On a return visit to Cairns after a decade away I was delighted to find the Lilypad Cafe still where I had left it.
Do yourself a favour & sample an item off their menu that you may be unfamiliar with. But if you insist on the usual it’s there as well.
Just across from Rusty’s Market.

Love this little cafe. The portions are generous and food is great and tasty. The all day breakfast menu is a winner for me.

This place has so many great reviews it probably doesn’t need one more! Fantastic food and value. Best fine dining in cairns. Value plus. The poor staff were doing the best they could but it was hit and miss at times. That’s a very minor gripe.

My husband and I really enjoyed our breakfast here! They are known for their brekkie burrito which is absolutely what you should order. It can be prepared veggie or vegan with authentic salsa verde. Be warned, it is gigantic. We split one with an order of hashbrowns.

Try a fresh juice, as well. They had a few suggested combos on the menu but you could also design your own. The cake case was very tempting but we didn't try them.

Heads up for international travelers... Grab a menu and pick your table. Then order and pay at the counter. They will give you a table number and deliver your order.

We called into The Lillipad Café for the first time on Monday 14/11/22 for a early breakfast. A good meal selection from the menu planner, meals & drinks served & both meals served approx. 15 min's later. Delicious large portion size meals & friendly welcoming staff. Either dine in or outside dining or takeaway.
Meals & drinks are reasonably priced & parking opposite the Café.
