“Great stop for coffee and a pastry”
Review of Lil's Cafe

Lil's Cafe
Ranked #1 of 3 Coffee & Tea in Kittery

Stopped in for a coffee and a pastry. Everything was fresh and the café had indoor and outdoor seating. It was neat to see the safe deposit box covers at the counter and to learn that Lil's was originally a bank. The original vault is still there and interesting. The staff was friendly and a relaxing atmosphere.

This place is fabulous! My absolute favorite sways between their Ham & Gruyere Croissant for $3.85 or their Almond Croissant for $3.50.
They are both a meal in them selves. The crust is always flaky and just perfect!
Lil's has become famous for their crullers. I like them, but always lean towards the croissants. Worth the trip!

My partner and I got a dark roast to go, and man, it was delicious. The baked goods looked amazingly good but we didn't indulge :-( the sandwiches looked really yummy, too. Nice seating outside on the patio and a good amount of seating inside, too.

With the weather getting warmer it's nice to sit outside and enjoy a coffee and breakfast sandwich served until 11:00 am. There was a long line at 10:00 am but it moved quickly with 3 or 4 employees taking orders. My husband and I had bacon, egg and cheese on a biscuit sandwiches. The biscuits are moist and don't fall apart while you're eating it. They were very good. You have to try a Classic Cruller. It looks like a donut but is actually more like an eggy popover, not too sweet with a wonderful glaze. There is a good sandwich selection for lunch also.
