The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food comes out quickly and it's great. I believe this is a good place to meet a friend for lunch or have a lunch meeting.

We come to Maryland often for our daughters medical care. She has such a tough time but one thing she always looks forward to is coming to Lilit's Cafe. They have great selection, and good food for those of us who aren't gluten free.
