My wife and I stopped for breakfast and we were not disappointed. The French Toast is amazing and the coffee is really good too. The atmosphere is really nice, and the service is really good. I would highly recommend it if you are in Bahrain!

Lilou cafe has a very delicious kake and its very good to order for parties such as birthday party or any other parties. I am always ordering chocolate pistachios and muse chocolate. This is a very good place and you can ordered by phone.

I tried many places to eat in Bahrain but finally you reach the conclusion that somewhere you know will better than somewhere you never know. They have main problem is the long waiting time to get table, some dishes are over priced and when they are under pressure their staff lose timber. I am sure they can manage to resolve... More

Good food and perfect ambience for a late lunch. I prefer the Seef branch as it is more lively and better suited for day time.
