Everything was really really good. The Music, the food, the coffee, the service and the interior! A good mix of non-veg and vegetarian dishes...

Scrambled eggs on a croissant rules, especially with their pesto. Waitress mixed up with drinks, that is why 4 stars :))

Excellent ambiance, jazzy, good, fresh, healthy. Perfect for breakfast or lunch in a trendy area. Spend some times here, check out the people in the street. Enjoy!

Sunday morning in downtown Cape Town—and too early for most of the population to have recovered from Saturday night. I was so lucky to find Lola’s open. Top five best eggs Benedict I’ve ever had. Fresh juice. Great service. This place is a gem. I went back several times while in Cape Town.

The food is simply delicious. The menu displays a simplistically styled array of foods, which when presented, are artistic and well prepared. I've had a different meal each time, all equally as good in their own right. Bravo.

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.
