Il Giardino di Lilli
'Il Giardino di Lilli is a tribute to my late grandmother, Liliana Carani, who continues to inspire me, especially my love and appreciation for good food & beautiful gardens.'Il Giardino di Lilli, meaning 'Lilli’s garden' is a beautiful Italian garden cafe and bakery located in the heart of La Jolla Village, home to some of San Diego’s most beautiful white-sand beaches, boutiques and galleries.
This beautiful space is inspired by the founder Stefania’s late grandmother, Lilliana Carani – whose kitchen and garden in Italy were home to some of Stefania’s fondest memories growing up. Based upon family recipes passed down generations, Lilli's pastries & desserts bring a little bit of Italy to San Diego.
