Description: Lilydale’s local since 2013, the Lilydale General serves AXIL coffee and all day breakfast, brunch & lunch style menu. Our outdoor seating area is dog friendly and perfect for a sunny day. Plenty of parking and a great spot for a bite on your way to and from the Yarra Valley. Look out for our green and white stripes! We also offer evening functions, pick-up catering, phone orders & vouchers. - Glenn, Thomas & The Lilydale General Team

Very noisy inside with people talking loudly because of the echo effect, outside because of the traffic, mainly trucks. Over priced basic food. It is more of a 'Toorak snobs' style of place. Very little parking.

It's ok. The cafe is well set up but it's always very busy. The fold is a bit fancy. Prefer other cafes over this one

Went here with my Mum and Sister.
Breakfast menu available all day, good range of options.
I have been to others places that are more expensive and don't have the quality of food that The Lilydale General offer!
We all had food envy of eachothers meals and a large coffee is actually very large!
Got some vanilla slice for afternoon tea to take away.
Friendly staff and wasn't over crowded or too noisy.
