Is Miss Lily's Jamaican or Caribbean food?  Whichever it is, I found it good.  The first time I tried it was for brunch.  We had their pancakes and their special Jamaican breakfast.
Remember, I'm jaded by regular menus.  To me, this has something new and therefore excites me!

Of course I would like to try the coconut pancakes.  I'm so glad I did!  They're light and worth getting.  It also gives me an idea on what to do with my pancakes at home.  Eating out is a learning curve.  If you know how to cook, you'll get more ideas on what to prepare at home.  Eating out is an education all to its own!

Miss Lily's version of Huevos Rancheros.  It's a good presentation.

A must have:  a mug of cappuccino!

I opted for the Jaquitos.  Jaquitos are tacos with very fresh cut up lobsters and spicy pickled vegetables in a tiny bowl to put on top of the lobster tacos.  That was a good choice!  There were other jaquitos to choose from but I liked this best!

Another favorite was the bowl of mussels with jerk sauce served with garlic bread!  Mmmmm!
I had to ask for more of the garlic sliced bread to finish the spicy jerk sauce in my bowl.
What I regretted to order was the callaloo - special for the night.  The vegetable is over cooked - but probably the way it should be.  It was watery so I had to spice it up with some jerk sauce.
