Lunch at Karen's is always a treat. Fabulous salads and even better pastries. I have also been to many events in town that were catered by Karen's - also excellent! My most recent favorite little treat was the guitar cookies that Karen's provided for the groundbreaking for the Johnny Cash Trail in Folsom.

Love Karen's! Creative, delicious salads and baked goods. Typically I can't get past the salad selection to try anything else. But their Salmon entree has also always been consistently great. Karen's is my hands down favorite place for lunch.

On the basis of positive reviews my wife and I hosted four friends to Karen' Bakery for lunch. We joined the queue and in due course received our variety of plates and drinks. Well "ordinary" would be an understatement - sandwiches were mediocre, bland and little taste, the salads were a bunch of leaves/slices with no dressing. My wife had... More

This sunny little corner cafe in the historic district has a huge following, from mom and baby groups to cyclists to Bay Area-Tahoe travelers looking for (and finding) delicious coffee, pastries, sandwiches and salads. Karen's also does a huge amount of catering, and is the go-to place for the most amazingly decorated and mouth-wateringly scrumptious cakes west of Berkeley. Her... More

I've met friends for lunch and the menu choices and food do not knock my socks off. Not bad, not great.

Breakfast was really good. we had the corned beef and the pastry shell filled breakfast. Both were good. Prices a little high, but not bad. Their bakery items are their high point. LOVE the adult Hoho. Went and bought one of almost all pieces of cakes they offer, for Christmas dinner. They were a huge hit. Hoho's were highlight. Have... More

This is a very busy spot for coffee, tea, treats, and lunch and breakfast. The chai tea latti I had was great as was the scone and the muffin we had later. I didn't try a lot of the food so I can't comment on taste or quality, but the food we did have was very good. I want to... More

I don't understand the hype. The sweets aren't anything special & the breakfasts are unimpressive & expensive! $14 for a breakfast & I have to pay an additional $1 per egg for quality eggs -- am I in San Francisco or Folsom?!

Tucked into the heart of old Folsom. A destination spot for breakfast and lunch for sports enthusiasts. Near the bike trail, light rail and river; it is packed with people taking a break from fun adventures. Food is made there at the shop. Delicious pastries, salads, cakes, scones and entrees to cover anything you may want. They also have a... More

Their sandwiches and salads are the best, everything always fresh, healthy and good size portions. You do have to stand in line to order, but it goes fast and then they bring it to you. Great outside sidewalk cafe portion when the weather is cooperative as well.
