A nice place to stop in for drinks

My boyfriend and I stopped by on a Monday to have a drink before we left to come home to New York. The bartender, Erin, was extremely nice to talk to. He told us about the fried chicken they make on Monday nights and we will make sure we try it the next time we are up there.

Their fancy burgers are out of this world. I have been once in the past and want to try it again because the last time was really good. This time was even better. The cook/cooks do an amazing job. The combination of flavors is a welcome to your pallet.

I just had the pleasure of visiting Karla's last week while on a weekend getaway in New Hope to celebrate my husband's birthday. We made a reservation at Karla's for lunch based on all the fabulous reviews online. And the reviews were right!

This is probably the best restaurant in New Hope. Great for breakfast and dinner. Some unusual dishes but most are so unbelievably good. Can't say enough about Karla's , been going for years and they never let us down.

We went there with two friends who had never been to Karla's. They loved it. The food was fresh. However, we did not imbibe in any alcohol. Thanks for the great service from the crew. They were very attentive.

We sat outside on a beautiful afternoon. Although it took a long time to get our food, the wait was worth it for the Mac n Cheese! We had it with bacon, oh yum! We also split an angus burger which was cooked to perfection,
