Lola’s cafe

A little eatery opened by two friends aged 24 and 26 (WOW) in May this year, Lola’s cafe has become so popular they have implemented the same queue system as Grub.

Pretty spaces

We loved the decor, and the fact that the table legs are from Singer sewing machines, and more than one customer was observed peddling away, just for kicks.

Love is at the heart…

I really liked the feel of the cafe, from the cheery and energetic local staff (friends of the owners?) to the furnishings and elements of vintage decor. But most importantly, the food was good. And reasonably priced. A friend who went there separately felt so too!

The paprika-dusted and honey-drizzled wings were to die for. Cheesy fries good too.



Duck-leg confit
Cheese burger and fries
Seafood marinara



Apple pie
The BEST caramalised banana earl grey tart with pistachios in the WORLD I’d bet.

Unusual for such cafes, yet testament to their thoughtfulness, is the availability of high chairs. The cafe is small-ish, and the tables are not wide, but we were happy to get cosy.

Enjoying themselves to the max
Day beds are for lounging in – it may be huge but there’s no place like right squashed up to each other

All in all, we had a great dinner there, and a very pleasant first experience, where we did not need to queue at all because we were (ahem) very early, arriving before dinner orders started getting taken (6pm). My SIL says that their full breakfast set, which is available till tea-time is simply awesome, so I’m sure we’ll be back soon to try that!

    What is this magical Queue System that doesn’t actually involve queuing?! WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT THIS FOR EVERYTHING!

      Hilarious lah, you. It’s an iPad operated system where you register at the front door, i.e. take a number. What Ai means is that you can then go do your own stuff until they call your hp number (you can also see via the app how many more folk are to be seated before you (including their group size), and what the estimated waiting time is.
