Nice cinnamon rolls

Good cinnamon rolls that had good frosting that was not too thick. Got it to go and ate it later on. Did not get a chance to warm it up, but it was still good.

We were tempted into Lilly Mae's for a quick breakfast. Two cinnamon rolls, three bagels and a coffee were $37. The bagels were okay, but came with the do-it-yourself cream cheese packets. The cinnamon rolls were not that good. Cannot recommend this place.

What more is there to say. Very expensive but you're right on Cannery Row so it is to be expected. Plus you cant take it outside and find a seat to eat it while you watch the beautiful Monterey Bay.

Rare for Monterey, Lilly Mae's had a range of gluten free options including cinnamon rolls, cookies and made to order sandwiches (including breakfast based fillings). Both rolls and sandwiches were delicious, and appreciated the option to have the cinnamon roll heated.

Been there todays morning. They offer some different cinnamon rolls, cakes etc.! Had a coffee and a apple maple cinnamon roll. It was so tasty and delicious, I really like my big warm apple maple cinnamon roll. It tastes fresh. Will come back again for other rolls :)

We planned on a light breakfast of baked goods from Lilly Mae's Bakery on Cannery Row in Monterey, CA as we left on our travels northward. We had seen the cinnamon rolls each time we passed by on the side walk. We had even gone there the day before but they had not opened yet for the day. The cinnamon... More

We tried the caramel cinnamon roll one day and after being impressed tried the honey the next day...unfortunately this one wasn't that good, you couldn't really taste the honey and it was a bit dry. So go for caramel!

We stopped by on a whim walking by because it smelled so good. Got a plain icing covered cinnamon roll and it was delicious!

After our fabulous dinner at The Fish Hopper, we stopped to grab cinnamon rolls for breakfast the next morning. They were awesome! And espresso was great as well.
