We waited out part of a thundershower here while waiting for the bridge to reopen for walkers. Very nice spot. The coffee was smooth and delicious, and they offer delicious desserts and some gluten-free brownies also. Worth stopping in if you are in the area.

Stopped here while on a college visit for lunch based on trip advisor reviews. It was a bit out of the way but well worth the extra travel. Delicious sandwiches and unique sides. I had the Chicken Bruchetta Panini and my daughter had the Turkey Brie Panini. Both we delicious. We chose the sides of peanut noodles and black bean/corn... More

My wife and I were in Poughkeepsie to check out the Walkway over the Hudson River. Coming back over the river and thinking about finding a spot to grab some lunch, we saw Lola's down on the street below as we were getting back. There was a convenient stairway down to the street level and we headed over to Lola's.... More

I moved to Poughkeepsie two years ago. I was introduced to Lola's when they catered a business luncheon I attended. Everything is fresh and delicious; my personal favorites are the Chicken Bruschetta Panini, the Short Rib Grilled Cheese and the Peanut Noodles. Brought my parents here for lunch- I was confident they would enjoy it, knowing whatever they decided, it... More

Four of us drove up from Princeton, NJ to walk the bridge over the Hudson River and then we went to Lola's Cafe. The food is absolutely delicious. The cafe is small but worth the visit. I had their chicken soup and a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and they used beef prepared as a Salisbury steak. This is superior to... More

We always wanted to walk over the Hudson River, so we went to Poughkeepsie for my husbands Birthday. It was some walk to the other side of the river. We were able to walk down to Washington Street from the bridge stair well and found Lola's. What a charming Cafe. The history of Lola's will melt your heart. The servers... More

We had read about Lola's whilst planning our walk over the Hudson. Lola's is very close to the stairs up to the Walkway. It was busy with locals coming in for lunch and deliveries going out. We chose salads which were both excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This company catered a wedding I was in. The maitre'd, Analeise was amazing. She catered to the bridal party's every need and was just so sweet. She is truly an asset to that company. The food from appetizers to entree were delicious. Portion sizes were a bit on the small side but very classy and presented beautifully. I look forward... More
