Carlton Café, Takeaway, Catering and Meeting Room – Tigerlily Café

Tigerlily Cafe

Great coffee, breakfast, sandwiches, lunch, healthy takeaway or catering from the Cafe or ask about our private function room, in the heart of Carlton.

We have the biggest sandwich bar in Carlton. Create your own sumptuous sourdough (or gluten free) sandwich with a selection of fresh healthy fillings or treat yourself to a focaccia or Turkish pide.

Our breakfasts are a great start to the day. We offer a tantalising range of traditional and indulgent breakfasts all freshly prepared or cooked to order. Your options include free range eggs, organic fair-trade coffee, seasonal fruit salads, and home-made hollandaise.

Our daily hot food and salad menu comprises dishes that have proven popular over time, along with tempting weekly specials… just to keep things interesting.

We incorporate foods suitable for special dietary needs and preferences in all our menus. Our gluten free and vegetarian options are extensive and varied.

With our quality ingredients, ample portion sizes and our care and attention in preparation and presentation, all our food represents very good value in Carlton’s Lygon Street precinct.

Our customer surveys highlight our friendly service and the care we put into our food is what sets us apart in the area, providing good food quickly and with friendly and helpful service.

These same high standards are maintained in our function catering .


Most menu items are prepared in our own kitchen, fresh everyday.
