If Frasier Crane lived in Seattle and were actually a real person, Lola is definitely where he would grab a bite with Niles and commit some kind of social faux pas. While it’s casual enough for a meal with your friends, it also somewhat upscale - the perfect kind of setting for your parents to meet your new significant other over some Mediterranean food (get the seasonal scramble at brunch and the lamb burger for dinner). Need to break the ice? Order the cinnamon doughnuts with vanilla bean mascarpone and fruit compote, and shove a whole one directly into your mouth.
