Very popular with locals as is "a place to be seen" but food is average and service worse. Many better places in Adliya

This is a cafe in block 338, Adliya. It's an amazing place and overly booked always. So whenever I have had anything is only packed. Yet to sit in the restaurant. The quality of the sandwiches is too great esp. the halloumi sandwich and the chicken tandoori sandwich.

I come to Cafe Lilou on a regular basis. Great coffee, nice atmosphere, and delicious food makes this my go-to breakfast spot. Only complaint would be it's popularity... get there early or expect a bit of a crowd. Highly recommend either the eggs Benedict or the French Toast.

This eatery is getting tired. My friend and I were first into the restaurant on a Saturday morning. We were first to order. We were the fourth table to be served our food. My dish was stone cold and had to be sent back to the kitchen. By the time it came back my friend had finished and I was... More

The coffee is expensive but beautifully served and of good quality and I like it this way. The cakes have not changed and in this case its a good thing . The menu looks the same and the food still looks good. The atmosphere is still alive with subversive glances and designer handbag eyeballing . The clientele are still uber... More

Excellent place, for coffee, cakes yummy...... Also breakfast, brunch, lunch & dinner. The only problem is sometimes we have to wait to get a table which says for itself how much people like it and frequent it. Its my favourite outlet for a late lunch or an early dinner or just coffee with cakes. Their timings are excellent and I... More
