Was looking for a place with glutten free options and this one seemed to be one. Some of the gf dishes were in my opinion quite unhealthy, and basically i could not eat anything in the menu. My family orederd some glutten free desserts and they were so insanely sweet and sugary. We had tea which was good, and the... More

Came here after a hike to Mt Solitary with friends and it was so busy during the Easter weekend. Food a service was great though and I had the pulled pork and salad with Turkish bread. Came again with my wife during a few days up at the Blue Mts and again, food and coffee was good. We shared a... More

Great food, better service. Coffee excellent, food on point and a really cool, open air space. Opt for the 'build your own breakfast option' and you won't be disappointed (although everything else on the menu looked and smelled great!).

We regularly come to Lily's Pad with our two dogs and completely reject Martin's review about dogs running wild in the outdoor area of this cafe. All we have observed over many years is the occasional well- behaved dog sitting quietly next to or under its owner's table. The ridiculous assertion about dog slobber and detritus is just that -...

I am writing this with dog slobber on my leg and in case you think I might generally type in such condition, can I assure you - I do not! Lilly's Pad has good food, good staff, good surroundings and a bizarre policy toward dogs - bring them in! don't worry that they might scratch their fleas and detritus on... More

I had brunch here this morning with my daughter. What a pleasant surprise, a cafe tucked away from the main street of Leura shopping mall. Picturesque courtyard and plenty of room. Heaters were on outside for the cooler weather. Table service was quick and attentive. Served with a smile. Prices between $10-$30 and good tasting coffee. Only one restroom (unisex).... More

Just off the Main Street of Leura, Lily's Pad is a beautiful little outdoor cafe (with heaters and plastic screens for cold weather). Fresh salads, home-made sandwiches, pies and burgers make up the bulk of the menu along with a wide variety of home-made cakes and slices. Their knowledge of gluten free was excellent including an understanding of cross-contamination issues.... More

Amazing breakfast, super welcoming, friendly staff and pet friendly (and by pet friendly I don't just mean sitting out in the cold & rain with your pets on a dodgy seat outside, I mean you can eat out of the rain with all other diner, in the heated undercover area!) you need to go here if you have dogs.. and...

Arriving early in the mountains for a business trip, my colleague and i decided to go out for an impromtu breakfast, after a recommendation from concierge we headed to Lilys Pad cafe, the service was prompt and friendly, the food delicious and reasonably priced and the bonus for me was meeting the owner and chatting. Highly recommend.

Thank harrisSydney
