Whenever I need a cake for birthdays and special occasions, I always head to Karen's Bakery. So far, I just love what they have there. My #1 choice was the French Hazelnut ___ (A French word that's hard to pronounce). And then there's the white Tahitian Vanilla which wasn't too overpowering. The Tiramisu is good, but nothin special about it.... More

A well-known eatery for breakfast/brunch/lunch just off Sutter Street in historic Folsom. Make sure to fight through the sweaty bike-pants sporting crowd and snag an outdoor table with shade on a sunny morning. Many of the breakfast offerings come with their signature sourdough or whole grain toast which is scrumptious when adorned with butter and fresh berry preserves! Ample parking... More

I've stopped by here a couple of times but it's usually too busy. I ordered eggs, potatoes and toast. The eggs were ok, the potatoes tasted weird and the toast was dry and not really toasted. The cookies were pretty good. Not my kind of breakfast place

Karen's Bakery is a great spot for breakfast or lunch in old town Folsom. Convenient to the American River Parkway and with outdoor seating, you will often see cyclist pulling in for refuel. Everything I have eaten there has been extremely fresh and tasty. A little pricey, but given the high quality ingredients, worth it in my opinion. In addition... More

In Old Town Folsom it quickly became a go-to spot. really popular among the bike riders coming off the bike trail in the morning. A sunny day on their patio is just, well, happiness. A very tasty selection of breakfasts, sandwiches, soups, salads and of course...the pastries which are amazing. And a big diverse selection. Get something to go.
