Karen’s Bakery Café is (grateful to be) open.

KBC is open from 7 - 3, Tuesday - Saturday.

We are back, with seating inside and out. We’ve adjusted our capacity inside, trying to make sure the place is comfortable for everyone, and have retained the full patio outside, which is still well spaced out (and on the shady side of the building). Turns out the “new normal” is pretty sweet.
With the return to full capacity, we are able to set our sights back on the food we love to make. Our salad case is now full of the seasonal foods we love so much, our cook-to-order menu has “plumped up” by adding old favorites back, and the bakery staff is knocking themselves out to supply us with pre-pandemic quantities of your favorite baked goods.

It was a short-lived moment that we were restriction-less. The return-to-the-mask mandate was not a fun moment for us, but the fact is we want to do the right thing, so we’re masking up again and asking all patrons to do the same. Please bring your own mask, and wear it, when you come inside the building. When you think about it, the KBC staff has been masked for 16 months, and is doing it out of respect for each other, our customers, and the community at large. As an owner, I am so proud of the hardworking team that helped keep us going through all these recent ups and downs. What a group!

We are so grateful for the support that the KBC community has shown us….we are well aware that your support made a difference in our survival. That was an immeasurable compliment to us, and we are so grateful for your support.

A last note: we remain committed to cleaning, and your health and safety, as well as our own. Please wear your masks, and we’ll wear ours. It’s a good way to humbly share our humanity, and show that we care for one another.
