The warm weather and soft breezes are finally here! We spent a lot of time indoors this winter so when the sun is out and the temperatures are north of 60, I am ready to dine outside. I recently dined at Lilly’s on the Canal in Lambertville. It’s a terrific spot smack dab in the center of town. The building is tucked behind the main street and resembles a French chateau. Of course, the first thing you notice when you walk inside is the glass display of scrumptious-looking cakes. Lilly’s also does catering and take-out. Cake aside, the best seats in the house are definitely in the back. Set alongside the canal, albeit covered with trees, the mood is serene and lovely - like a day in the French countryside without any of the jet lag.

Whether it’s near water, in a lush garden, or simply your own backyard, there’s nothing like spending time with others outside. Read our Summer issue for more ideas on where to plan events and meetings outside in the Garden State by visiting nj.meetingsmags.com.
