Does anybody know if the Lola Rosa on Parc is actually open now? Thanks.

  1. Still papered up, with a sign saying "opening very soon"...nothing on their FB or Twitter about a date. I am curious to see what it's like.

      1. Lola Rosa opens on december 11th

        1. We were there last week. The grocery part is not open yet but the main resto part is. There also seems to be another area yet to come. The main part has some bar seating & some tables. Atmosphere seemed a bit more upscale than the Milton location but I haven't been to that one in a while so may be mis-remembering. The menu seemed similar to the other location; vegetarian & vegan, multicultural influences. I had the vegetarian poutine, with a black bean-based sauce. It was very tasty; good fries & curds, and felt a bit healthier than regular poutine. My companions had the burrito, which came with a big salad & pile of rice. The soup of the day was turnip, pear & something else, and was lovely. We shared the cheesecake, which came layered with fruit in a jar, with crust crumbles on top. It may be my new favourite cheesecake in town! I admit that I tend to be a tad over-enthusiastic about new places at first but I am certainly happy to have this place nearby. Hope it survives on what seems to be a bad block for restos. By the way, the service was very nice; friendly & enthusiastic but not overly so.

          1. It's a "good bet" according to Sarah Musgrave.
