Lovely little place and the pies were absolutely delicious. The lady behind counter heard it was my boys birthday and brought out a cupcake with candle and sung happy birthday!

When visiting Cairns I always make time for a visit to Meldrum Pies. Steak and Kidney with Bacon topped with Mushy peas is hard to beat. Try one out when your in Cairns you wont be disappointed.

So many pies to choose from - you have to visit again & again. Some tasty unusual ones. Get there early as they sell out quickly - they are very popular award winning pies.

Our pies were good size, tasty, and the service was lovely. I was hoping for more of a crispy pastry and thats why its a 4 only for me.
