Karen’s Bakery is quite simply the best bakery I have ever experienced. Situated in old town Folsom, near the shores of Lake Natoma, this is a must do for pastries, breakfast, and lunch. Beware, closed on Sundays.

I've had several pastries and love their chocolate cakes! Any celebration- we are there. It is always busy but we manage to find tables. Breakfast choices are plenty.
