Our supposed fine dining experience was ruined by clashing music on the sound system, kids plodding and pounding out Heart and Soul on an out-of-tune piano, and a tepid serving of primavera, only to be made worse by a second slightly less tepid replacement dish....More

Good food and love the building. I always get the Pork Bahn Mi. Have had the hot mess fries and the smoothies are always a good choice too!

A very popular restaurant. Went here on the recommendation of a local and was not disappointed. We had their Salmon salad and Chef's salad and they were both excellent and very fresh.

We've eaten here many times over the last few years and love the varied menu, the high quality of the food and the wonderful atmosphere. We're 45 minutes from New Ulm, but Lola Bistro is worth the trip.

We had lunch at Lola's and it was excellent! Based on the recommendation of prior reviewers, I had the Chicken Pot Pie and it was to die for! This is a very relaxed coffee house type place where you order at the counter and they...More

We were brought to New Ulm as guests of my younger brother and his wife and promised a dining experience we might not normally expect in rural Minnesota. But their choice of Lola's was perfect for our evening together. Accompanied by a locally bottled Fox...More

Known for it's locally roasted coffee and espresso drinks, fresh scones, pastries, pastas, baguette sandwiches, pot pies, soups, salads, and funky atmosphere. During the Summer and Fall enjoy lunch or dinner on the outdoor patio, stop by for an Schells Beer or glass of Morgan Creek Wine, and some Bruschetta. Great food in an completely restored old town building, large open ceilings, exposed brick walls, lots of great character!
