Lil’s is owned by Charles and Lyra Miller, who have owned Rosecrest Farm — just outside Paris on Winchester Road — since 2005. In 2011, seeing the need for a breakfast and coffee spot on Main Street in Paris, Lyra opened Lil’s Coffee House. Lil’s Coffee House is named for Lyra’s mother, restaurateur Lil Lalosh, and features family recipes and Lyra’s delicious dishes, for which she is widely known.
One of our specialties is old fashioned Southern Tomato Pie, served only when locally grown tomatoes that meet Lil’s standards are in season – which is usually from June until September. Our pies have been written up in Kentucky Monthly magazine, we’re known for unusual items including Scotch Eggs, homemade granola, Lil’s Peanut Butter Bourbon Bars, Lil’s Decadent Chocolate Cake and other special sweets recipes and we serve both a vegetarian and meat quiche and a homemade Soup of the Day every day that we’re open – which is Monday through Saturday from breakfast through 3:30 in the afternoon.
