Sadly, Lily's Cafe is no longer open except as an occasional special event venue. However, there are some new alternatives since some of these reviewers have been to Deer Isle. "Aragosta" on Main St in Stonington has what foodies are looking for. Go for lunch...More

Lily's weekly lunch is incredible. So great to again have the opportunity to eat Kyra's amazing cooking, and love the new approach of a fixed price/menu for lunch once a week. We loved it!

Lily's Café has been renamed Lily's House, and Thursday lunches are offered there in the summer of 2013 by owner-Chef Kyra Alex, but the wonderful Lily's Café is no more. A sad loss to Deer Isle. I should add that Trip Advisor requires me to...More

Some of the best sandwiches you will get anywhere, made with the freshest ingredients. Lovely and friendly staff, incredible wines and tasty beer, and a number of gourmet foodstuffs for purchase. I look forward to going every year. Unfortunately they are closed for Summer 2012.

Perhaps they are suffering from end of season syndrome, but the service and freindliness was really bad. Am sure they would have preferred that we just left money on the counter and walked out. The menu seems like it should be decent, fair choice of...More

I love Lily's. I can't say enough about it. The food was delicious and so fresh that it tasted like it just came from the farm. I had the chicken dish that tasted like my own ( in a good way.) My husband who is...More

Very good food, creative dishes, and very sinful desserts. Service is good but they are always busy and NOT open on weekends. Good selection of gourmet foods, coffees, and a reasonably priced wine bar with a good selection. For a lunch or even a snack,...More
