I have eaten here many times and usually it is delicious, but today the experience was awful. A friend and I met for lunch and waited for at least 10 minutes before anyone gave us menus (the cafe was about half full, many wait staff) we ordered drinks and food together, drinks came relatively quick. Again the coffee is usually... More

We had breakfast there at an early time on a nice day. You can sit outside or inside but it was pretty cool so we sat inside. There is not much choice on the menu but what we ate was nice. they had a special full breakfast or you could just have eggs if you like. The coffee was ok... More

Without a shadow of a doubt the best cafe in Mornington, best coffee, best muffins and the best egg and bacon. Friendly staff and service with a smile. If money was no object I would do breakfast here every day...

Waited quite a while for our lunch to arrive. Staff were obviously stressed with the lunchtime crowd. Our lunch arrived and after starting I realised it wasn't what I ordered but food was good and didn't want to wait any longer so I didn't say anything and continued The after a while I was asked by manager "didn't I realise...

Lilo for breakfast..so many cafes in Mornington but not better than lilo. They know how to cook poached eggs, no vinegar, they know how to do crispy bacon, the coffee is excellent, the ambience is great. I think it is rare to have bacon and eggs without that aftertaste that follows poor quality bacon...this is as good as it gets.

We were staying very close and this great little café turned out to be a fantastic place for a great breakfast, different from the run-of-the-mill breakfasts you can find everywhere. It's often very busy, as you would expect with very good food.

We like quirky coffee shops and Lilo fits the bill. The massive lady on the lilo mural gave the shop a warm feel and all the green vintage items on display are a real talking point (most of the items have been donated to the shop). The corn fritters were delish and a good sized meal, 3 fritters, bacon and... More

After an early morning flight from Sydney appetites are crying out for good food. Luckily we called into Lilo cafe on route to Sorrento. What a great choice! Friendly and efficient waitress who must have spotted two starved Sydneysiders with a penchant for good coffee from afar. You won't go wrong if you order the Lilo brekkie. Definitely deserves a...

What an interesting find - drive past on Sunday morning looking for a breakfast spot while holidaying in Mornington, and found it packed. Tried again the next morning, and it was still buzzing, but easier to get a table. For starters, great coffee, great breakfast. I had a delicious rendition of a bacon-egg English muffin with delicious relish. Service was... More
