On walkabout in Cambria in search of coffee and something to eat when we ran across this little place. At first it seemed there were not many options for food but someone pointed out the little menu on the counter. I had the best breakfast burrito ever! We enjoyed sitting on the garden-like patio and talking with people too. Thank... More

Little lost gem. A waiter told us this was her favorite and she was correct. Great quick easy breakfast food. Staff friendly. Nice way to start the day.

The three of us stumbled upon this darling coffee shop. The beautiful outdoor sitting areas were great! The coffee was fantastic, especially on the cold summer day! The owner came out to meet us and he and his wife were super sweet!

Stopped here for a quick coffee as we headed out of town. Just what we needed. Coffee was tasty and strong! Lily's offered a variety of quick breakfast options as well. The patio outside is lovely. This place is surrounded by a couple of unique stores that are worth a stroll through as well.

We had a great time having coffee and breakfast in their nice little outdoor patio. The inside is very tiny, just enough room to order and get your coffee, tea or hot chocolate. They have quite a few tables outside with propane heaters if it gets too chilly. The service is great and the staff is very friendly. I had... More

What a nice way to start your day. Showed up at opening and I had an excellent espresso prepared by two pretty girls with a nice smile. The outside garden seating is beautiful

When on vacation it is hard to sometimes stomach the hotel coffee. That is where Lily's Coffee House comes in. I'm not a big coffee drinker but need a good cup every now and then. They roast their own beans...tasty and just what was needed for a tasty jolt.
