I work in Covington, and am very familiar with all the local restaurants. Lola is absolutely one of my favorites. The food is local and fresh. They have the best salads and daily lunch specials around. It is run and owned by lovely 2 chefs who are married. The couple also run a food truck in the area that offers absolutely delicious fare at various outdoor concerts and venues alike. Any of their desserts are divine. For dessert after lunch, the hummingbird cake is a must. The restaurant is located in an old train depot across from the courthouse. Therefore, it's very quaint. The prices are very reasonable. It is not full service for lunch, as they have a counter where you order lunch, pay, and get your own utensils and drink. Dinner on the weekends is completely different, as it's full service and white tablecloths. We usually have dinner there on special occasions, and it can be very intimate and romantic there for dinner. I absolutely love this restaurant, and everyone I have ever introduced it to loves it as well.
