Not too long ago I went to have breakfast at a cool, little restaurant called Lola's and the whole experience was really good. Here are some thoughts:
The place.... It's decorated with simple, yet modern, decor and the vibe is very relaxed. There is also local art on the walls which you can purchase if you like.
The service... Our waitress was very friendly and didn't seem to care how long we took to order ( I was having a very indecisive day, so I really appreciated not feeling rushed). Once we had ordered we didn't have to wait too long for our meal to arrive.
Left: corn fritters with bacon and cream cheese. Right: My cute cup of coffee
The food... I decided to have the corn fritters and a cappuccino. Both were totally delicious. In fact, the food was so yum, that I even ordered lunch from them to take away (a free range lamb pie - which totally rocked).
If you have not been there, you should try it out (they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner most days). I will definitely be going back there again soon.
