Great Food - Cold Tables

Afte a long absence we went back to Karla's. Quite a nice venture back. The food was really good. The adult Mac and Cheese is sinful. Cuban sandwich a must. Only problem, the front room has no insulation, the evening wa cold, and we ate with our coats on. Once Spring comes we will go back!

Cool, eclectic environment, friendy accommodating staff and great food! The mac and cheese was great and enough for 2-3 people. Everything was flavorful, seasoned perfectly and cooked just right. We will be returning to try some of the other selections.

Karla's has the best bartender in all of New Hope: Ricky! He is a New Hope legend. The cocktails are always varied and extremely delicious, with fresh ingredients. The watermelon in the summer and the pumpkin in the fall are a must. The atmosphere is festive and fun. The food is casual and comforting, but very tasty. They really do... More

The menu had some awesome comfort food and also more upscale choices. The foie gras burger was unbelievable! Our server gave great suggestions and checked back to ensure that we were happy with our dinner and drinks. We can't wait to eat there when we are back in New Hope.

Recently had dinner here with friends to celebrate a birthday. Hadn't been there in many years as was very pleasantly surprised. Very good apps (the mac and cheese is enough for at least 2 people) and the marinated pork sandwich was outstanding. I can't imagine not ordering it again when we return. Service was friendly and good. One note, if... More

A friend and I stopped for lunch in this really cool restaurant. I LOVE eclectic so this decor made me feel right at home. Busy, tables close together but several levels and loads of sunlight streaming in. I had decided to eat light & healthy and considered such offerings as Radicchio, Spinach & Frissee Salad or Vegetable Quesadilla but.. TODAY'S... More

I think our order, from what I can remember, will outline the diverse nature of their well-executed menu: Calamari App: nicely done sriracha aioli, lightly battered plump calamari; just enough salt. Baked Brie App: with shaved almonds & warm honey…no need for the puff pastry that one usually finds. Poached Pear Salad: Ordered as an entrée, they accommodated with a... More

Stopped in late Monday afternoon just for a cocktail and appetizer at the bar and decided to stay for dinner. Service was excellent. Had the locals Monday dinner which was very good and generous portions. The bartender was terrific and drinks very tasty!!!! Will definitely be back. We were here once before in Warmer weather just for drinks with friends.... More

This is a funky little eatery in the lovely town of New Hope...unfortunately, the service is indifferent and the food is pretty unimaginative, and a bit pricey to boot. We won't be going back.

Karla's is just off the main street in New Hope, in an old structure that looks well used. The food and service is excellent: I haven't had as good a Cuban sandwich in years. Prices aren't low-end but the food is worth the price. Only disappointment was the $10 price for wine by the glass.
