Port Jefferson area restaurants
Tiger Lily Cafe: 156 East Main Street, Port Jefferson
Tiger Lily is known by those who frequent Port Jefferson as a funky place to get a tasty healthy meal surrounded by great art and music. They are known for their wraps and salads, and specialize in alternative vegetarian cuisine as well as their Juice Bar. Their menu includes a whole host of items ranging from wraps, sandwiches, to energy shakes, espresso and java. While they specialize in vegetarian, they offer chicken and turkey dishes alongside the soy, tempeh and tofu dishes for those non-vegetarian customers.
For the vegetarian wrap and sandwich lover there are many choices. Two delicious examples include the Roma and the Chelsea Burger. The Roma is a wrap filled with fresh mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, mesclun greens and basil pesto mayo. The Chelsea Burger is a grilled veggie burger covered with melted blue cheese, sliced red onion, fresh black pepper, greens and house balsamic vinaigrette. For those who enjoy non-vegetarian fare, there are quite a few wraps and sandwiches to choose from. Many include chicken, but a few also offer ham, turkey or, in the case of the Creole “Crab Cake” Sandwich, “crab cake”. Several soups are available daily, though they also offer the soup of the day which changes and for the salad lover they have a variety of different salads to choose from. The Java bar has many choices with at least six different daily brews to decide between and do not forget during the hot summer the iced java menu of frappes, fresh squeezed juices, and fruit and soy smoothies. Tiger Lily is an exciting place to eat listening to great music.
