I've never had a bad meal at Lola's. I've stopped there every time I've visited New Ulm. Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

“Lola's a coffee house haven”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Good internet access. Awesome coffee selections. Try the dirty chai! The staff is very friendly and there are lots of places to sit for larger groups.

“Top notch food!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I've been to Lola's a few times and I have yet to be even slightly disappointed.

Their food is amazing! You can tell everything is made fresh and with a lot of thought. Their salads and sandwiches are amazing. They have many unique dishes to chose from for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They also have amazing desserts and baked goods! I've had a few of the yummy muffins, cookies, and scones.

The atmosphere is awesome. Spacious inside with a coffee shop feel. They are also one of the very few places in New Ulm with a nice outdoor seating area.

My only complaint is I wish they were open a little later on week nights so my husband and I could come for supper.

“The perfect little coffeehouse”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Love the Larkspur. Grew up around the area and still go back pretty often. The staff is great and the food is too. Over the years, much has changed but the European charm is still there and the incredible food is still there.
Perfect little mother daughter getaway.
