I took a friend to lunch for her birthday. The food was fabulous as always! I had the mushroom soup and salad sampler (which I almost always get!). We also had the cake sampler which encompasses a slice of 5 different cakes. Such a great idea as you don't have to make the difficult decision of choosing only one! Delicious!

I can honestly say this is the BEST breakfast in town! Everything they make is unique, made to order and always a one of a kind menu. The only downside is that it is on the pricier side, but I still find excellent value given the quality of the ingredients. Even their fruit salad is to die for! Super busy... More

Such a great place for a coffee and light breakfast. The quiche is always good or the breakfast specials. Desserts look dynamite although i haven't had any. Salads are fresh and tasty. Nice to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

I've been to Karen's many times. It is always wonderful! I took my parents there for lunch on Friday. I had the BLT and substituted avocado for the bacon. It had delicious fresh heirloom tomatoes and basil. My husband had a burger with house made fries. My mom had salmon and my dad had the BLT. We sat outside and... More

Consistently delicious. Three visits in three years and always a favorite stop in the Folsom area. Our table sampled the salmon and quinoa salad, a burger and two BLT summer sandwiched, one with bacon and the other with avocado. All A+

If you feel like a salad for lunch, try Karen's. They are fresh and different. The cakes and desserts are wonderful. You can order a cake for your special occasion too. Have a salad and save room for dessert, you won't regret it. Nice outdoor seating too.

We have a lot of August family birthdays. And everyone likes a different kind of cake. Karen's solves the problem by letting me order by the slice. I preordered a dozen slices of exactly what was wanted. And didn't have to get 4 cakes and still miss a few flavors. By the way the cake is fabulous. I've had lunch... More

At lunchtime plan on standing in line.., ôrder at counter,,pay then find somewhere to sit.. Many nice seats, lots of glass or if weather cooperates, do the patio, very relaxing.. Food is fairly good. Desserts - now you are talking. Everything is so delicious..try it all.. Staff is very friendly even when they are swamped!
