I have enjoyed Karen's Bakery for breakfast, brunch, and sometimes for a sweet treat in the middle of the day. Always fresh, always tasty, always a great selection! I love their treats so much I made a basket of cookies and muffins to give to the guys who worked very hard on my car. They loved it! On the pricier... More

My wife ordered my birthday cake from there and everything about it was awesome! It was a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. My wife told them that she wanted a frosty beer mug on it and it came out beautiful! I've also had their chocolate croissants which were great as well.

Our group of ladies (9) tried several salads to share and several desserts. ALL delicious. Cute interior and friendly staff. Portions are generous. We will go back.

I've been coming to Karens for a number of years now. First only for their baked goods and then for breakfast and lunch. We even had my daughter's graduation brunch there this year! It never disappoints! The food is fresh, always made to order, the people are so eager to please you, and the pastries...they should be illegal they are... More

Get there early! Karen's food is delicious and beautiful! She and staff serve a beautiful breakfast/brunch and bakery European style. Popular with local bicyclists. Fair warning: usually closes around 2PM. Does catering and special orders baked goods.

The dark roast coffee was top notch (maybe I needed it early in the morn?!) And the scones are perfectly flaky and sweet - exactly what a scone should be.

I like coming to Karen's for casual meals and sometimes to work. I usually have my laptop when I come here to work since they have free WiFi access and the people are super friendly. It still has that cozy, small town, sophisticated but humble vibe. Today I ordered tried the royal oatmeal cookies -- OMG. I ended up ordering... More

I love Karen's Bakery. Its a huge favorite with locals, the food is always excellent (not cheap, not overly expensive) and the setting is very comfortable. This is the best bakery in Folsom as well and the only place I will get special occasion cakes.

Thank folsomite
