A Little Bit About Lola's
We started Lola's in November of 1998 as a place for friends, family and the few adventurous tourists and surfers for lunch and a drink. We are now in our 24th year of our labor of love.
While striving to keep the feel of the local surf hangout, we have done much to expand to accommodate the thousands of daily guests in the high season and to be caretakers of our beloved Playa Avellana and the surrounding community year round.
Lola’s uses organic produce and free range organic chicken and eggs, and our beef is grass fed and organic as well. We recycle, compost (or feed Ave and Ana - more on them later!) and convert fryer oil to biodiesel.
We support the local communities, police, schools, children’s advocacy groups, lifeguards, beach clean ups, animal clinics, a variety of local charities, several environmental projects and local, national and international surf competitions.
Our waste water treatment facility supplies clean water for our reforestation projects and gardens. We have eliminated all plastic cups, bottles, carry-out containers and straws. We have installed solar panels and will be off the grid as soon as better and cheaper batteries are available here. Lola’s is climate neutral and has been since we opened in 1998. We hire locally, pay our staff a sustainable living wage and think of our loyal and conscientious employees as family.
Your patronage contributes directly to our efforts and is greatly appreciated!
Hope to see you soon,
Christi, Donatus, Eden & Nikki
