Update on Lola’s Cafe

Last week, we shared with you the efforts of some Ladera Ranch residents to bring a unique, healthy European-style bistro to Ladera Ranch.  Much needed, we said!  Well, they reached out to us with a comment and some additional information.  You can read the comments thread in the original article here.  And below is their updated video (we will correct the link in the original article as well).
