Great patio to catch up with some friends and have lunch, when weather is nice. I'm not a huge fan of the order counter set up... Seems a little chaotic. Would love if someone would come and take orders St the table. That would make this place so much better :) it's right off the bike trail so that's nice.... More

Seemed a bit overpriced but was a nice little place to get some breakfast. People were very nice and food was okay. Had a nice story time for kids.

Great place to have breakfast or lunch and get take out salads. Really enjoy the eggs and bacon and avocado toast. Love to eat on the patio. Only bad thing is that Karen's is closed on Sundays.

They have nice salad choices. I had the spinach salad with a very tasty dressing . Portion is just right. It's a bit crowded and noisy, but it was lunch time. Staff are friendly . I would go back and try the desserts.

This is one of those local restaurants that should not be missed. Everything is very well done from soups to sandwiches and great salads. The outrageous desserts are not to be missed. When there don't miss the new Museum of Wonder and Delight that is just across the street in a parking garage. It is a fantasy world like no... More

We've been going to Karen's since they opened the place, and the quality of the breakfast foods and pastries in the morning and the great soup and sandwiches at lunch have kept us coming back for years. There's a very nice patio to spend your time during the warmer months, otherwise there are tables inside. Some days there's a line... More

Check out the menu before you get in line...may seem busy but the line goes fast...hardest part is finding a seat...but the food is worth it...but beware...they serve you a lot of food

Came here for breakfast and sat in the outdoor dining area. Ordered the apple sausage breakfast which includes scrambled eggs and potatoes. It was good with ample portions. The staff seem to know many of the customers, very personable....so personable that someone behind me (who the cashier knew) got helped first before me, even though I was inline for a... More
