Lilla Cafe closed?

Sadly, we haven't been there in a while, even living up the block. A couple of weeks ago, it was papered up with a note that they were renovating and coming back soon with a new and exciting setup. Their Facebook page said the same thing. Since then, the interior seems to have been redesigned with a bar up front and only a few cafe tables, but all the Lilla signage came down and no new notes. Their website and Facebook pages also seem to have come down. Does anyone have any news?

      Re-opened as Brooklyn Southern. So far, the southern fare is more reasonably priced and delicious.

        Thanks for the update. What did you try there?

          We had the pimento cheese wedge, biscuits and preserves, sausage gravy, and boiled shrimp. We plan on trying a lot more soon, especially the fried chicken.

          I really liked Lilla and thought it was reasonably priced already. How much lower is the pricing?

            I don't think there were any entrees more than 11 or 12.
