Not a fancy place but if a Homespun welcome and great food or what you were looking for this is the place.

Plainly very good food. Plainly?... yes, just because of the facility. It's not a new modern building, and some might even look down on its appearance. But the service and the food is very good. Prices are good and both the breakfast and lunch there was prepared fresh and hot, and both were very tasty. To be honest, given the... More

We moved into the area about a year ago and it was only recently that we actually tried this small café. We were so pleased that we keep coming back. The restaurant is quaint and small with a friendly atmosphere. You seat yourself and your food is served on disposable plates and you are given disposable silverware. But the food... More

I almost hate to write this review. Reason is, that when I wrote some reviews for some other places, they got to be so popular & crowded, I could no longer find a seat! That would be a shame at Lily's, as We come here as a family at least twice a month, especially after I have been travelling, to... More

I stop in here if I am in town for breakfast. All you need to know is this: Country Fried Steak. It comes with two eggs cooked your way, and it is covered in soul-soothing gravy goodness. They make pancakes that become one with the syrup and butter too. The coffee ain't bad either.

Have only gone once. Food was pretty good. I will say my bacon was way over cooked and the sausage is kabolsa sausage, those were my only complaints. Friendly staff.

We visit Lily's Cafe every time we go to Florida without fail - it's the friendliest little place you can imagine. It may not look much compared to the big lights of Orlando but it's a little gem hidden away. Lily and her staff and family look after you, will even make you things you remember from previous visits if... More

Doesn't look like much on the outside; like a converted house but let me tell everyone that the breakfast was delicious down-home cooking. Staff was friendly, service was very attentive, helping size was generous and the pricing very reasonable. I will eat there again on my next visit.

Friendly staff, good food. Clean bathrooms. Great omelets and other breakfast items. Only thing is I don't care for plastic ware and paper plates at a seat down diner.

Stopped yesterday around lunch and decided on the special, Hamburger Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans and a real biscuit. The hamburger was a fresh paddy and was well prepared, very tasty. The portion was more than adequate and the price was reasonable. The restaurant is very clean and the other patrons are friendly. Can't go wrong here. It's off the... More
