The food is very good! The blending of the flavors was very pleasant. The room is small and holds a number of tables that are meant for 2. It is first come first serve along with the tables. No alcohol here and parking is limited, but the food is worth it!

This is a wonderful place to meet friends for lunch. The menu is creative with lots of healthy delicious options. The people are friendly, service with a smile! Best to go early as it gets crowded after 12!

Wonderful place to eat. Diverse and interesting menu. Reasonably priced. Fast service though can be very crowded.

We often order in from Lola's for our working lunches. The power bowls are unique and excellent. Always a very good variety of salads and warm sandwiches. They are also convenient to the Walkway over the Hudson at the bottom of the stairs on the Poughkeepsie side.

One bite of the grilled vegetable sandwich my friend had made me determined to return. It is crowded at lunch for very good reason.

Visited for a midweek lunch. The staff was friendly and the food delicious. I had a sandwich and my friend had a salad. Portions were plentiful, prices were about right. There are a limited number of tables and it fills quickly. - great lunch spot.

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!)
