Massive dish of red beans, andouille and rice with a chunk of sourdough bread and a green salad for $10 is a great bargain. And very tasty, too.

Lola is one of just a handful of Northshore restaurants that are striving to consistently deliver original in-house chef inspired dishes that are a departure from what most consider 'Louisiana' cuisine, like the typical fried seafood dishes you'll find at most local restaurants, or the pastas soaked in cream-based sauces. Along with menu regulars, diners will be treated to daily... More

We rode the Trace past Abita Springs and back and were hungry and thirsty so we headed over to Lola Restaurant. The lunch menu consists of sandwiches and salads, they have a lunch special (pasta the day we... More

Great for a healthy lunch. Don't miss the Lola Salad and the Hummingbird Cake! You do have to stand in line to make your order but you are then served at your table.

So this place is in an old train depot and it's a cool, although smallish, place. The server was very attentive but the food was not great. The cheese board appetizer was quite good with a very nice variety - but the server did not even explain what all was on it so we played the guessing game. The Lousiana... More

After enjoying a nice stroll around beautiful historic Covington, we stopped for lunch at Lola, located in an old train depot. This is not a fancy place. You go up to the counter and place your order, pay for it, and it is then delivered to your table. The Lola Salad is a definite and all the sandwich options were... More

I love this place. I could eat just the bread and be satisfied but that is just the icing on the cake. I have NEVER been disappointed in this place. And that Hummingbird Desert. The LOLA salad! And whatever they call that club sandwich--my favorites!
