Cafe Lalo is a lovely little place, cute & pretty with a nice atmosphere. We visited twice for evening drinks - the first time it was really quiet, had a great table and a very nice margarita! Friendly staff. The second time was 2 days later and really, really busy. Much less enjoyable and very noisy! I guess it depends when you go - if it's quiet it's an absolute pleasure and a lovely experience - and would be a good date venue - when busy it's still good, but it's very different experience.

I love deserts! If I have to choose between a meal and desert I would go for desert. These deserts and pretty to look at but lack in texture and taste. We were a group of five and no one was impressed with what they picked. Cute locale but not the best deserts.

Went on 2nd May for morning coffee and cake, visited as a 'You've got mail' pilgrimage, but will return for the quality of the coffee and food, which were superb. The staff were very charming and deal with the movie fans with good humour. The baked apple cheesecake is to die for - the place has a lovely atmosphere and we would have happily spent the day there but needed to get to the airport for our flight home. Will definitely return on our next visit...

Loved the brunch and oh, the pastries! Making a decision is the hard part. We sampled several items and returned later in the day for lemon ice. Wonderful! Even if you're not a fan of You've Got Mail, check it out. You'll become a fan of Cafe Lalo

Located in quiet neighborhood, cafe Lalo is a nice little place. Everyone working here (at the time i visited them) were very friendly. They have huge varieties of delicious cakes. The atmosphere inside the cafe is very pleasant as well. Highly recommended!
