I love a great pie. In Australia, there are some people who think they can bake pies and then there is Meldrums. They have the best ever pies, sausage rolls etc. Try it with mashed potatoes and gravy. I like their plain pie but their steak and kidney pies are great. While you are there try one of their delicious... More

My partner took me to Meldrum's after telling me numerous times how great their pies were. I ordered a plain pie with the lot (gravy, mash and peas) and was absolutely delightful. I urge everyone to visit at least once when coming to Cairns!

Had high hopes for this place - my friend and I came in to get some pies and coffee before heading to the Cairns Esplanade. I wanted to try the Spicy Moroccan Lamb pie, but unfortunately they were sold out :( (not the reason for the poor review). I decided to try the simple steak + mashed potatoes pie and... More

If you like the classic Aussie meat pies, this is the place for you. You will not be disappointed. The steak and veggie pie was delicious. +Fairly priced.

Old fashioned, good quality pies with a wide selection, both for vegetarians and for meat eaters. The prices are a little bit above what you pay your average pies but are well worth it (ultimately, "you get what you pay for'). You can have a sit-down meal or take-away. Highly recommended!

I now live in Cairns and was hanging out for a traditional steak and kidney pie. Saw that Meldrum's got a good rating here so decided to give them a go. I showed up at around 11:35 Monday morning hoping to grab a steak and kidney pie. Unfortunately all they had was steak mushroom and kidney which was close enough.... More

great pies and cakes and good atmosphere. Plenty of seats. Coffee is average but the cake pies and sandwiches more than makeup for the coffee.
