Nice little place, reasonable price, warm and good service. They do a good... read more

Had a great club sandwich and a lovely mocha. Generous quality portions but reasonably priced. Friendly efficient service. Word of advice, if going for lunch get there early as soon gets very busy

Handy little café in the traditional style - lots of Yorkshire ingredients and all cooked fresh on site. I would also say there is a good selection for gluten free which I know can be tricky to find suitable and good tasting food.

Been a few times and the quality of food is always pretty good but the service can be patchy. Today the poor girl out front was on her own in a busy cafe, taking orders, serving from the kitchen, making barista coffees, brewing teas, clearing tables and settling bills with what seemed an appalling till and billing system. She didn't... More

First time visit. Unpretentious, spotless, nice warm atmosphere though I was coming in out of the rain to be fair. I had seen this place over the years and thought it looked a 'joe's cafe' but it isn't now if it ever was one. Very nicely cooked breakfast and good value also. Will come here again. May try the coffee... More

One of my favourite cafes in Harrogate. Excellent food and drinks. Highly recommend the fish pie, chicken curry, and the fresh orange juice. Sue the owner is a delight and makes Lillies what it is!
