“Quick Stop in Treat Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

We stayed in the 6th last month and Lili's was a few minutes from our apartment. They serve a variety of American-style treats, like brownies, cakes, wonderful cookies and much more and everything we tried was excellent. Their coffee and espresso drinks were also excellent. A time or two, we wanted a light bite so we ordered soup or had one of the ready-made sandwiches. Again, all was delightful. Prices were reasonable, service was more than friendly and I miss Lili's as much as anything else we did in Paris. It can get crowded fast, but the line moves pretty well. If you're in the neighborhood, you shoudl definitely give it a try.

“American brownies and more sweet treats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

Hankering for a real American brownie or lemon/almond cake (with or without icing), carrot cake (with or without icing) chocolate pound cake, THICK, moist, mouth-watering slices? Here it is with coffee (at incredibly reasonable prices). Take away or "sur place."

Be warned, this is a tiny, sweet little bakery/cafe. 3 tall tables and one short window bar (about 11 chairs) only. It fills fast and lines often flow out the door. Leisurely sitting is like hitting the jackpot when it's busy. There are also pre-made sandwiches, fruit salads, fromage blanc if looking for something less sweet.

A definite, uniquely American sweet treat.

“Great Coffee and Cake!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Whenever I am close to Saint germain des pres I make a trip to lili’s Brownies!

It is a small place without many seats, but there is a take away option. The coffee is nice, a great selection of cakes and other delicious items, including fresh juices and sandwiches great value for money especially compared to other similar places in Paris.

It is always busy. The staff are friendly, helpful and very efficient ensuring a smooth fast service.

“Great for a break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

Nice little shop where you can have a good cofee and a delicious sweet bread: chioccolate and nuts, chioccolate and orange, orange and mandarin, cream and vanille. If you are lucky you can also find a place to seat. The weiters are not very kind, a little bit rough, but everythings is passed by the goodness of the sweets. Don't miss it

“Best Bread”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

I love going to Lili's. I stop there every morning on my way to school for a latte and a slice of banana bread or carrot cake. They have 12 loaves of sweet breads on display, all of which are so tasty!
