Lilify Artisan Shop and Bright Coffee in Monterey


A short walk from Cannery Row (in the up-and-coming area on Lighthouse Avenue) this connected boutique/cafe is as far away from the tourist-wharf vibe as you can get. Lilify opened four years ago and is stocked with letterpress cards, soy candles, rustic ceramics, Milkhaus bags and a well-curated collection of jewelry.  The small outdoor nook is dog-friendly and the perfect place to indulge in a crumbly blueberry scone and a pour over/cold brew served up by one of the friendly Bright Coffee baristas.
On-the-scene: In the midst of construction across the street and whizzing traffic, it felt like an oasis to find this lovely spot.
