We typically come here for dessert whenever we eat on this side of Bethesda. Lots of delicious flavors. The crab cakes look great, so we have to try them next time we come.

I've had several dishes and they have all been great! The coffee is always fresh and the soups are always hot. They offer a wide selection of beer and wine at excellent prices. They have social events which cater to local performers which is a nice added touch. The atmosphere is cute and trendy. They have some of the best... More

The owner has a family member that is gluten free, so there are so many options... frozen food and freshly cooked. Parking is in the back of the location, go in the first door away from the road...

We come to Maryland often for our daughters medical care. She has such a tough time but one thing she always looks forward to is coming to Lilit's Cafe. They have great selection, and good food for those of us who aren't gluten free.

I came here for an early lunch and it wasn't what I expected in a pleasant way. I came in wanting a simple sandwich with french fries and enjoyed it. I got the steak and cheese with a side of fries and was satisfied. They have plenty of desserts including gelato, cupcakes, and little snacks. It was very kid friendly... More

This place has a little bit of everything!! They have a little store connected to this place. You can also by beer and wine here. We both had the crab cakes which were delicious. I eat gluten free, egg and dairy free....they cater to your food needs. Such a cute place. Great staff! Very clean.

This is a hybrid space of store and cafe. We stopped by for breakfast on Sunday at 10, and it was empty. There are lots of GF options, but nothing is particularly delicious.

Loved their gluten free menu- it's massive!! Had the melted Brie baguette and later the chocolate mousse- sublime! Great for being gluten free. Love it

The restaurant has both regular and gluten free options - but they have a full gluten free menu, just just a handful of items. They also sell a wide range of gluten free products (packaged products, frozen food, beer) in the store, too. I always get the gluten free pizza - so I can't personally comment on the other options.... More

We've been to this little unassuming cafe many times in the last year especially with friends. It's a cozy place with a deli inside with a wonderful array of wines & beers including Gluten Free beers! They have many not just one so you can take your pick. They also have amazing GF cookies, pastries, cupcakes (get the chocolate ones!!)... More
