Friendly little place with great food at great prices. Quite possibly the best burger in Utah.

this used to be a great place to eat but has really gone downhill lately. The last time we were there a heavy set waitress was i guess "correcting" the waitresses but was so sloud and rude and within earshot of all customers that we were embarassed. If your going to correct the help it really should be done in private using proper language. Our so called waiter didnt have a clue and could not answer any questions except to say i dont know how to answer that and them wandered aimless around the cafe. I hope it goes back to the way it used to be soon so we can enjoy eating there again

We discovered Karen's today and we were pleasantly surprised until the heavyset lady running the register starting talking down to the poor waitress about how she needed to not be cleaning in back and be out front and then this same lady was so rude at the register we probably won't go back.. THE FOOD WAS MARVELOUS. I was very impressed by the quality and taste. I have to say that the place is darling and well decorated but the lady running the place was totally RUDE and so irritating. Screaming across the room that a guy needed to pay for another meal, go on and on to this poor new waitress in front of all the customers etc. The Chicken Fried Steak was EXACTLY the way I love it.. but you go for the total package and Karen's didn't deliver.

If you are seeking the perfect home-cooked meal in a great American atmosphere, it doesn't get any better than Karen's! Amazing breakfast, hearty lunches and delicious dinners are all supervised by Karen herself. This grand matron of dining walks among her customers to ensure that the food is served, hot, fresh and to everyone's satisfaction.

The great thing about Karen's is the warm atmosphere of the American West. The interior is decorated with her personal touches that give you a feel like you are home visiting mom. From the pics of Elvis and Johnny Cash to her own paintings of the Utah landscape, Karen's charm is felt throughout the establishment. Bust most important, in the food.

Her large helpings and delicious offerings leave every visitor satisfied. Have the "Crumby Chicken" or her wonderful "Meatloaf." The food is always prepared fresh and is always good. The prices are also really great and you can't beat the service. It's a great place to meet for breakfast and hash out a deal or take the family!

If you are in Ogden and desire a real taste of western hospitality, Karen's Cafe is the place to go.
