Dining out is getting increasingly expensive, and it is difficult to find an affordable restaurant in Singapore which offers decent main courses for under S$20. Which is why Lola’s Cafe at Simon Road deserves a mention. Almost all the dishes on the brunch menu (10am – 3pm) and dinner menu (6pm – 10pm) are priced below S$15 nett. For a wallet-friendly meal, note down Lola’s Cafe.
For brunch, you can have a Farmer’s Bratwurst Roll (S$8 nett), or a simple Sunny-side Stacked Sandwich. I highly recommend the Avocado Eggs Benedict (S$15 nett). The eggs were perfectly poached, and the portion was generous.
On the dinner menu, there are options like Seafood Marinara (S$14 nett), Duck Leg in Orange Mustard Sauce (S$16 nett) and Spicy Grill Chicken Burger (S$14 nett). Desserts, which are baked in-house, are also very affordable. The Lemon Meringue Tart (S$4) and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Tart (S$5) are the best way to end your meal on a sweet note.
The food at Lola’s Cafe is not out-of-this-world-good, but they are more than good enough for a simple and fuss-free meal. What we really like is that it is a great hangout spot where you can linger over coffee and desserts after your meal. If you are staying in the area, you should drop by for brunch this weekend.
