Always better than I remember....

Every time we go to the white mountains we stop at Lala's. I don't even remember how we found it the first time but we love it. Pastries are amazing as well as the cookies to go!! We had breakfast and it's good .. I would like to come back again and try lunch or dinner. The price is right... read more

Hate to write this review... but ... my favorite Hungarian dishes were lessened by the apparent (and excessive) use of bouillon cube (or similar) stock. The food used to be cooked from scratch - without the use of such fabrications, and my hope is that the owners see this review and take it to heart and stop using short cuts.... More

Words cant explain the honesty of this place do yourself a favor and talk (yes actually have a conversation) with the owners. Your heart will be rewarded and thoughts of your grandparents will probably enter your mind. They make practically EVERYTHING by hand including the noodles in the delicious soups. Everything our group had was beyond good from the chicken... More

Is this what homemade really tastes like. Mouth watering carrots and chicken goulash oh my. It was quick but incredible rich in flavour. The service was excellent and the prices were low in comparison to other restaurants in the area. Great for a quick lunch when taking a break from the convention centre or even a great supper idea.

Great for breakfast! Pastries are fantastic! Soups are wonderful! Lunch and dinner entrees can be variable, but that doesn't stop me from coming back every time I'm in Manchester!

I stumbled upon this place in downtown Manchester and was so glad I did because it is such a great find. They have a Hungarian/Romanian menu with Goulash, Schnitzel and other old-world authentic entrees. I first had the meatball soup which I believe was made from scratch while I waited. Then, as an entree I had the chicken schnitzel. My... More

Authentic Hungarian food and pastry are here for your pleasure! Everything from cold cherry soup to Weiner Schnitzel to goulash, its all here. Snuggled downtown between a store and an alley, it takes some looking to find, but its worth the effort. Their cooking is excellent and their pastries are not only art to look at but an experience to... More

Had the stuffed cabbage and it was excellent. Every bite as good as the previous and a nice size lunch portion. Wish we lived here so I could try other dishes! The place is small, casual and the owner was very helpful and friendly.

I have visited many times...usually take out the authentic Hungarian dishes and pastries. My family is part Czech these foods treat my Mom to the foods of her childhood. The service is great- they are always happy to answer any questions.The poppy seed roll is wonderful just like Grandma used to make. Treat yourself to this wonderful hidden jewel!!
