Service was average. Especially when I asked to add something to a smoothie which would essentially make it a commonly known flavour and their response was why don't you get this then quite Rudely, even though it is displayed on their Had to wait quite a while for our takeaway brews but lucky they were good. The savoury muffins were... More

Very arty design inside, great food, though small portions. Amazing cakes and slices, pity you can't book, so therefore not great for a group.

Had lunch at lilos . Gorgeous space with sweet a sweet vintage feel. Seriously delicious food and coffee. If you visit don't plan on a quick visit food took quite a while to come out and staff seemed to be daydreaming rather than providing service. Regardless the food and setting is enough - think I'll become a regular !

An impromptu lunch in what first seems stepping back through time. The decor has a wonderful y'old touch, something to catch the eye at every nook. As for the food, just beautiful! Served my energetic staff with zest and an obvious feeling of pride. We will return very soon...

Good to have a well run cafe that is removed from hustle and bustle of Main Street. Quaint setting opposite Fishies beach, licensed and with a relaxed feel. Coffee is good without being exceptional. A quirky bookstore next door.

A very popular cafe just out of the Main Street which doesn't rely on passing foot traffic. There isn't parking issues here either

Situated opposite from Fisherman's beach and boat ramp at Mornington, Lilo's has a unique décor theme in that the highlight color is green and only green. All shades of green but showcased on fixtures fittings and décor pieces, such as pots, vases, lights, furniture pieces etc. which give it an eclectic and yet restful ambience. Unusual and effective. Breakfasts are... More
