As locals we have dined here several times and it's always abit hit and miss with service and quality. Although, a darn good salad filled with avocado is fabo. The service can be a little slow and at times unfriendly when it's really busy. But its OK for a local dine, particularly brunch.

Very close to our accommodation on The Esplanade at Mornington so good to have a short walk in the morning for breakfast or just a coffee without having to go the Main Street. Love all the knickknacks in green !

Dropped in on the spur of the moment ! Very close to their 4.00pm closing time - not a problem ! Tea, coffee and cakes were excellent. Most definately come back again for a lunch sometime soon.

Lovely brunch from small menu. Food was very tasty and the restaurant decorated in green Nic nacs and a large wall painting. Green is the theme. Pleasant staff.

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 !
