Informal cafe with outside seating. Wheelchair friendly access. Been here many times and always excellent food and great value for money. Unfortunately on the odd occasion because it's a small place when it's busy the service can take a little longer than expected but the wait is always worth it. Can recommend Full English and their Club Sandwich.

Came here today 26th november for breakfast which is fantastic as always. Served by a lovely young waitress who was very attentive. I have to say the older guy that works there was very rude to his staff members in full view of the customers as well. He really needs to sort out his attitude and treat people better. Maybe...

We arrived here at 1:00pm on a Saturday. The cafe was quite busy so I expected some delays...... We were promptly seated and given menus. We had requested 2 lattes and a few minutes to browse the menu. The lattes arrived about 10 minutes later. We both ordered the brocoli and cauliflower soup. The soft rolls and rock hard knobs...

Visited Lilly's, as was recommended by a local in Harrogate and it was excellent. Full English breakfast with pots of tea and coffee and all freshly cooked to order. Plenty of good quality toast and butter. The bill came to £20 for the 3 of us. My friend asked for no baked beans and was offered an extra egg instead.... More

This is a fantastic little place!. Good homemade food with large potions at reasonable prices. The owner was friendly coming out to let us know the starters were big enough to share so we didn't waste money. What more could you ask for?.

Lily's is conveniently placed close to the main shopping area. I've eaten there a few times because when it comes the food, particularly the salads, and baking is really worth it and very good value. It's not particularly well organised, and hard to work out from the boards what is actually available. Sadly, service is unfriendly and frequently slow. But... More

Lovely place and a must if you are visiting Harrogate. A bit pricey though but nice all the same. Meals are expensive but the coffees and snacks are mid priced

My wife and I were looking for a non generic place to eat for our first visit to harrogate and stumbled upon Lilly's. We ordered the home made burger, chips and salad. We weren't disappointed, the burger came nicely cooked in a soft bun with a very nice salad and well cooked chips. We had some of the lovely cakes... More
