Our first visit to Covington; and I take it that this town is not too friendly to outsiders. I didn't see a single smile anywhere, including the staff at this restaurant.

Located in an old train depot. Loud at lunch but not deafening. We had the lunch combos I had muffalatta and tomato basil soup. Both were excellent especially the soup. Wife had feta salad. Very reasonably priced. We'll be back.

no regular menu. but you will be surprised how good the food is. the soups are creative and the sandwiches are hugh, made on fresh baked bread. a lot of couthouse people eat here. judges, lawyers, secretaries. no reservations. limited seating made out of an old rail car. definitely a winner.

We went early on a Friday night because we had heard stories of long waits for food. Shared an excellent Sancerre ($45) that complimented our meal. We started with a create appetizer of grilled octopus set over white bean purée with roasted cherry tomatoes and peanuts. The octopus was very tender and had a nice char on the outside. The... More

I LOVE getting take out from this place for lunch. The sandwiches are great with delicious bread and a variety of options. I love the Bostonian and the Farmer. The salads are good too as are the soups and the 'specials' like the Thursday meat special (the one I had was meatloaf). The dinner was over priced with small portions... More

My first time there, but my friend (who I hadn't see in years) eats there enough they know her recommended it. We had a wonderful and tasty lunch of soup and salad. My shrimp and corn chowder was awesome and my salad perfect. Staff was extremely friendly and I felt the cost reasonable. Never been to that part of Covington... More

Quaint spot at the old Covington train depot. Small but well run. They have great craft cocktails. Lunch is order yourself at the counter. Dinner is traditional dining with full table service. Their food truck is equally as good. The truffle oil fries are sinfully good.

There's Lola by day and Lola by night. Try both. At lunch, order at the counter for a delicious filling daily special or indulge in a tasty sandwich with a cup of soup. Lola is nearly always busy on workdays and there is a good reason for this. On weekend evenings the place transforms to a lovely place to have... More
