My husband and I had both the two poached eggs with bacon potato croquettes and sour dough toast (Lilo Brekkie). His eggs were well done. The whole meal was expensive and not worth the money! The coffee was delicious though.

One waitress in particular was very reassuring about my gluten free selection, even checking that I was a Coeliac (I am) and made sure my meal was gluten free. I will certainly be back. Great atmosphere away from... More

Mornington is blessed with a number of good cafes that serve excellent coffee and food. I find Lilo has the best staff, always friendly. So this is one of my favourites.

My breakfast was absolutely beautiful, although initially dissapointed with the menu as we had checked it online before going. Once we arrived the menu was different. A lot of the selections had been omitted from the online menu.. but did throughly enjoy my choice.

We had a wonderful lunch date a Lilo. The staff were all very helpful and the burgers were delicious. We loved finishing off our meals with scrumptious cakes and coffee. Thank you

Away from the hustle of the Main Street, friendly staff and consistently yummy victuals and coffee. Easy parking - even on the last day (a Wednesday) with a 25' caravan behind.
