Was wandering thru town and happened upon this gem. Great food and atmosphere. The small salads are a meal in themselves. I recommend the shrimp salad croissant sandwich. Worked well with my red ale

We ate here several times and enjoyed each visit. The food was so good we just had to come back. The fried green tomato BLT was excellent as was the veggie burger. They also serve a combo of sweet potato and regular fries which are very tasty served together. They have two outdoor dining areas--don't miss the one with the... More

I would recommend this restaurant if you want a casual dining experience without all of the hoopla. Indoor and outside courtyard dining. They have a list of several dinner entrees but we were looking for a lighter dinner so had a couple of their sandwiches. Very good and reasonably priced.

Outside fireplace and a lovely waitress made this an unexpected delight. The menu is limited but what they do have is very well prepared. It was a busy night but everyone was professional, helpful and very accomodating

There's nothing boring about this brunch! A friend and I split a breakfast fish and a lunch dish, huevos rancheros and a curried chicken salad. The huevos rancheros were unusual, as they involved chicken and mole sauce, rather than the traditional chili flavoring; I found them a bit odd, but they were certainly fresh and well prepared. The curried chicken... More

Best patio and salads. The food is always good. Consistency is their best quality. The chili is great! Nice local brews. The service is slow but very nice. Relax and enjoy your time here. You'll want another visit while you're in town.

This restaurant is such a favorite that we had the new in-laws book it for rehearsal dinner!! Great food, nice servers, creative offerings and drop-dead strawberry cake. We love Cafe Karibo. They have so many awesome offerings that we swear we're going to get something new each time; then we order our favorites EVERY SINGLE TRIP!

Make sure you are seated on one of their two beautiful patios. The comfortable and inviting atmosphere adds to the great dining experience. The bucket of fries was the best I've ever tasted. They were perfectly cooked...not greasy at all. I enjoyed the Baja Chicken wrap with a fresh salsa and potato salad on the side. My cousin thoroughly enjoyed... More

Greeted promptly by the hostess as we entered. We dined Saturday evening with no wait even though the dining room was busy. Our server Lindsay was friendly and answered all the questions we had about the menu. Our entrees were served only a few minutes after our salads but all the food was delicious. Flatbread, scallops entree, steak frites, and... More
