  • The food Lola's Cafe provided for our wedding was amazing! As soon as we meet with Annalise and Edward (and eat at the restaurant) we were confident in selecting them as our caterer. Annalise was wonderful to work with as she always responded to any questions very quickly. They also worked with us to create a custom country style menu. The food was fantastic! So many of our guests complimented us on how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The passed Hors d'oeuvres were great as well. We had the mini burgers with milk shake shoots and the waiter could hardly make it out the door before they were all gone! Lola's also did an amazing job of coordinating everything and putting out all of our decorations. We had a lot of small details which they made sure were in place. Since we had so many details I think it would have been helpful if we had hired a day of coordinator as well. But Lola's Cafe and Catering really made our wedding day special. I would highly recommend them t... Read more

  • I cannot say enough nice things about Lola's. Eddie and Annalise are one heck of a team. From our first meeting till our last they were helpful, kind, and very knowledgable.They took care of everything, including rentals, and I had no doubt the day was going to be amazing. During the wedding I even had guests coming up to me raving about the food and Lola's staff. Everything ran smoothly and Annalise helped by coordinating with other vendors and double checking that everything was perfect. During our cocktail hour she even brought us a special tray of appetizers so we could enjoy our food! Even though it's been over a month since the wedding I still have guests raving about the food. Thank you Eddie and Annalise for making our day perfect. You guys are truly the best!

  • Lola's did an amazing job catering our wedding! Our event coordinator, Annalise, handled everything perfectly from beginning to end (including handling all the rentals!). She was responsive to all of our questions, addressed any concerns that we had, and set up our event space beautifully. She worked with our DJ and photographer throughout the night to make sure everything went smoothly. During cocktail hour, she brought my husband and I a special tray of all the appetizers so that we were sure to get a little of everything. (We were so busy we let them pass it to our guests but I thought it was a very special touch.) We never had any concerns or worries about the food being excellent...every time we told someone from the area that we were using Lola's, the response was always positive. They did not disappoint us or our guests, the food was great! As our guests were leaving, we got SO MANY compliments on the food! We definitely made the right choice in choosing Lola's. Thank ...

  • From the moment we met Eddie and Annalise we knew they were the right caterers for us! Eddie was able to take our ideas of "casual food" that we enjoyed...tacos, sliders, crepes and pasta...and turn it into a classy and exciting meal that fit our venue. Everyone absolutely loved the food! It was different, delicious, and perfect. Not only was the food great...but the service was as well. I want to commend Annalise and her staff for their hard work. The weather wasn't cooperating the day of our wedding...but Annalise and her staff did whatever they needed to do to keep the tables and furniture out of the rain. Also, I was a very picky bride when it came to the way things looked...from the cocktail napkins...to the straws...to the paper cones that held the sweet potatoes fries...I wanted to have a say in it all!! And I was able to voice my opinion...and everything looked perfect...thanks Annalise!! I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Lola's to anyone having a catered event.

  • Lola's did a fantastic job catering our wedding! Our guests are still raving about the food and are looking forward to trying more of Chef Ed Kowalski's dishes at his restaurants Crave and Lola's Cafe in Poughkeepsie, NY. Best vendor we used during our wedding planning process.

  • We had gone to an event that was catered by Lola's during our engagement, and were completely impressed with the quality and service, and hearing other past client's positive reviews only solidified our desire to meet with them about catering our wedding. They were fantastic from the very first meeting, totally understanding our vision, and we were all enthusiastically sharing ideas to create an amazing event. Throughout the process they were great; whether we were communicating by email, phone or during in person visits with them to our venue, Ed and Annalise were so accessible, invested and enjoyable. It was easy to tell we were all on the same page, and excited about making our vision a reality, and worked with us to stay within budget as our guest list grew (and grew!) without ever compromising quality. And let me tell you, it worked! The wedding was a huge success, and Lola's, and especially Annalise, were an essential part! She was so organized, friendly and helpful throughout th... Read more

  • Most people will hopefully be able to brag about the food on their wedding day. Our guests certainly have been. What you may not realize is there is so much more that goes into making your wedding a success. Lola's goes above and beyond to make your wedding great. From the minute I met the Head Chef Eddie, he put us at ease and we felt like we could trust him with all of the decisions. He listened to what was really important to us and really made it happen. And the people helping making it happen is what really makes Lola's special. Eddie has a great team that really goes the extra mile and has fun doing it! Especially our Maitre d' Annalise. She was constantly on top of things before and during the event to make sure the little details were taken care of. If you don't believe me, see for yourself - go down to Crave in Poughkeepsie for dinner. You won't be disappointed.

  • We had the honor of having Chef Eddie Kowalski and Event Planner Annalise Puckette cater our wedding. From the beginning we knew the both of them had everything under control. When it came to the food, Chef Eddie and his staff did an amazing job. Each one of our guests had nothing but high praises when it came to the stations and appetizers. Chef Eddie's eye for detail and culinary expertise certainly came through in the dishes he prepared. As for Lola's event planner, Annalise, she also did an amazing job. From the menu to the table settings to the coordinating of all the other vendors, Annalise handled herself with the utmost of professionalism. We don't know what we would have done without her. She certainly deserves very high praises. The entire team at Lola's did an outstanding job at our wedding. From the bartenders to the servers, they all did a fantastic job. I know for certain that I would definitely recommend Lola's Catering to anyone who's looking to have ... Read more

  • Lola's catered our wedding on 9/24/11. I can not even begin to tell you what an absolutely amazing experience it was to work with Ed & Annalise (his assistant). I'll begin with the food. As the bride I didn't get to eat a whole lot (something I would have planned differently, but we already talked about celebrating our anniversary Crave-Ed's other restaurant.); however, the food was AMAZING. My husband's step-mother who is is one of those people who looks for the flaw in everything, said the halibut was the best fish she has ever had in her life. EVERYONE LOVED THE FOOD! Okay, now, as a bride, I was pretty anxious. Ed & Annalise, eased all my anxieties. I trusted them. They simple did what they said they were going to do. In this day in age that is hard to come by. I can not thank them enough for their responsiveness, flexibility and professionalism. Their efforts really contributed to making my wedding the best day of my life.

  • Lola's cafe and catering catered our wedding at Locust Grove Estate in Poughkeepsie, NY. The staff made the planning process easy and always had creative serving and menu ideas to offer. Our guests complimented on how delicious the food was (specifically the mushroom ravioli and perfectly cooked beef tenderloin). Overall the experience was fantastic and we would highly recommend Lola's to anyone planning a special event.

  • Annalise and Ed are amazing. They were open to all our suggestions and worked with us to come up with a menu that was perfect for us and our wedding. We had a 4 meal, family style service and everything was perfect. Our guests are still talking about our passed hors d'oeuvre and the dinner service and we have had nothing but positive reviews. Also, Annalise helped with all the details and her team the day of were great. If you can book Lola's, then do it, you will not be disappointed.
