Lil's is in an old Newberry building and you can still sit at the counter. The service, unfortunately, was a bit slow so plan on not rushing through your coffee or your meal. That said, it is well worth a stop for lunch or for...More

We stopped here for lunch upon the recommendation from an employee at Claiborne farm. Friendly staff, good food and served quickly. We were stuffed so didn’t get dessert, but they all looked so good. Enjoyed this small town eatery.

Good food reasonably priced. Cute atmosphere in a antique/vintage furniture/furnishings shop. Menu of sandwiches and quiche, a few soups. Great selection of desserts including multiple varieties of homemade pie. Friendly staff, but a bit slow. Nice stop but don’t go if you’re in a rush.

A typical small town diner that is becoming increasingly more hard to find in a world full of chain restaurants, simple sandwiches and great homemade pies. I wish I lived closer, I would make a point of stopping in from time to time. It's cool...More

Dropped in for lunch after the Claiborne Farm tour. What a treat. Asked our waitress for recommendations and ended up with the Tomato Pie (like a quiche, but oh my goodness!) and then Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert. Totally yummy and a great memory of...More
