I go regularly here for breakfast when in Cape Town and never had a complaint. Warm and friendly corner restaurant with great breakfasts and coffees. A cut above the surrounds. Points for food, service and atmosphere.
I can only recommend this little gem.

best breakfast in cape town. friendly service and great atmosphere.

reasonable prices and good coffee, what more could you ask for in a restaurant. The one night a week they are open has a menu that delivers well. Try the pear and gorgonzola salad and the paella.

I went for the Paella night last night and was not disappointed. The paella was a little different to what I'm used to but it was still fantastic. The restaurant is cosy with a great vibe and some nice music playing in the background. Our waitress was stunning. She was friendly and we got our food and drinks quickly.

Will be back.

A friend and I stopped into Lola's for lunch on a rainy day and liked it so well we stayed for hours.

The location is ideal, on a corner of busy Long Street. And even with the bad weather, there was plenty to see as the world walked past.

The food was gorgeous and tasted just as good. I had the poached pear & Gorgonzola salad as well as the butternut soup which was livened up with lime, ginger and chili.

The staff was very attentive and didn't mind us lingering.

A great spot!
