Try the falafel sandwich with hummus, tzaziki and salsa for 68 R. Lola's is situated in Long st; one of the main roads i Cape Town. Hip vibe with a little too loud music. Free WiFi. With cool arts.

Great food and ambiance. Had the best eggs Benedict by far. The plates looked very appealing made with obvious care.

Lola's is a small comfortable corner space, very welcoming and always offering some interesting menu options. Ingredients are fresh and the emphasis seems to be on good whole foods. Vegetarians are well catered for here. The only drawback is the coffee. Maybe healthy and coffee don't live well together:)

Lola's is a small and cosy cafe at Longstreet. I ordered fresh apple juice and today's special. The staff is really friendly. The food was nice and affordable.

Just stumbled upon Lolas walking down Long Street in Cape Town on our first day here. Excellent lunch choices, and great juices. Friendly staff and good music.

I discovered Lola's by accident during my first weekend in CT and I've never been happier. It's a cute little cafe with the nicest staff and lovely, chill ambiance. The food is cheap and absolutely delicious. My first day, I ordered a mushroom risotto to die for that cost me less than $8. Unbelievable. I come here frequently now to... More

For me this is one of the most consistent restaurant's in cape town, I can always refer friends and clients here and it always exceeds expectation. The food is delicious, loads of flavour. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable on each entree. The service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. You must try the mushroom risotto and the chocolate... More
