Lola's is best known to some as that pit stop of tasty heaven on the ground floor of the Oxford Circus branch of Topshop. Victoria Jossel and Romy Lewis grew up in the same area of London when their families moved from South Africa in the early 90’s. Their relaxed and warm South African families love entertaining - so growing up life revolved around food and desserts. Victoria graduated in Computer Science and worked for Goldman Sachs for five years. She always felt like she could be much more creative, and started a simple website to take orders for cupcakes from her home kitchen. Demand was so high that she approached Romy, a Journalism graduate, about coming on board to help set up LOLA’s in 2007. The rest as they say is hostory!
Lola's use only the finest natural ingredients and they're always baked fresh on the day of delivery.
