We usually stop into Carleen's about once a week for breakfast, and the occasional lunch, and have never been disappointed. The wait-staff is fast and on top of things, as well as super friendly. The omelets are huge and they don't skimp on the fillings, the menu is fairly large, and the coffee refills keep coming. They also usually have... More

I had to spend a few hours in Lawrence, MA while my vehicle was being repaired and was directed to Carleen's. On entering, I was met with an airy space, clean tables, the smell of breakfast, and smiling faces. I found a table with a power outlet and was immediately served with coffee and the wi-fi password. I ordered the... More

Recommended by our hotel front desk. A local place with prompt service and good food. The homemade corned beef hash was one the best I've had. The breakfast menu had a great variety and every dish I saw served looked delicious. I would definitely return when visiting this area again.

This place was highly recommended by my sister in law. There was a wait line when we arrived. The people were seated pretty quickly. The food and service were good.

A group of friends were looking to kill some time and get something to eat about 1030 on a Saturday morning and we stumbled upon Carleens. The food was great, the prices were reasonable, and our waitress was friendly and attentive. I had the Irish Eggs Benny which were delicious and everyone else was equally satisfied with their food.

Carleen's is your typical little coffee shop. It does have some great antiques including a cast iron stove on display but the food and service were nothing special. Service varies greatly according to who you get for a waitress. The prices are ok.
