Best crossiants ever

My husband and I had breakfast here. Prices are very good, and the food is incredible. We stayed for extra juice, their fresh juices were delicious. Great atmosphere, friendly, quick service and the waitress gave us good tips for exploring the local area.

We pop in the CBD periodically for a night of adult time and we always find ourselves having breakfast at Lola's. Food is Amazing, Staff are Great and we just can't get enough of the place. Highly recommend them.

Breakfast menu is brilliant, lots of options and all fresh. Cool little cafe on long street, can see into the kitchen and tables inside and out. Fresh smoothies and juices available. Evening dinner menu also available. Definitely visit!

A very nice place on Long Street for breakfast, lunch and some nights diner. Good food but the best part of the place is the nice staff that helps with any questions and give good recommendations about what to have. The fact that they have a good WIFI is an added benefit

Compared to other places, the service... More

We have to applaud Lola's for maintaining a consistent quality of delicious food. We have visited 5 times over the past several years and have never been disappointed. The Salad Nicoise is my favorite but my husband always selects one of their Asian offerings and they are always a treat. We showed up at noon ready for lunch but the... More

My wife and a friend at here while on vacation in Cape Town. We had a great breakfast. We all tried different things and were equally impressed with what we ordered. We also had a solid internet connection which was just what we needed as we planned our day while waiting for our food to arrive. The prices are average... More
