  • We couldn't be more impressed with how Lola's handled our wedding day - from the emails, phone conferences and meet ups all the way to the setup that day, the friendly staff and the absolutely delicious food! Annalise is spectacular and coordinates the whole show with grace. We highly recommend anyone looking for the above mentioned to book Lola's catering!

  • Where do I start! Annalise and her team were seriously what brought ALL our hard work together and made our wedding everything we could have imagined! We had a list of caterer’s we wanted to check out in the area. We stopped at Lola’s Café to taste their food, and canceled all the rest of our appointments because everyone was so friendly, and the food was delicious. My mom said she couldn’t count the number of people who came up to her at my wedding to tell her that they have never met a catering company with such friendly employees, and went out of their way to make sure every guest was happy. Annalise also went above and beyond putting the last details on our venue to make sure everything looked perfect. Chef Ed put together a menu that catered to what we wanted, as well as a brunch menu for the next morning. Seriously, multiple people still tell ask me what was in that yogurt. If they can get people excited about yogurt for 3 months, they can do anything!

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • We are so happy we had the opportunity to have Lola's cater our wedding. We reached out to 20-25 different catering companies and then ended up doing tastings with four different companies, Lola's being one of them. The quality of the food was the best, with one other company being a close second, and the other two being a further back third and fourth. Their style was top notch as well. Another selling point was Annalise who is their point person and Ed who is the chef/owner. You could tell these two people just 'got it'. They had great taste, were lovely to interact with, and total pros. They were responsive, creative, collaborative; they were everything you would want in a caterer. All of the preparation put our nerves at ease because we just knew they would excel on the big day - and boy did they. Our guests still haven't stopped talking about how delicious the food was! Even my mom who is a notorious foodie won't shut up about it! And the service was fantastic as well. We can't re... Read more
