Tried this place out based on other TripAdvisor reviews and I wasn't disappointed. It's a charming older building with great ambiance. Both my friend and I are gluten-free dairy-free eaters - we found delightful choices on the menu. We shared a kale & quinoa salad with citrus dressing that was an excellent blend of bitter and sweet. And then we... More

Nice quaint place with very good food, but a bit pricey. The Mac & Cheese was very tasty. Fish tacos good but small portion. Cocktails are good but very high priced

Had lunch with my husband on a Saturday afternoon. I ordered the fish tacos, and he had the smoked salmon sandwich. Both were excellent and portions were large. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed a Sunday Brunch at Karla's: Eggs Benedict, French Toast w/ Bananas Foster, Bloody Marys. Great food and drinks, enjoyed by the two of us. Prices were a little high, but probably on par with New Hope restaurants. The building needs some updating - not exactly a place to go for a high-end "date night" dinner, but good for eating...

We came to New Hope to spent in such a nice day and this restaurant we picked by reviews. We weren't disappointed. Fresh food well made delisious food. We took French onion soup, Calamari and hot wings. Calamari had unusual hot sauce, instead of traditional marinara. French onion was made just perfect. Love and highly recommend for lunch!

Karla's has been a fixture in New a Hope since the 1970's. Good solid food and drink and good cheer is how they do it. I had my 40th birthday dinner here and I still enjoy the food and the atmosphere at Karla's over twenty years later!

Good lunch meal. I had tilapia taco. It was listed on the menu as blackened. I asked the waiter if I could get it not spicy.. It came out tasty and delicious. The service was attentive and prices were good.
