Great Lunch salads!

The wonton salad was huge with lots of flavor. The ahi avocado salad was seasoned perfectly! We sat outside and enjoyed a pleasant sunny afternoon. The waitstaff was very attentive without over doing it.

My husband and I had breakfast here the other day. I had been told great things about the eggs benedict, which I was going to order, but then saw corned beef hash on the menu so in the heat of the moment, that is what I ordered. I can't say enough good things about it. It is probably the best... More

Illium Cafe, I LOVE your beautiful downtown location at the monument and the energy of your creative menu. But why oh why would you mar a perfectly fine serving of Eggs Benedict by frying the eggs in coconut oil? And I'm a hardcore lover of all things coconut...just not on my eggs. I appreciate that you use it because of... More

We were in Troy a few weeks ago because our son was looking at RPI. We wanted to get some lunch before heading out of town. We tried several other places which were closed before finding Illium.

When we want a special breakfast or lunch we always go to the Illium. Everything is always just the way we like it.

Came here for date night on a Friday evening after hearing rave reviews about this place but my fiancé and I were a little disappointed. When we walked through the door, it was a very cute and quaint atmosphere. There was no one seated in the front of the restaurant, yet for some reason they brought us into the back... More

I love experiencing different restaurants. Really interesting food options. But we did not really care for anything we ordered and the food was REALLY expensive. I won't go here again. :(
