Great food, cute atmosphere. Must try the red bucket fries! It's open very, very late so Cafe Lalo is the perfect place to go after a night out.

We wanted dessert and this place was close to the Wilburn where we were staying. Not for baby boomers generation but more for Gen Der generation. Loud, close and overrated.

We had brunch and dessert, Irish Breakfast and pear pie. I don't like the brunch much, but the pie is amazing. It's a lovely and cute cafe with adorable decor and painting. The atmosphere was pretty good! I also love that it was featured in you've got mail.

My wife wanted to find this eating place , being a fan of " You've got mail" - I'm so glad we did! The first thing that hit you when you walk through the door, is just how many cakes they stock. It was lunchtime , but we decided to have a blowout! My wife had the Quiche, I had... More

Café’Lolo is a must visit charming little café’ on the Upper West Side always bustling with people. The classic French / European place is always packed but definitely worth waiting for a table. Food is delicious and Service prompt and attentive.

Brought the children here for milkshakes and tea. Very pretty cafe, nice service, good drinks (milkshakes expensive at $7 but I didn't think items elsewhere on the menu looked overpriced). Sadly no Tom Hanks. Cakes looked amazing!

We went here after seeing a Broadway show. It is small but such a great place to go for a late night meal, dessert or just for a drink.
