Stopped in for a hot chocolate. Found delicious pastries, hot chocolate (white, dark or milk!) and cappuccino. Loved the menu and the staff were friendly and knowledgable. I'd love to go back sometime.

Waterford is lucky to have a cafe like this. Lovely staff, unique setting, hot chocolate to die for. The weirdest and most fantastic vanilla slices imaginable.

I absolutely love Lilly's! From their strong Illy coffee to their amazing chocolate and cakes, it is defiantly the best place to grab a coffee or sit down for lunch. A Lilly O'Brien's mocha is unbeatable!

Great location to sit with coffee and muse opposite Cathedral. Indoor and outdoor locations weather permitting the pavement location is a wonderful place to watch Waterford and relax.
