My husband and I had brunch for our anniversary here about a week ago. The entrees were exquisite and the service was exceptional. We plan to visit again within the near future.

Cafe Lily has been around forever. The food is very good as is the service. You will enjoy the experience and likely have leftovers. This is a great place for business dinners or a date because you can actually hear each other.
