Dropped in for lunch after the Claiborne Farm tour. What a treat. Asked our waitress for recommendations and ended up with the Tomato Pie (like a quiche, but oh my goodness!) and then Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert. Totally yummy and a great memory of our drive through Kentucky.

Enjoyed the historic setting and the character. Staff was friendly and food was good. A gem in Historic downtown Paris Kentucky. Will be back on a return visit! Thanks

Make this your breakfast stop!! Take a few steps back in time and enjoy the food and atmosphere.

The coffee cake was amazing! So light and not too sweet!

Lil's Coffee House was recommended to us by a local auto mechanic who was fixing our car. We took his advice and headed down the street to Lil's. What a delightful coffee house! The food was absolutely delicious (we had quiche and butterscotch pie); and the coffee was topnotch. The servers were all extremely helpful and friendly and fun to talk with. The proprietor also chatted with us for a bit, and she was a charming and warm lady. We hope to visit her B&B one day. (In fact, the whole town of Paris was a delightful place—we couldn't have broken down in a nicer place!!)

One nice perk of eating here was the adjoining antique & curio store (they share the building space). My wife could not have been happier about that! (And I got to eat my pie in peace!!) :)

A unique place. Lil's is inside a long closed J J Newberry 5 & 10 cent store. My wife and I reminisced about such stores. We met in one where we both worked as teenagers. The menu is a typical lunch counter menu. I ordered soup and sandwich. My roast beef sandwich was pretty good while the soup lukewarm. The server microwaved it. My wife's club sandwich was excellent.
