The most unique Milkshakes in town & Amazing Brunch
Tucked away in an industrial zone is a little haven like stepping back to grandmas, but the food is anything but old fashioned.

Modern twists on some old favourites include the amazing vanilla slices which people tell me they come here exclusively for, but also on the menu are bold and innovative new styles of food also.

Heralding its arrival, you will be greeted in a cheery manner by the green and white striped awning, white picket fence and faux garden features.

Lilydale General is a Bright, vibrant spot which boasts some of the most unique and delicious milk shakes including peanut butter, Turkish delight and fresh fruits, a full bar, cafe and great a la carte menu.

I tried an amazing salad filled with pulses, quinoa and perfectly grilled haloumi cheese. The French fries were beautifully presented with a lovely aoli sauce.

The cake cabinet is heaving with decadent delights, to wash down with a licensed bar, great teas and coffees. Looking for something more substantial, there is a full meals selection with so many choices I'm sure you'll find something lovely.

The only downside to the cafe is that they close at 4pm so no good for an after school cafe, which would be nice if they extended the hours a little.

Whether you come for a coffee with friends, a business meeting or just some time out, Lilydale General should provide a spot of un in the midst of an industrial area and I think it's a perfect pick me up, happy cafe for this area.
