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.

Fresh foods in a small cafe atmosphere. I have had lunch here several times and am never disappointed. Their salads are a favorite. Stroll the walkway over the Hudson then stop in to Lola's= perfect!!

After walking on the "Walkway Over the Hudson" and working up a good appetite, we stopped at Lola's for lunch. The food was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend eating there. I will return.

Went with my husband and it was a pleasant experience overall. The food was tasty, certainly creative. Portions were on the smaller side but that isn't a bad thing, and the prices were very reasonable. It was actually a great place for a dinner date because the atmosphere is charming and cozy. Tables are close together but you aren't hearing... More

Conveniently located directly adjacent to a stairway up to Walkway over the Hudson. Fresh tasty inexpensive food. I had a great burger here. Lots of innovative choices on the menu. Give this place a try for lunch.

I have heard about Lola's for a while, but finally stopped in. Now, I'm obsessed. The food is real food, homemade, fresh, simple, affordable and very tasty. The atmosphere is great and clean. It is my new go-to lunch spot.
