Met a friend for lunch. Karen’s is always crowded so we thought it would be great. I ordered the Chinese chicken salad. Lettuce was limp and tasted old. Dressing also tasted very strange. I exchanged it for the Mediterranean salad. This salad was so oily...More

Karen’s is a great local bakery with healthy, homemade food. I always come here for lunch, so I can not comment on breakfast. Also, I have never tried a bakery item, but I hear they are wonderful. Unless I’m on vacation, I try to eat...More

The salads and sandwiches are always great but the desserts are the reason you have to go. Seasonal lunches are fantastic. Try the spinach salad or chicken cranberry sandwich if in season.

Every time I visit Karen’s, I am always pleasantly surprised to find each meal tastes even better than the last. Good healthy eating without costing a fortune. Nice outside patio sitting makes it cozy in the spring & summer time.

Best coffee in town. I don't eat a lot of sweets, but if I do...it's Karen's. Great selection. Special occasion cakes - all amazing! And breakfast and lunch to die for. Every dish is my new fav! Hard to choose. I love the poblano chicken...More
