We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at this unique restaurant. Seemed to be patronized by a lot of regular customers....always a good sign in our opinion. Found the coffee of the day to be especially good.

llium Cafe's coffee, fresh fruit, and their incredible red velvet pancakes would be enough for me to eat there every morning if I lived in Troy. It's a great place to start the day.

The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. We ordered the full and half portion of blackened scallops. The half came with less scallops thank waitress said because they are by weight. Street parking.

Service was terrific, great food and selection. parking is very hard. Atmosphere was nice. Would go there more often if parking was a little easier. I have also had lunch here a few times and enjoyed it very much.

Good, fresh and very tasty. A little on the higher priced side, but not too bad. Good service. A bit slow though for an hour lunch.

Thank Maria B
