Lily's Coffee House is a Cambria classic, a place where locals and tourists gather to enjoy socializing over a great cup of coffee, breakfast or snack and where all are greeted by one of the greatest smiles on the West Coast, from hostess/owner Michelle and her crew. Michelle and Mike took ownership after the much beloved Virginia decided it was... More

We were told to eat here by friends who live in Cambria. The food is very good, fresh and great service. We ate near the water feature on the patio. Charming. I think outside is the best place to eat.

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.

Thank Lindsay A
