My family and I were on a road trip and decided to stop at Caroline's for breakfast. The food was delicious and the service, friendly. We loved how the tables were set with china like our grandmother's house. There were 7 of us so they served every dish family-style. Really fun! Definitely worth a visit!

A nice spot for lunch! We had The Meadow sandwich and a tuna salad... Both delicious. The service was great and accommodating for dietary needs. The owner is very friendly and thoughtful. Highly recommend a visit.

This place is a total joke.We stopped in for breakfast 2 days ago and all they serve is eggs & meat or pancakes no potatoes ( home fries).Also the glasses are very small and the ice was right outta their own fridge.There was no sign that says cash only either do not waste your time going here.With the way these...

We visited New Castle by accident and while walking up main street came to Caroline's cafe, what a little gem. The food was great, the service was excellent and decor really nice. The owner was very freindly and gaves us the full history of the town.The prices were reasonable for what you got. Even had proper cloth napkins and cups... More

There were 8 of us who stopped in for lunch after touring some of the historic buildings. It was a hot day so the lighter salads were appreciated. The chicken salad was really good-- also the tuna salad and egg salad. Some got the sandwich special, an Italian style BLT and they liked it. The owners are friendly and want... More

This small eatery ( with al fresco dining in good weather ) extends a warm welcome every visit. Everything is fresh and served with a smile! The Italian BLT is fabulous and the homemade chocolate chip cookies superb! A special evening meal is served most Fridays, which calls for reservations. Friendly owners do it all! Recommended!

Great place to be. The owners are a delicious couple and welcome you with great warmth. You go there to get an atmosphere, an ambiance, not a professional cooking, although all products are very good. Sweet terrasse on the street, you just feel at home with some relatives. All neighbours greet the owner as in a small village and you... More

I enjoyed Caroline's to an extent. The owners are the most adorable couple ever and they cook everything from scratch. We went for lunch after walking around Historic New Castle for a while. First issue: While looking over the menu, I asked if they take credit/debit cards. Apparently, they only take cash which is horrible because in Old New Castle,... More

We didn't have much time to eat lunch, as we had a tour in 30 minutes, but the co-owner (aka husband) greeted us in the street and offered us good choices for a quick meal. We had the chicken salad sandwich with chips and pickle, and they were excellent. The special bread's crust was a little tough for one person,... More
