We are lucky to leave in this beautiful resort town. Where do the townies go to eat? Karla's. The food is phenomenal, the service is always friendly and the prices are reasonable.

We have been going to Karla's for years. The food is great, the staff is great...BUT the bar is AMAZING!! Best drinks in New Hope, or pretty much anywhere around. Ricky make almost all of his juices by hand: watermelon, mango, coconut, pineapple - you name it. Sophie is amazing as well - have to have her pineapple margarita. It... More

As a guest at the Woolverton Inn in Stockton (on a Monday night), I wanted a nice, relaxing place to have some supper.

Nice find in New Hope. Funky little place with very good food and friendly service. Decent sized menu. We were a party of 11 and everything was handled well. Good bar drinks. Prices very reasonable.

Karla's offers a great lunch menu; reasonably priced too! We sat outside and enjoyed People Watching in New Hope, PA. There was also dining available inside and at the bar too. Juicy Angus Burger, done as requested. The real French fries were crispy, as ordered. My friend had a delicious Mushroom and Spinach Omelette with real homefries. Our wine-by-the-glass topped...

I love this place and once again had a great dining experience. The mac n cheese appetizer is fantastic and simply a must try for any table. Tonight we ordered the Crab Stuffed Flounder and the Beef Tenderloin both wonderful options.

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

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!

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.
