Karen's sits near the Folsom light rail stop and the American River bike trail, so it's a great place to being or end an outdoor adventure. I've mostly eaten lunch there and they have great salads and sandwiches. Today my husband and I had breakfast. My granola, yoghurt and fresh fruit was ample and delicious. The granola was homemade, but... More

Located in the "old" Folsom business district this restaurant offers a wonderful assortment of meals for breakfast or lunch. For those that have no fear of expanding their waistline a wide assortment of delicious pastry items stares at you through the glass deli cabinet as you walk by. A line usually forms leading to the counter where you pay for... More

This bakery is so popular it is difficult to find an empty chair during the breakfast hour. We ate on the shaded patio. I ordered the smallest breakfast item on the menu and it was huge! Scrambled eggs, done to perfection, and crisp, thick bacon. I shared a muffin with a friend and we could barely waddle out the door!... More

Incredible selection of pastries, their ham and cheese croissants are excellent. Lively and happy place to be on a Saturday morning.

Karens is a great morning stop. Delicious muffins and great to sit outside. Staff isn't the friendliest though.

My friends and I enjoyed a delicious, healthy lunch here! It is a bit noisy and crowded, so probably not a good choice for a business meeting or to have a serious conversation! The food is very tasty, MUUUUCCH better than what you would get at La Bou, so this is definitely a "go to" place for a quick and... More

The Menu at Karen's is always interesting with salad choices, sandwiches and soups! The food is fresh and attractive. The deserts are beautiful to look at and delectable! Cakes for all occasions are available for purchase. Karen's is the favorite stop for cyclists so get there early for a table either inside or out.

Nice, unusual lunches, scrumptious baked goods, easy access, great location, plenty of parking, close to shopping! All terrific attributes but the bread and sweet rolls is what I enjoy most. Ah the bearclaws . Sit outside on a nice day, it gets really busy lunchtime

Coffee is good with the pastry, This one of the few places that has pies to bring home...nice patio eating area. Very crowded in the breakfast hours as it is a popular stop over for bicycle riders. Good parking accross the street. A little on the... More

We go to Karen's quite often because it's right by the bike trail and a perfect place to end a bike ride. We usually eat outside since we're in bike clothes but inside is friendly and cozy. My favorites are: spinach salad with chicken (the chicken can be a bit dry sometimes though), the salmon pasta salad, the beet salad,... More
