It’s nice to get a local, food-friendly vibe downtown during lunch. Café Lola, located just east of High on Broad, operates in a fashion that reminds you that your lunch hour isn’t the house’s first rodeo. Lola’s food is consistent, quickly prepared and familiar in concept. It’s also really friggin’ good, breakfast and lunch. During at least one visit, be sure to try the Spicy Thai Noodle Salad ($5.50)—linguine tossed with red cabbage, celery, carrots, and chilled chicken tossed in a slightly spicy Thai dressing.
