5 stars for such a friendly and welcoming experience. Lily's is a small spot near Cartoon Network in downtown Burbank. The sign is hard to read, which is a shame, because it might divert people away from this cute little shop.

It's a very small place, and they only take cash, but it's got a charming feel and the garden-style decor conjures up a quaint, rustic vibe. I really enjoyed my experience here in large part because the woman who runs it was very friendly. From the moment I walked in this tiny spot, I was noticed and welcomed. The woman asked me about my day, asked if I worked in the area, and even asked if I wanted water after I had already settled down, drink-less. A simple gesture that I appreciated after I had forgotten to order a drink.

As an added bonus to the the food is pretty tasty. I got a smoked turkey sandwich on ciabatta and it was very tasty. Nothing too fancy, but everything was fresh and freshly prepared. I also found the tart mustard--maybe a Dijon or something--to accent the sandwich quite nicely.

Altogether, I'm very glad I came here. I think you will be, too, if you come here. Full Review

My family and I have been coming here for 10+ years. Lily's Cafe is right down our street so we've definitely taken advantage of it. I love that everything is made fresh (no packaged stuff), and her jello and home-made lemonade are to die for! If you're ever looking to eat a delicious, homey meal, Lily's Cafe is the place to go.

No parking, no credit or debit cards, but AMAZING and simple food. Lunch, dessert, and coffee were all delish! Definitely will go again!!
Went at 11:30 and there was plenty of seating, but by noon it was packed. Service is a bit slower when they're busy too, so probably not the place to go if you're in a hurry. Full Review
