mountains I will certainly return to Lily's Pad.

“Loved Lily Pad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Loved it here so much that my partner and I went back again! They make their own bread and put so much love into the food. The fresh juices really are fresh (unlike a lot of places....). Would go back in a heart beat. Lovely service, too.

“Nice location, cosy and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Dropped into Lily's Pad on a wet summers mountain Saturday for brunch. It wasn't too busy and we managed to find a great seat outside next to the heater. Even though it was raining it was still nice to have the option of either indoor or outdoor dining.
The service was great and even though it was a miserable day, weather wise the staff seemed pretty happy to be working away.
The coffee, which was supplied by Morgans of Emu Plains was brewed to perfection (can be sometimes hit and miss this coffee) and the menu options were plentiful but not too overwhelming. The all day menu was great and as was the specials on offer.

Would recommend and come back again, as it is away from the noise and bustle that Leura can sometimes generate.

“A GF oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

A great selection of gluten free and vegetarian choices which suited us perfectly, and all day breakfast available too. Gluten free pancakes for lunch? Yes please! Topped off by warm and friendly service. Highly recommended for a delicious lunch.
