I should be able to give 5 stars but I can't. The decor is lovely, the food is interesting and tasty. The service is slow - 2 hours for lunch with entres and dessert, no drinks or appetizer. How many people can take of 2 hours plus travel time for lunch. $64 (with tip) for LUNCH entre and dessert for two people. No, the food is not THAT good. That is why I have to give this only 3 stars.

Oh the other stinger - I wanted a little bit of dessert, so i ordered cake - cost $7.50. I Ate a few bites off the skinny end - at least 2/3 of the cake was left . I asked to take the rest home. Well they chopped off at least half of the remaing cake so they could stuff it in one of those hamburger size styrofoam boxes. Couldn't they have used a larger box to give me the entire leftover?

My husband and I spent our twenty-second anniversary at the Artist's Inn, in Terre Hill. Bruce and Jan (Owners/Inn-keepers/Family) suggested we celebrate at Lily's American Cafe. It was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was romantic and the food was fantastic. We will make the Artist's Inn and Lily's our annual routine.
