Great secret gem!

This little restaurant definitely surprised me. I wish I lived closer so I could go more often! Nothing fancy, just good, wholesome food that is made fresh, and soooo delicious. I totally recommend it. It's right below the Walkway Over the Hudson bridge, so I definitely recommend you check it... read more

Nice lunch place near the famous Walkway Over the Hudson. Not your ordinary sandwich and ingredients are fresh.

Stopped here on the way to FDR's. What a delight. Quaint little restaurant. Turkey and Brie was delicious. Would definitely go back again. My daughter had a noodle dish that was very good as well.

I have only had take out lunches from Lola's and I have to say the food is the best! Some may find it a little pricey, but you are paying for the quality of the food. All other eateries in the City of Poughkeepsie charge the same prices for lunch and the quality isn't there.

After eating Lola's food that was catered for a recent party, I stopped in for lunch and was able to grab an empty table once I placed my order. Most of the folks seemed to be ordering take out. Parking is very limited in the area, but well worth any slight inconvenience. Very close to the Walkway over the Hudson.... More

Great for take out! Lunches are always fresh and very tasty. Specials are always excellent. They have catered office lunches for as many as 35 people. Food is always perfectly prepared.

My daughter and I stopped in and were surprised on how good the food was. It is very unassuming from the outside but inside there's a whole lot of goodness going on! Such a great change from fast food. We were in and out fast! very friendly service and delicious food. You have to try the peanut noodles!

Small little place with a comfortable setting. Friendly staff, locally owned by a Culinary grad. Not gigantic portions, nice normal portion. I go with the specials; you can always get menu items anytime. I love the peanut noodles

Well, after having a delightful dinner at THE GROVE (thanks Tripadvisor Contributors), we found out that the owner also owns Lola next door. So we went to Lola's Catering for lunch the next day. Small cafe, Simple menu, Good food! Find out who is Lola?

Lola's is my favorite place to have lunch. It is hard to decide what is my favorite. Is it their black bean burger, southwest Cobb salad or their peanut noodles. I suggest trying them all!! Portions are large and there is always some left for tomorrow's lunch.
