We finally got to dine in again here at Lola Cafe! This one is honestly a favorite of ours and we are just so happy to be back and to share with you guys what we had with them. But let’s first take a pause on that, okay?
Lola Cafe has a number of branches already. If we are remembering it correctly, we have already brought you to their S Maison branch, right? And did you know that they now actually have two branches in Quezon City; particularly in Tomas Morato and Broadway! That’s right, QC people, you guys have no idea how lucky you are!
For this dining experience, we went to the root of it all — their Tomas Morato branch. This one is where Lola Cafe started. A family home turned to a full blown restaurant making diners feel comfortable and homey, not only because of their space, but also most definitely because of their food.
If you have not dine at Lola Cafe yet, then do know that their food are classic Filipino food, tweaked and elevated without of course losing touch to the original, so yeah, they sure are a hit to the Filipino palate.
