Although this little shop is in the older part of New Ulm, when you walk inside, it has fantastic atmosphere. Great coffee, made however you want it, quaint décor, friendly staff, and excellent tarts!

This was a surprising find for such a small town. All in our group enjoyed the meal. Nice atmosphere.

Whenever I'm in town I always stop at Lola's for a great cup of coffee. When the weather allows I love to enjoy my coffee on their deck.

My meatless pasta primavera with rigatoni and a red sauce was wonderful. My partners spaghetti dish was great. The crab spread appetizer was tasty and the house merlot was very nice. Delightful wait staff.

I recommend the salad with salmon. The salmon portion is very generous and the greens were very fresh. Great atmosphere and delicious food.

We had the chicken pot pie and was excellent. Other couples from the B&B had different dishes but all of them said they were very good.

Five family members all got what they wanted and it was all delicious. We had the "Hot Mess" as an appetizer; it is not to be missed.

Loved the Southwest Cobb salad with chicken, then couldn't stop eating the kettle chips from my husband's roast beef Po Boy. Kids picked a table and once you order, you sit with a number on your table until they bring your food out to you....More

Known for it's locally roasted coffee and espresso drinks, fresh scones, pastries, pastas, baguette sandwiches, pot pies, soups, salads, and funky atmosphere. During the Summer and Fall enjoy lunch or dinner on the outdoor patio, stop by for an Schells Beer or glass of Morgan Creek Wine, and some Bruschetta. Great food in an completely restored old town building, large open ceilings, exposed brick walls, lots of great character!
