“Great place for coffee and breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Wonderful place to grab some coffee and a quick bite in the morning. Pastries were to die for and the atmosphere was very bright and inviting.

“The most European cafe in Folsom, CA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Even though the personnel lacks of manners, professionalism, courtesy and the milk of human kindness I rated it high because they do have really good breakfast and decent selection of European style confectionery. They are conveniently located close to the bike trail. You pay at the register, are given a number and find a seat. The covered outdoor seating is pleasant enough, even on a hot day. The weekends get super busy so if you plan on coming on a weekend you should get there early otherwise you will wait a long time for a table and also for a food.

“Great meeting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Karen's offer a nice local coffee shop atmosphere. Bakery items and lunch items are very good. It can get a bit noisy but weather permitting you can enjoy sitting outside. Within walking distance to the heart of Old Folsom.

“Excellent little lunch/dessert spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Variety of different freshly prepared salads, excellent egg salad sandwich, well-prepared espresso drinks, yummy desserts, friendly staff, and it helps that Karen, the owner, is usually around.
