We had been touring for a month and Caroline's was a refreshing change from the
chain restaurants and quick bites we had been having along the way. Gene, Caroline's husband, host and wait staff was charming and fun to chat with. Caroline is the chef and food preparer. We had the freshly homemade trio salad which was the special of the day. Egg, tuna and chicken salads served on a bed of lettuce with sliced tomato and a hardboiled egg. It was a nice change from the fast food and french fries we'd been having lately.
Going to Caroline's is like going to your friends house for lunch. We wish we had had more time
to explore New Castle. It's a very unique city.
If you find yourself in the area we highly recommend the Caroline experience.

Was in Old New Castle for the day and had several choices for lunch, but I'm so glad I chose Caroline's. The dining room is cozy with a beautiful fireplace. I had chicken salad which was so fresh! Served with mozzarella and tomato slices. Coffee was delicious, freshly made. Gene was a great host and his wife, Caroline, was in the kitchen. Must be really pretty once the leaves and flowers are out. Don't miss it!

Caroline's was the perfect place for our group of 28 people visiting historic New Castle, DE. Gene and his wife Caroline offered three lunch choices for our tour group with a side salad and beverages. The tables were set with linen tablecloths and napkins.

Their signature homemade rice pudding with raisins and rum was the best. Everything is made from scratch, and the food was delicious. Caroline received many compliments. Needless to say we'll be back.

The owners make you feel welcome and take great pride in the food they serve. Caroline's is known for the best food in town. What a wonderful experience for all of us from West Chester, PA!

When travelling, we try to avoid fast food restaurants along the highways as much as possible. Looking for a lunch spot on the Delaware border, we picked New Castle, Delaware, as a destination. Despite the detour due to construction, we found ourselves in historic New Castle, Delaware first capital. We found a café nestled on an old tree lined street with a large bow window, Caroline’s. A warm welcome greeted us. The daily specials were delicious: a soup, an assortment of fresh salads and a generous sandwich. Conversation was rolling on with the owner and we were delighted by our find. It would have been totally perfect if they had had an espresso machine… Nobody is perfect. A stroll in the old town completed our lunch break. Highly recommended.
