Overview of Lily's Pad Cafe & Takeaway

The cafe is superb. It is situated in the converted rear veranda of a beautifully renovated mountain home. Dining selection is simple and healthy. Great coffees and deserts. Staff are very friendly and cheerful.

There is nothing better on a winter's morning or afternoon to sit by the window in sunshine, sipping a latte. In summer the outside dining is perfect. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing. Perfect break from taking in the sights of the region or taking a break from shopping.

    We discovered this slightly hidden café as a fluke, part of our attempt to find the best café in Leura during our annual visits. Once we found it, after trying the other cafes along the Leura Mall, our search was over. Now we go every morning of our visit. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, and the food is excellent. The mixed mushrooms with a side of bacon is absolutely delicious, and the homemade bread is a treat. We have tried other items, which are good, but this is the winner.

    While I'm sure the courtyard is lovely ion a sunny day, for us it was raining, so ambience wasn't that great. Service was attentive, and food was OK - nothing fabulous, but nothing bad. Value was pretty good.

    The food is quite good and there are lots of healthy options, I imagine the atmosphere is nicer when its warm and not so crowded (we went on a weekend), the service was so so, but it was very busy.

    This is our must-do on all our trips to the Blue Mountains. The food is always fantastic and great value for money. The serivce is always friendly, professional and prompt. The outside area is beautiful on a sunny summer's day and also lovely when you're rugged up in winter. The breakfasts (which I think they serve all day), white hot chocolate and homemade lemonade with kaffir lime leaves are standouts.
    Definitely a must try!

    This local cafe has a great range of Gluten free foods, breakfast is no issue for coeliacs. You can even have pancakes, which taste delicious, unlike other GF products I've tried.

    Their coffee is excellent, service always friendly and the outdoor area is always lovely in the warmer weather. It's probably the best cafe in Leura.

    Arrived and remained seated outside for a few minutes only to realise no menu had been brought out to us. So we went into the cafe to obtain our own menus. After waiting approximately 15 minutes, we still were not served. The only waitress working the tables was oblivious to over half the customers sitting outside, only attending to and circling a small area of the cafe. In disgust, we left to go to another cafe in Leura. The menu only had a small selection of dishes to have for lunch and was overpriced.

    This has been a nice local café for a long time. Unfortunately, the service has become so uneven that we are no longer regulars. This morning (a quiet weekday, shortly after opening time) we tried again, there were only a couple of other customers, and we sat outside with two small children and waited. And waited. And waited. Though waitstaff walked past our table several times, we were completely ignored for the first 15 minutes before being offered menus. Another 15 minutes before orders for drinks and breakfast were eventually taken, and 30 minutes later the first coffee arrived at our table.

    Meanwhile, other customers who arrived after us were being served their drinks and breakfasts while we waited for the next of our drinks to arrive at 10 minute intervals. Another 30 minutes went by before our breakfasts began to arrive. After the meals had been completely finished, staff came out and placed sugar, salt and pepper on the table. No one ever even bothered to ask if we'd like more coffee.

    Just as well, the answer would have been no, as we didn't have another hour to sit around waiting for it to arrive. Sadly, we won't be going back to what used to be a favourite spot in town.

    As locals we've tried many cafe's in and around Leura, and Lily Pad is the one we keep coming back to with our guests. It's kiddie and doggie friendly, the food is always lovely and the staff are always happy and helpful.
