Before I heard of Lola's Cafe, I'll always travel to places like Bishan Park, Changi V, Rochester Park, etc for a good weekend brunch with my boyfriend, thank you for fetching me all over Singapore ^_^. I'm a super fan of having good brunches during weekend. Now, with Lola's Cafe situated within walking distance from my house, I can no longer complain about not having a decent brunch venue nearby! It is only about 3-5 minutes walk from Kovan MRT Station, take the exit towards Simon Road and you'll see the cafe on your left after you walked pass Kovan Residences (condominium). There're parallel parking slots along the stretch of Simon Road too, a good place to practice parallel parking, especially the flat terrain behind Kovan Melody (I practiced over there before). =P

Our table was right in front of the counter and thus it's very easy to get the attention of the waiter and waitresses when we need their assistance. I read from a blog post (written 3 months ago) that this cafe was set up by two graduates from SMU and they were the only people managing the cafe on a Friday afternoon. However, I saw about 4 people in the cafe today. I guessed their business has been getting better and better! Congratulations! Also, the menu shared by the blogger was a little bit outdated in terms of pricing. For example, under the weekend brunch menu, the Avocado Eggs Benedict was SGD 13 nett three months ago and now it's increased to SGD 15 nett. There's no GST and service charge, very easy to divide the cost among friends. =)
They have different menus between weekdays and weekend. Their weekend brunch menu is only available from 10am to 3pm, after which they'll have a different set of menu.
|Snacks and Desserts Menu|
We ordered Lola's Full Monty Breakfast (SGD 15 nett) and Avocado Eggs Benedict (SGD 15 nett) as our main dishes, Caramelized Banana Earl Grey Tart with Pistachio Topping (SGD 4 nett) as dessert and two glasses of warm water (complimentary).

|Avocado Eggs Benedict|
Avocado Eggs Benedict consists of avocado and honey baked ham with two poached eggs served on multigrain bread slices and topped with hollandaise sauce. I was doubting the combination of avocado and eggs benedict BUT the taste of the food proved me wrong. It tasted heavenly!! I'm so gonna order this dish instead for my next brunch visit to Lola's Cafe!! If you love eggs benedict, you should never miss this gem. I kept stealing little portions of the avocado eggs benedict from my BF's plate. =D

If you wanna give this cafe a shot, do remember to bring enough cash or NETS as they do not accept credit cards payment. I see a good potential for this cafe to make it big as their food and service were really commendable. I'll be back for either another round of brunch or dinner, or even both!
