Veggie Burgers~

Have been a regular for years. Always fresh and good food. Love the veggie burgers and their selection of wraps. Cafe has a very cool vibe and the girls behind the counter are very friendly!

I was hungry for something warm one day and accidently passed this quaint hippy type looking restaurant. The place was filled with woman. As many left with smiles on their faces more entered. Suddenly I realized I was the only guy on line at the take-out counter. I ordered a bowl of Turkey Chili sat down on a bar stool... More

This place was ok, but too loud and tight. They play jazz but blast it, you can't hear what you're friends are saying! Overpriced too, I got the soup and for $8, you would think you'd get more.

Unique food with a hippy vibe. All vegetarian and I particularly love the wraps there. The cafe is one room a little on the dark side which makes it nice to relax by yourself or with a few friends, not super kid friendly. I had my young kids with me and we sat outside which worked well. Only two small... More

Tiger Lily Cafe, up on the hill in port Jefferson is a little distance away from the main streets. That's one of the reasons I gave a four star rating--remember the real estate slogan---location, location, location. Although the lines are long, the food is excellent. Mouth watering chicken wraps, peanut butter and banana wraps, amazing veggie burger (I think it's... More

We found this great vegan and vegetarian spot through tripadvisor while visitng the area. We were not disappointed! I had the veggie burger and a fruit and veggie smoothie and it was all very fresh and delicious and hit the spot. Service was fast and very friendly. Special kudos go out to "Annie" who waited on us and later approached... More

Weird and eclectic experience! The place is cute, the food is ok, the drinks are strange - but the place has a cult following. Not for me, but maybe you will like it???

So many visitors to Port Jeff just stay along the one main drag a straight walk up from the ferry landing but it is worth crossing a block over to eat at Tiger Lily. This adorable little cafe serves up fresh, healthy & delicious salads and sandwiches. You have the option to dine indoors or out on their deck.

It was hard to choose what to eat because everything sounded delicious. My husband got a wrap, I got a sandwich and we shared some turkey chili. Loved the food and the whole vibe of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely return when I'm in the area.
