From the first time I visited Lola’s Cafe, many things have changed. This cafe has grown into a widely popular place for brunch and they are full almost throughout the whole day. Their success factor must be the consistency in food and affordable prices. We returned again to try their expanded menu and we were once again impressed.
LOOK & FEEL
They have shifted their furniture around a bit to make more space for their constant flow of customers.
Though it might take up to an hour or more to get to their turns, customers aren’t wavered by the wait.
It is an unfortunate thing that we can no longer enjoy the slow-paced ambience in this “suburb” side of Singapore, but at least we still get to seek comfort in the food.
FOOD & DRINKS
Revisiting the Full Monty Breakfast, tastes seem to have improved and the salad was changed to green salad instead. The mix of scrambled eggs, juicy bacon and sausage on the crispy toast was really yummy. Though it didn’t look like much, it was actually quite filling.
The Breakfast Butter Croissant with eggs and bacon had a similar taste, but with the addition of a buttery crispy croissant.
The Avocado Egg Benedict was done to perfection – flowy egg yolks, crispy toast and tasty ham. For eggs lover, this is it.
I would believe that most people comes to Lola’s Cafe for this dish – Honey Paprika Crispy Wings! It tasted as good as it looked – crispy skin with juicy, tender flesh. The sweet honey sauce combined with the spicy powder were the bomb! This is one of my favourite fried chicken in Singapore now.
We had four people but just three mains and one side had us to our brim.
Still, we had to make room for the delectable desserts here. We were a little regretful about ordering the French Vanilla Creme Brulee as it would have been more suitable if we were half full. The milky layer was a little heavy and hence we had enough after just a few mouthfuls. The crispy caramel top was really nice though.
When the Honey Panna Cotta arrived at the table, we were slightly worried it would suffer the same fate as the Creme Brulee as it was also a milk based dessert. Fortunately, the crispy walnut crumble balanced the taste a little and the milky flavour was also more subtle. I personally prefer this to Creme Brulee.
After returning from Seoul, I have been craving for a good Affogato as I had a really delicious one back there. We ordered the Bailey Affogato and sad to say, the blend here was still a little off, as the acidic taste from the espresso shot overpowered the ice cream. The Bailey taste was hardly detectable too.
IN A NUTSHELL
If you are ready to wait, you should try the Lola’s Cafe delicious breakfast food and I am quite confident that you would be impressed. They are also opening a second outlet in the South area so hopefully the queue will ease out soon. If you are spoilt for choice, go for the honey wings and egg benedict!
