The good news is that my mushrooms with bacon was great, with lashings of bacon. The counter food also was yummy. But the muffin cost too much, service was slow, and the coffee was tasteless.

I've been here a number of times and it never fails to deliver, whether it has just been for a coffee and snack or breakfast/brunch. In addition to a tasty array of cabinet food the menu also offers all the favourites - eggs bene, scrambled eggs and full breakfast. The coffee is great - I drink mine black so there... More

A breakfast bar - Cafe in Dinsdale, Lola shows what can be achieved by people who focus on excellence in suburban settings. The service is unequalled. Always accommodating, friendly and helpful. The various meals we have had there have all been beautifully cooked and presented, and the coffee is just great. We will happily call this our "local" while staying... More

Every visit I have had here has been perfect. A top menu to choose from but also amazing cabinet food. I have found it difficult to choose between the 2. Service here is always friendly and and prompt and you won't leave hungry. Coffee is also amazing here but they do offer a large selection of other cold beverages. Such... More

What a great little cafe. The coffee is really hot and strong. We had the toast and conserve and it was lovely. Plenty of butter and jam plus some fresh fruit to finish. Friendly staff and prompt service. If you're in the Dinsdale area of Hamilton I would recommend calling in and checking this cafe out.

On my out of Hamilton, I stopped mid-morning for coffee and a bite to eat. Lola was right on the money for value and service. I would recommend a stop if you are ever in Dinsdale!
