Carolyn's Cafe is a cozy Breakfast and Lunch Cafe, ranked the #1 Breakfast Spot in Redlands by Yelp!! We are known for our hearty, delicious breakfasts (Breakfast is served all day!) - But we also serve great sandwiches, salads, burgers, and soups for lunch. Our Signature Item is our Fresh Baked Coffee Cake which is served warm and topped with a generous scoop of whipped butter! We offer To Go orders on all of our food items, including our Coffee Cake. Whole Coffee Cakes are also available to order (requires minimum 24 hours advance notice). And, we have just moved to a larger location with double the seating capacity as our former location! Hope to see you soon!
