Working with Annalise and Eddie was awesome. They worked with us to create a menu that had exactly what wanted to serve our guests. They will go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. Annalise made sure that everything on the day of the wedding was set up exactly how I asked. The food and drinks were amazing and we are still getting compliments about how delicious everything was. I would recommend Lola's to anyone that needs a caterer in the area.

We cannot say enough how wonderful it was to work with Lola's Catering for our wedding. From the very first time we sat down with Annalise and began to plan our big day, we received impeccable professionalism, flexibility, and understanding with what we were looking for in our caterer. Our menu was completely personalized to fit our specific requests, and the food prepared by Chef Ed was incredible! On our wedding day, there was not one thing to worry about, Lola's took care of everything. Our venue was set up perfectly, the waiters were professional and courteous, and again, the food was outstanding. Every guest we spoke to was raving about the quality and taste. Many said it was the best food they had ever had, not just at a wedding, but better than anything they ever ordered at a restaurant. The entire night was flawless because of every last detail being taken care of; from the tables, centerpiece setups, and bar, to the professional service we received. We highly recommend Lola's to anyone who is searching for the best in catering, and we can confidently say that Lola's helped to make our wedding day incredible.

The whole staff was amazing. From our menu planning and tasting to the event. Annalise was amazing to work with. She and her staff made the day go flawlessly. Annalise made sure the walk down the aisle was the best it could be arranging the seating and timing the bridal party. She even made sure that my 3 year old niece (flower girl) went the right way. Through out the cocktail hour she was bringing us food and drinks. During the reception the crew made sure that every one was fed and that the cake was cut. Annalise worked with our DJ to make sure that first dances were coordinated with the courses, she even helped keep the less than perfect Photographer in line. I got to eat the delicious food we had, spend time with my guests, and dance the night away all thanks to Lola's Catering

I (mother of the bride) couldn't have been happier with Lola's Cafe and Catering. From the moment I accidentally met Annalise the banquet coordinator I knew this was the caterer for my daughter's wedding. Annalise was perfect in helping make preliminary decisions about the menu and in executing all the details of the wedding day. Her level of professionalism will relieve you of all catering related stresses. The service staff went above and beyond professional and thoroughly kept our guests happy and satisfied. The food was amazing and wonderful!! I have received numerous compliments from my guests stating that they thought the food was superb. I believe we made the perfect decision in choosing Lola's Cafe and Catering for the wedding and strongly recommend their service for your party needs as well.

Lola's did a fabulous job of catering my daughter's wedding reception. The food was excellent. The staff was so helpful, so polite, accommodating and easy to work with. Annalise assisted us with the planning and Mary was our Maitre'd. Everything went smoothly, and I have heard nothing but complements from the guests. When you hire this team you will be able to relax and know that you have put your faith in the right people!

WE LOVE LOLA'S! Everyone we worked with at Lola's was fantastic. Annalise helped us plan our menu and details and Mary was our Maitre D, and they were both amazing. They both had so much expertise, were so patient and helpful, and really wanted to make our day exactly how we wanted it. Mary was so awesome about taking care of me and my husband -- she checked in with us to be sure we got to eat (I know, right?), got some time alone, and that the event ran at the pace that we were comfortable with. The food couldn't have been more delicious, and the staff was very respectful and professional. We got so many compliments from our guests. Seriously, couldn't recommend these guys more highly!

Annalise and Eddie of Lola's Cafe made our wedding everything we spent 2 years dreaming about! Their responsiveness to my endless emails, incredible organization, flexibility and calm demeanor made me feel confident that everything was under control while we planned our wedding from across the country. In the days before the event, they went out of their way to meet with us to review last-minute details and make adjustments to the menu, rentals, and setup, even meeting us on a holiday! Beyond the amazing customer service and hospitality, the food was incredible. All our guests raved about the food, and many told us it was the best meal they'd ever eaten. Lola's Cafe absolutely made our wedding the event that it was and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer.
