    Lula Cafe is amazing. They essentially have two menus. The more static, less expensive is great and still has items from 12 years ago. The chicken is incredible. The other menu changes and is great.

    I love Lula. Right now they have a cornbread French toast and it is amazing. I highly recommend it. However, I was not sold on their Bloody Mary...it had a weird sweet flavor to it.
