Malibu is fortunate to have Lily’s Café, a little gem in Point Dume Plaza where Lily Castro can be found serving excellent Mexican and American food.

In many ways, Lily’s Café exemplifies the American dream. Originally from El Salvador, Lily Castro was only 18 years old when she opened the café’s doors. She has raised her daughter in Malibu, developed a loyal following of customers and well-wishers, and has succeeded in developing an innovative menu where a hard-earned buck goes a very long way.
