Lola Stephens, a proprietor as friendly as her food is good, serves up huge portions of burgers and Cajun chow from a succinct menu. The dining room is communal and friendly, and Lola is a blessing.
Lola Stephens feels she's blessed to have her cafe open, but trust us: Austin diners are the ones who are blessed

A subtle kick from the red beans and rice, combined with the perfect breading on the fried shrimp and oyster po-boys, makes everyone a crazy Cajun.
