Carol's has such a warm and friendly atmosphere, great food and friendly service. We visited as an extended family and it was great for all of us. Tough to decide what to order as everything on the menu is great! We went from Monte Christo sandwiches to salads to fish - all yum! We have never been unhappy here and... More

That includes the Strawberry Jelly & marshmallows for the hot chocolate!. They make Novia Scotia rolls fresh daily. We shared a Garden Omelett with pancakes. Hot, fresh, & cheesy. Pancakes were oh so tender & eaten with homemade strawberry jam was the best! We were part of a large group, had no problem with everyone getting their food roughly at... More

I had one of the best Oriental Chicken salads ever. The portion was perfect for lunch and arranged attractively with Mandarin oranges decorated with poppy seeds around the salad. It was served with a delicious whole wheat roll and butter. After lunch we visited the very cute and nicely arranged Vintage Rose gift shop.

Breakfast at Carols is awesome! Get there early for their homemade caramel rolls as big as a salad plate! All food is homemade and tastes like grandma's cooking! One of my favorite places for comfort food. Spend time in the gift store, too!

Just down the road from our home and a local favorite for sure. The theme or feel of the menu reflects meals mom would make ie.. mashed potatoes n turkey dinner, meatloaf, ect. Very good quality. Desserts are all made in house and very very good.

We stopped in for an early dinner and we were seated quickly even though the place was busy. I had the Coconut Chicken Salad and my husband had a House Burger with Cheddar Cheese and Bacon along with Onion Rings.Everything was great! I had a cup of Hamburger Vegetable Soup. Their soups are amazing!!

Went to breakfast on a weekday morning. We were seated immediately and our server was ready to take our order quickly. As three "senior citizens" we appreciated the senior menu and prices. We wanted to talk amongst the three of us, and our seating was conducive to that until we were almost ready to leave. Then, a loud party was... More

Carol's was a very nice place, light and clean. I had the Hot Turkey Sandwich and it was very good. My daughter had a Salad and liked it too. They have a large menu and the desserts looked wonderful. I was wishing I'd ordered one to go. Will definitely go again.
