“A little gem in Dundee”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I have a short list of great coffee shops in Dundee and Lily and Stone is my favourite of these. Apart from a damn good coffee and a selection of great home baked goods, the food is very good too, all very fresh, tasty and well presented.
The staff are very friendly and although the place gets busy at times, they will reserve a table for you.
There are also the popular special themed nights, such as Tapas, Greek etc... where you can get a varied selection and all at a very reasonable price.

“Unexpected little find”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Happened upon this place by accident - got a car parking space outside and just liked the look of it. We were intending to go for a coffee but ended up having lunch after seeing the food coming out of the kitchen....
Great little place and well worth a visit

“Below average! I went here because of all the other reviews.”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Sadly I was very disappointed, the soup tasted like water! My friend and I left two full bowls, the baguette I had was very dry! I can't believe all the amazing reviews. Maybe they just had a bad day, I will not be back!

“Best coffee in tayside”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This lovely little cafe makes a great change from the big chains. Happy hour between 10.30-11.30 where you get hot drinks for £1 makes for stunning value, quality not compromised as coffee delicious and the fruit scone I had would have made Paul Hollywood proud !

“Lovely Lunch”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

A little cafe that looks completely under-whelming from the outside, this little place is a wonderful place for lunch. The salads are fresh and full of flavour, the mains are of a huge variety and alway taste delicious. The huge variety of teas go along perfectly with all the delicious deserts. Great taste and lovely atmosphere, you can't help but want to come back here.
