About The Lilypad Cafe/Restaurant

The Lilypad has quickly become the place to be in Chesterfield. Owners Lain Woodhead and Emi Chapman were inspired to open the cafe while working in Melbourne, where they were introduced to a new culture and appreciation of food. They've since transported this new-found passion around the globe, back to their hometown of Chesterfield. The cafe opened in November 2015 and has been busy since day one. The menu comprises fresh, healthy and vibrant envy-inducing options, complemented by a varied selection of soft and alcoholic beverages. The wholesome dishes are also made using locally sourced produce. The Lilypad is open seven days a week for breakfast, brunch and lunch. It also opens privately for functions/events.
