  • Lola's was amazing! Annalise was incredible to work with, very responsive and knowledgeable. Lola's took care of everything and made sure that it all went smoothly. The bar tenders were wonderful, our glasses were always full, and the food that Chef Ed prepared was amazing and everyone is still talking about it! Overall we are very grateful to them for making our day so special, it would not have been possible without them!

  • BOOK LOLA'S AND NEVER LOOK BACK ! When searching for the perfect caterer for our wedding at Brotherhood Winery we knew we would have a challenge ahead of us. After the first few meetings and tastings with other caterers we were losing hope until we contacted Lola's. Owner Eddie Kowalski and catering manager/wedding planner extraordinaire Annalise are the most professional, kind, amazing and talented people you can ever meet in your life. From the first meeting with them they made you feel comfortable and right at home. They didn't try to sell you on everything and talk up how amazing they were like other caterers we met with. They let their food & service the talking and WOW were we floored. Eddie's creativity and passion is completely evident in his dishes. The quality of ingredients and flavors in every dish we tried were unlike any other we ever ate in our lives. We booked them immediately after our tasting! From picking the appetizers, pasta dishes, main courses and down to decora... Read more

  • Lola's is incredible. We got married at The Hill in Hudson and they had catered several events at the venue before so were experts and made the process incredibly smooth for us. My husband and I decided we wanted a short engagement so called Lola's 3 months before the event and they worked with us to make a lot happen in a short period of time. Both Annalise and Eddie were incredibly responsive, willing to work with us, had hours of conversations with my mom, husband and I and were so lovely to talk to. They made the entire process leading up to the wedding stress free and were on top of EVERYTHING. Then, the night of the wedding they blew us away. The food was incredible, the service extraordinary, and our guests raved about everything. I really can't say enough good things about our experience with Lola's and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone hosting an event.

  • Working with Annalise at Lola's was a pleasure. She was so kind and accommodating. We emailed or spoke weekly, she helped arrange for all of our rentals and our menu. At our tasting, chef Ed Kowalski came to speak to us personally and was open and flexible in terms of changing things in our menu. The food was delicious!

  • I can not speak highly enough about Lola's Cafe & Gourmet Catering and our experience with them. From our first email to our wedding day Eddie and Annalise were friendly, attentive, and helpful which kept our planning fun and stress free. When we sat down with them both for our tasting we knew we were in great hands! They were excited about our ideas and Eddie came up with a creative and unique menu. We could tell right away their passion for great food and it came through in all of the dishes at our wedding. When my now husband and I first started planning we knew immediately we wanted a memorable venue with delicious food for our guests and Lola's did not disappoint. They even took care of rentals for us which was a huge help considering we were planning our New York wedding from Chicago. Communication was always easy and I felt like Annalise was always there for me when I had a question about something and always got back to me in a timely manner. Their entire staff the day of the w... Read more

  • My husband and I had always heard of Lola's Cafe through their reputation so when we were looking for a caterer, we knew we had to meet with them. All it took was one visit with Chef Eddie and we were convinced that Lola's was the caterer for our Wedding. Chef Eddie was professional, knowledgeable and efficient but still very friendly and open to listening to your suggestions. He created a custom menu that was perfect for our small fall wedding, using delicious and seasonal ingredients. We literally can not stop hearing raving reviews from our families about how great the food was. Our families agree that it was hands down the best meal they have ever eaten at a wedding, and my husband and I feel that it was the best meal we have ever eaten, period. The tasting was a great opportunity to get an idea of the look and taste, and service that will be provided at the wedding. All the staff was extremely efficient and provided excellent service. Annalise was especially helpful in answering... Read more

  • INCREDIBLE. Lola's was the best decision we ever made and hands down an easy one. Working with Ed and Annalise is like working with friends you have known for years. They stand behind their quality and uniqueness 100%. The food was absolutely delish and we got to choose every single detail easily with them. This was beyond excellent food and service, every dish was hand picked and mouth watering! This is not your average mediocre caterer that people are used to, this is a freaken work of art in your mouth culinary genius! SOO DELICIOUS! Annalise is a life saver and much more! You will never be disappointed by this choice, Infact ALL of our guests were ranting and raving about the food! Annalise made sure we ate the day of and made sure all our details were taken care of, from décor to making sure we knew when to walk down the aisle. Lola's Catering was an absolute pleasure and I highly recommend using them! Make sure you get the tuna wasabi waffle cones because you will be addicted!

  • Lola's cafe was so good to us! They were by far the most affordable option that we considered and honestly was why we leaned towards them and after we tried the food there was no question that they were the caterers for us. The food was STELLAR! I got so many compliments throughout the wedding and onward on how good the food was. They even created a vegan dish at my request that everyone loved! They were able to work seamlessly with our outdoor venue. Annalise and Ed make the process very easy to understand and were always available to troubleshoot, brainstorm and offer their very experienced opinions. I'm very grateful to them for making the day so enjoyable. - Maria

  • I cannot say enough about how fabulous Lola's was for our wedding! First- the food: Months later we are still getting rave reviews from our guests! They loved the apps, the entrees, all of it! Second-- the bar: I was a littleness nervous about what to get, how much, etc. and Eddie had great advice as well as great suggestions! Third- Eddie and Annalise are the BEST! Throughout the whole process, I felt we were in great hands-- they were awesome when my mom and I got nervous or stressed-- and they executed on the day of perfectly! The only thing I would have done differently is hire Annalise as my whole wedding coordinator! She was a rockstar!!

  • We used Lola's for our wedding in July 2016 and could not have been happier. They were beyond helpful with creating our menu, attentive to our budget, used locally grown food where they could and the food was delicious! I have received so many compliments from our guests. Annalise who coordinated everything was sweet and had answers to every question I came up with, from tablecloths to timeline. I would recommend them to anyone!

  • Working with Eddie and Annalise was an absolute dream! The food speaks for itself -- visit Lola's or Crave, they are both excellent. Eddie knows how to take seasonal ingredients and let them shine; how to build a menu that is creative but still accessible. Beyond his CIA training, you can see that he just loves delicious food and is passionate and bold about seeking out different/new flavors -- without forgetting that sometimes simple is best. Both Eddie and Annalise also really know how to listen -- an incredibly important part of any client-vendor relationship's success. They didn't push us on any decisions, they asked us questions, they answered all our (gazillion) questions with kindness, patience, and enthusiasm. And Annalise is a total "front of house" pro. She was our main point of contact through all the planning; she never missed a beat. Service on the night of the wedding was perfect. She never forgot about us, made sure we were eating & drinking. Her staff were all ... Read more

  • Annalise! The person who made my wedding beautiful, effortless and SO much fun! Ed and his team put together a beautiful meal and amazing bar. Annalise was our catering assistant and she was on top of every project. Our local, seasonal food was interesting and delicious. They were so responsive to any requests we had for the months before and the day of. I would eat at Lola's or Crave a million time over after the amazing wedding they made possible.
