Karen's is a Folsom favorite; people love to see and be seen in this hip spot. Personally, while the food is innovative and tasty, I find it overpriced and overhyped. Definitely the spot for business luncheons or ladies who lunch.

Love this place. There are so many choices, you can come here everyday for a month and still have something new to try. Everyone should try Karen's. The wait is worth it.

Karen's is a nice little eatery popular among locals and cyclists alike. It has a nice outside patio for dining and room for bicycles. Menu items are definitely somewhat pricey and for me, though admittedly I've not tried an abundance of baked things, the bakery items so-so. We ordered a special cake for my aunt's birthday and I thought it... More

Great sandwiches, salads and desserts. Come early during the day the lunch crowd can get big. Try the homemade Ho Ho it is fabulous. Never had a bad meal.

Went to Karen's with the whole family. It was a hit. The best egg salad sandwich and bread pudding! The kid's loved the grilled cheese paninis. Wifey loved the salad. Everything was fresh as expertly prepared. Karen came out to visit and check on us. We were all happy and well taken care of. I highly recommend.

We love going here for breakfast. The pastries & muffins are fabulous. Coffee is fresh and the coffee drinks are wonderful. Small breakfasts are good, but if your going here to have breakfast I would stick to the pastries/muffins. They have highchairs for the little ones. Extra busy on Saturday.....be prepared for a line if you show up around 0830.

I LOVE going here. I'd go more often but I live more than an hour away. Every salad I've had is excellent. Every soup, sandwich - interesting and delicious. Desserts are generally good too. Some more to my liking than others. Teas, coffee - good. Just a bit loud sometimes.
