Enjoyed a wonderful business lunch at Cafe Lola. Friendly staff, quaint decor but most noteworthy is the delicious freshly prepared food. We were made aware of their nice wine by the glass selection and occasional music entertainment in the evening. Definitely will make this place to visit the next time in town for business or pleasure.

Wonderful atmosphere, the staff is very friendly and attentive. The food, this is what keeps us coming back. We have never been disappointed and almost always pick from the chef's specials. Perfect for a night out or a formal occasion. One of our favorites!

My husband took me here for my birthday dinner. As always, the food was excellent. I had the ravioli special and my husband had the sea bass (his favorite).
