Karen’s Bakery Café

  • American, Bakery

Essential Information

705 Gold Lake Dr.
Folsom, CA 95630

Karen Holmes’ cafe has become a happy crossroad for Folsom and its historic district, thanks to its imaginative yet comforting eats, bright, cheerful room with windows for walls and expansive patio. But it’s the food that drew everyone in the first place. Breakfasts are inventive and satisfying, like the puff pastry tart with Gruyère, bacon and a sunny-side-up egg. Lunches range from sandwiches to a salsa verde slow-cooked pork. And the baked goods— think vegan apple walnut muffins and addictive chocolate chip cookies—can heal the soul. Portions are big, but not too big, and just about everything Holmes does in her kitchen manages to be both familiar and ingenious, not to mention tasty.
