A Good Cup of Coffee

Every time we go to Cambria we stop at Lily's Coffee House. It's part of a small collection of shops on Main Street, just west of Burton Drive, and past the large asphalt driveway that holds a row of shops and the Creekside Cafe. It's usually shady outside and there are lots of tasty baked goods... read more

I stopped in here with my boyfriend for coffee and a snack as our motel nearby didn't serve breakfast. Unfortunately, they don't actually offer much food (and it was mostly very sweet, not really breakfast material). Nevertheless, we ordered a cafe au lait and an Americano. Both were highly disappointing. They just didn't taste very good. I wonder if the... More

Nice place with Gluten free options (Which my wife really enjoyed). However, I made the mistake of going the steak route, probably not the best choice. Food was fresh and attached bakery was great (including gluten free cookies and cake for those in my party on gluten free diet).

Lily's has all the standard fare - plus a lot of extras such as the bakery products which should probably be illegal - just because they are that good. The staff was obviously happy to work there and everyone had a positive disposition. Food was excellent and the prices reasonable. The location is excellent in the fabulous hamlet of Cambria,...

The portions are large and home made. I had the seafood pot pie, it was delicious and more than I could eat.

My family and I stopped by this quaint, lovely coffee house run by Virginia. My boys loved her Italian Soda and Chocolate Chip Cookies while my wife and I enjoyed the tea selection and coffee. Everyone was so nice that my boys wanted to return as soon as possible.

Definitely the best coffee in Cambria. Very relaxing break from the chains. Nothing more I need to say.

This is a small coffee shop on the main street of Cambria but since it is on the side of another store, it may be easy to miss. The people running the place are extremely nice and personable. They have a nice sitting area...this is a great place to get a coffee and sit and talk. Unlike other coffee shops... More

The building itself looks like it was a old add stands beside a 18 hundred something bank. Both buildings have been repurposed. Lily's takes on a boutique atmosphere with tasteful decorations and interesting items you can't leave without. But you came to eat...how is the food. I had the most delicious omelet with cheese, bacon and mushrooms. Sounds ordinary but... More

Although my cappuccino was very good, there was no non-fat milk. My husband was able to have his usual soy latte though.
