Although this little shop is in the older part of New Ulm, when you walk inside, it has fantastic atmosphere. Great coffee, made however you want it, quaint décor, friendly staff, and excellent tarts!

Whenever I'm in town I always stop at Lola's for a great cup of coffee. When the weather allows I love to enjoy my coffee on their deck.

My meatless pasta primavera with rigatoni and a red sauce was wonderful. My partners spaghetti dish was great. The crab spread appetizer was tasty and the house merlot was very nice. Delightful wait staff.

I recommend the salad with salmon. The salmon portion is very generous and the greens were very fresh. Great atmosphere and delicious food.

We had the chicken pot pie and was excellent. Other couples from the B&B had different dishes but all of them said they were very good.

My husband and I stopped for dinner this past weekend based on a recommendation and we were not disappointed in the food. The chicken pot pie was really, really, good. We also split a flat bread pizza that was pretty good too. While the staff...More

We were camping in the area and wanted to go out to dinner somewhere nice. We went in to New Ulm (which was pretty sad and deserted) and stumbled upon this inviting looking restaurant. The decor is unique and cozy; it has kind of a...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!
