We had a great dinner experience at LoLa’s Cafe. Fresh farm to table food was a true statement. Started with the scrumptious muhammara dip and freshly made assorted sourdough bread. Highly recommended. Sourdough bread was the freshest assortment, loved trying all them, so healthy for you. Halloumi salad, Kale Salad, salmon and the steak au poivre all made to perfection and did not disappoint. . Atmosphere was nice and the waitress prompt and helpful with suggestions. Definitely will be back to try more of the menu and try the breakfast menu as well.

About the restaurant
Ever since the first caveman decided to slap a side of mammoth over the cave fire, man (and woman) has enjoyed the flavor of food cooked over a wood fire. At Timber Wood-Fire Bistro, all of our dishes are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. They are then cooked either over our state-of-the-art wood burning grill or in a brick oven heated by the embers of logs.
Cooking in this way imparts a slight smokiness as it brings out the natural flavors of the food. A juicy ribeye sizzles and caramelizes, giving the tender beef a gorgeous crust. The homemade dough for our pizzas rises in the heat, and the crust gets to be the perfect combination of crisp and chewy. Vegetables share an entirely new flavor profile when cooked over wood. Dining at Timber brings an experience both classic and innovative. Come eat and drink with us as you watch our fireflies dance above the wood-fired grill.

T was good. Service good. Food good. My only complaint as the crowd increased so did the noise. Is the music necessary at that point?
