I went to Karlton Cafe yesterday, and had mixed feelings about the place. To start I had a bad feeling when I saw one of the cooks smoking alongside the place with his buddies. The inside was real nice, especially the main upper floor. The waitress and employees were pleasant and the food was surprisingly great! The prices weren't that bad either. Only critique is this:
Parts of the lower dining area need upgrading, and was too warm down there.. And add a couple traditional, kid friendly, options to the menu.
I would love to see a place like this thrive in our little town.

Never been there. Is the coffee good?

We tried it a couple weekends ago for lunch...nice decor, people were very friendly. A little pricey, but the food was great. Not a lot of options for the kids if we wanted to take them, but for us it good.

On the day we were there, there were pans on the floor collecting water dripping from the ceiling...hopefully a temporary thing. As far as the temperature goes, the lower level was pretty cool...enough that SWMBO had to put a sweatshirt on. Didn't try the coffee...

It's a nice change from the usual Qtown stuff, kinda had that NYC feeling. It' s quieter than a bar like McCoole's, and not cookie-cutter food like the chains.

We'll go back.

That's okay if there's no options for kids. We want urbanized restaurants and eateries that cater to adults.

Never had a bad meal there. Coffee is great, one of the highlights. Right on Broad Street near Moyer Shoes and Rosemaries Ice Cream shop.

Not the cheapest place in town but the food is great and you get what you pay for.

Staff is very friendly, always seems happy to see us.

Been there dozens of times...excellent food!
Espcially the creamed chippd beef...BEST in town or even in the area!

Recommend the fresh squeezed orange juice..but ask for some ice

My only "dislike", service is sometimes "wanting". Great hospitality, but they need to put more attention on checking on your table epecially for drinks.

Kids menu? We just split one meal between two.

Good prices and a pleasant change to the other standard Q-town establishments!!

Actually going this weekend, can't wait

That place was good about 10 years ago, then they cut hours drastically. And yes, I am grossed out by the cooks smoking outside as well. The building is a dump, I don't see myself spending any additional money there.

Love the Karlton Cafe, fantastic home cooked elegant breakfast. I'm pretty sure the "cook" you saw outside smoking is actually the owner...

If someone smoking a cigarette outside is a deal breaker for you? You need to slime back to your sterile little bubble in Saucon Valley.

You've got a negative comment about everything...I have never read anything positive from your pie hole. You climb out of your hole, spew your vile, and slither back in 'til you find normal people having a normal conversation and exchanging their opinions that are in opposition to yours. YOU are the people in this town that give us a bad name...Go F**k yourself and have a good night.

All that because I don't think it's necessary to trash a small business because someone is seen smoking outside ? Well, aren't you the sick little shit? F U & F your night.

Well, when the next thing the cook is going to do is make my food, then yeah, the smoking bothers me. Because I'm fairly sure there will be no hand washing.

And you people who have to complain about kids options. F-the kids. Not every frickin' place is McDonalds. Nothing ruins a nice meal faster than a couple of out of control mouthbreathers. I, for one, like places with no kiddies around.
