Consistently good food. Not unlike its sister restaurant, Crave, there is always an interesting twist to a traditional fare. It makes eating fun.

Lola's food is always great. Fresh, creative. Not your run of the mill deli for lunch. Does get very busy, but be patient. You won't be disappointed.

We had walked over the Walkway into Poughkeepsie and were hungry. Fortunately, Lola's is right near there down the stairs from the walkway. It is a little place, vintage with beadboard and had repurposed lanterns as lights, and cool tables. The food though was the best we had for lunch. Fresh ingredients, tasty paninis. We certainly were fueled enough to... More

The food at Lola's is always amazing - fresh, creative, and delicious. It's a busy location with (unfortunately) limited parking, so get there early for lunch or call ahead in the morning for delivery. The B.L.A.T. on multi-grain with the black bean/corn salad on the side is my favorite (bacon, lettuce, avocado & tomato!)

Prior to walking on the Walkway over the Hudson, we were looking for a place for lunch and came upon Lola's. It was clean and the staff was welcoming, so we decided to give it a try. What a wonderful meal! I had the bruchetta panini and my husband had turkey club wrap. Both came with a choice of side.... More

Very eclectic menu with fresh ingredients. Its a popular spot with not a lot of seating to get there early or go at off hours.

Friendly people and a nice cozy place to eat. I enjoyed a nice quiet time with a friend after walking over the walkway over the bridge on the Hudson River The service was great and the intimacy of the place was just what we were looking for. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice place... More
