We went to Café Lilou for breakfast and we loved the place: the setting, the courtesy and professionalism of the waiting staff, and the food. We ordered cooked breakfast (omelettes, elaborates oriental-style dishes based on scrambled eggs, and quinoa pancakes) and all was excellent. Coffee and Capuccino were also good. So, I would recommend this place for a different breakfast... More

Something about Lilou that just makes you feel so comfortable with the place. To be honest i doubt this place really needs to be reviewed, they're so well known around Bahrain for their... More

One of the best coffeeshops/ restaurants in Bahrain, unfortunately it always busy with a very limited table, I would defiantly recommend it.
