A nice dinner with fresh food.

We enjoyed a good dinner here, I had the rainbow trout and my husband had rib tips. They had a nice wine list, and you can't go wrong at 6 dollars a glass! We were too full to try the desserts. Everything tasted very fresh and the portions were just right.

We were just driving by and found this great little restaurant! The place is cozy and the food very good. The fried green tomatoes were great! The BBQ sauce was so good we asked about the brand but it's the Chef's recipe so we bought a bottle. It was a very nice unexpected lunch.

Always great food. Their desserts are out of this world. On Sunday's, they have a brunch. Did not get to stay for it this trip but it is amazing. The only issue if you would call it an issue was the person at the checkout counter when paying our bill. Our waitress was fine but we wanted to add some... More

We chose to eat here after we changed resturants due to lack of service at another local restaurant. GREAT choice. The service was amazing and food was even better. Best Pork chop I believe I have ever eaten. Give this place a try.

You can see the fresh garden while you're pulling in. My wife and I was wanting to try this restaurant after we heard rave reviews about the food. We had dinner and I'm glad we came here. The food was super fresh, pesto shrimp pasta was amazing! The fried green tomatoes was worth walking miles for. Nice atmosphere friendly service... More

Miss Lily's Cafe serves proper meals with veggies from their own garden behind the cafe. This is NOT a $5 burger meal deal kinda place. The Fried green tomatoes where perfectly prepared and served ontop of delicate garden greens that where lightly dressed with a tarragon ranch dressing. We paired the fried green tomatoes with the quesadilla, no entree, and... More

I ordered the brisket with mashed potatoes & my side item was sweet potato fries. My aunt decided on a burger, which... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Tremont and Glad we did! Picky 7 year old loved the grilled cheese, even pickier 10 year old ate all her cole slaw( though we asked for extra sauce) and chicken tenders.
