The price is right

I always check out the specials when I'm in the area. The main menu is good, but some of the specials they come up with are delicious! Casual place to dine in or a quick stop for high quality on-the-go take out. Reasonable prices for the quality of the food.

This restaurant might look like much from the outside, but the food is great, portions well sized and at a pretty reasonably price. I had the Chicken Caprese Sandwich, one of the best sandwiches I've ever had, although it was a bit messy. My friend had the Chicken Pita. While we were eating, my friend asked, "we're gonna be back... More

I was not impressed by the sandwiches we ordered (my hamburger was dry and the bread was moisty) or the quality of the coffee... Staff is friendly but not particularly attentive or helpful.

Have had lunch here many times and always leave happy. From soup to chili to wraps and sandwiches. Always well prepared and fresh. Can get busy to eat in, but service is fast. Like it that you can order at the counter then you can grab a table, and your food comes out to you. People at the counter are... More

Hidden gem just steps off the walkway over the Hudson. Healthy fresh bowls and sandwiches and great friendly service. The Power Bowl and Southwest Bowl with Chicken were both delicious...who knew I liked farro! We got there just in time to grab a table, but a line quickly formed after we sat down.

Lola's serves interesting and creative food. On our second visit here, we found everything very tasty, and the staff are friendly. On this visit, we arrived for lunch on a busy day on the Walkway, and Lola's was crowded. Due to this, service was slow, and the atmosphere felt more hectic than usual. Still, it's a good choice in the... More

I can see why this tiny lunch spot has rave reviews: great food, healthy choices, interesting decor, friendly service, and only steps away from the Hudson Walkway entrance on the east side! So easy to fin -- you cana ctually see it from the bridge. My husband and I timed our visit to be on the later side so we... More

We stopped here for lunch and were very glad that we did. Try the peanut noodles as a side, it is a nice change from fries. The entire menu looked really good and made me sorry I didn't live closer.

Lola's has an excellent lunch menu and an updated decor. Right down the steps from the Walkway over the Hudson. CIA grad owner. Don't miss it while in Poughkeepsie NY.
