Tight Quarters but good food

Located in a very old building the tables were close but overall the food was very good and service was good. We went for Brunch - six of us - and tried a number of items from the menu. All selections were good.

We've eaten here several times and are always pleased! While we like sitting outside on the patio looking at the charming surroundings and watching the people, a nice indoor meal can be very cozy and intimate as well! Brunch is an experience. There are so many options, and I'm a sucker for Eggs Benedict, but there are several variations on... More

Been to so many places in New Hope. Some much better than others. This was a winner. My wife started with the onion soup. Delicious. The broth was superb. I had a spicy pork sandwich and my wife had a delicious salad with goat cheese and pears. Excellent service. Our waiter was very attentive to my wife's gluten free diet... More

Stopped in for lunch last week. Not many places were open, but Karla's was and had a nice menu. The hummus appetizer was some of the best I've tasted and the panini was very filling for lunch. Would go back to try dinner.

Karla's is our favorite Monday night restaurant, when they have locals night, which has a special menu. We visit from CT every year for the week, and Monday it is Karla's for the fried chicken! It is a great heaping portion of fried chicken with a side of macaroni and cheese. Absolutely delicious and am already waiting for the next... More

Situated just a few steps from the main drag on Mechanic's St. is one of my favorite place to eat in New Hope. Split across two levels plus an outdoor patio seating can be a little tight but the friendly servers and bartenders do an exceptional job of accommodating even the most picky clients in the busiest times. Had the... More

We've eaten at Karla's several times, but not in a while. Just as I remembered it. We had the poutine fries to share. Pork belly, cheese curds, brown gravy. Sinfully delicious. Shared a poached pear salad, which was just ok, nothing special & A Moroccan Burger. Burger was pleasantly spiced with cumin, cinnamon, etc. that you would expect with Moroccan... More

We visited Karla's on a recent Friday evening. Among the six of us, we had the crab sandwich, poblano burger, risotto and crab, caesar salad, fries, calamari, garlic bread, etc. At the end of our meal, I polled those at my table and the vote was clearly average (a 3 out of 5). Other than the garlic bread that was... More

The food is always great here. Great value as well. The staff is friendly. It's a local favorite of mine. I love the old building and split level lay out. Good place for small parties.
