Lovely efficient service. The sweet corn fritters were delicious and the coffee was perfect. Without an overdone poached egg, this would have been a 5 star experience

Second time here at Lola's. The red berry smoothie is a great antidote to walking around in the Cape Town heat. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Firm city favourite.

We went for breakfast here a couple of times and had no regrets. Scrambled eggs and eggs Benedikt were simply great.

The service was very friendly and fast. Also the restaurant is located at the very heart of Capetown (Longstreet) which is very convenient for tourists who might want to catch any of the tourist buses or simply explore the city on foot.

We went to Lola's for breakfast on a Sunday morning having read some lovely reviews. I'm sorry to say that we had a horrible experience. We arrived approx 20 minutes after opening - the doors were open, but as we walked in, we were told by a gruff waitress to wait outside as they were not open yet. After finally taking our coffee orders, she walked around the cafe muttering and cursing, then made herself a coffee and sat down next to us having her coffee and a cigarette while we still waited for ours! When our food finally arrived, the coffee tasted burnt and the food was very average. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, as there are so many other options in Cape Town.

Having read some reviews and knowing this place was pretty local to where I was staying I decided to check it out. I had the breakfast of avo, sourdough refried beans. I asked to swap the egg out for a alternative. The sourdough was 1 tiny piece, the juice was ok and the overall portions quite small. Service was also ok but having been to several other places that were better I probably wouldn't bother stop in again unless to grab a quick coffee.
