“Incredible bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Lou's is a real hot spot in Hanover. Delicious menu items , wonderful breakfasts, seasonal specialties. Always packed. Often have to wait for seating, but so worth it. The bakery offers incredibly rich and delicious cakes, pies, pastries, donuts and seasonal favorites. Have ordered many special occasion cakes and have never been disappointed.

“Hometown favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Love going here when the college students and alums are in town...but there's always a seat at Lou's, eventually. Both breakfast and lunch are great and they always have the favorite menu items. Love the Tortilla Soup, Crueller french toast and the Breakfast burrito. Its hard to leave hungry.

“Great breakfast/lunch place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Arrived in Hanover at 1:30 p.m. the other day, needed a meal before afternoon meetings, and had heard good things about Lou's. Opted for a late breakfast and had an omelette, which was large, hot, and very good. The accompaniments came just as ordered and were also very good. The service was friendly and responsive. Would certainly add my strong recommendation to the many others on TripAdvisor.
