This cafe has nice furniture and comfort chairs. Their food include pasteries and sime arabic and french recipes. The sweets are amazing. I recommend to visit it for brunch. The neighbors area full of good restaurants.

Lilou's cafe has great variety of desserts, both warm and cold with drinks that go along with them. They also serve main courses and starters, but I just went there for the desserts! Must not miss!

Where to start, the desert bar is nothing I had before, the flavours r stunning. The food is as great as the deserts. Loved the risotto

Great just to relax and watch expensive cars drive past. The coffee is good (not fantastic - just good) - you need it to compliment the wonderful looking desserts. Neither cheap or unreasonable. Worth dropping in.

Never disappoints. They have the best dessert from the salted caramel sundae to the German chocolate cake. Nice salads and soups. Love this place.

This is a cafe where most people visit for a dessert and coffee. The place is almost always full (specially on weekends) but there are plenty of tables so you should not wait for long to get one. The price is a bit but not too expensive. On average, you will pay about 5-7 BHD for a dessert and coffee.... More

Went for an early lunch with my wife and found the place packed with people having late breakfast. Staff was very friendly and went out of the way to arrange lunch even though it was still an hr early for kitchen. Food was excellent with bread fresh from oven, staff went extra mile to give me freedom to select/tweak menu... More
