Tired of revisiting the same place for brunch? If so, in Lily, Arab News has unearthed a gem of a restaurant.
Located on Prince Turki Al-Awwal Road, Riyadh, opposite the King Saud University women’s campus, Lily offers a varied breakfast and brunch menu to suit most palates.
The restaurant’s décor is delicate and floral with tables set around a large olive tree and two walls made up entirely of windows overlooking a row of tall plants. Another wall is covered in faux grass and dotted with roses, and the high ceiling and sun streaming through the windows give the dining room an airy feel.
The olive tree is fake, but the real olives on offer are tender and juicy, making the fresh breakfast platter a great choice for simple morning fare. Hungrier customers might enjoy the breakfast burrito, packed with crispy potatoes, bacon, Monterey Jack cheese and bright bell peppers.
Lily staff are friendly and accommodating to food allergies. Of the items we ordered, the clear winner was the crunchy French toast.
Open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekends from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Lily’s might be the place to head on your next morning off.
