Karl’s: A Modern Twist on Beloved Small Town Diners

Intrigued by a claim to be “serving up what you’re in the mood for, as long as it’s on the menu,” we headed to the Siren for a taste of Karl’s friendly hospitality.

I randomly stumbled across Karl’s Instagram the day before they officially opened up shop on the second floor of The Siren Hotel in downtown Detroit. I was immediately pulled in by the old school diner feel, something that felt so Midwest and reminded me of places I visited as a kid in rural northern Michigan.

Intrigued by a claim to be “serving up what you’re in the mood for, as long as it’s on the menu,” we headed to the Siren for a taste of Karl’s friendly hospitality.

Karl’s is owned by Chef Kate Williams, of Lady of the House, and takes inspiration from her great-great-grandparents who once owned a bakery on the east side of Detroit. With a friendly, hometown atmosphere, the Karl’s serves up some good ‘ol comfort food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner including a breakfast omelettes, crab dip casserole, steak and eggs, spaghetti and meatballs, Maurice salad, and lots of bakery items. There’s even the added surprise of a cookie, Danish, and grilled cheese of the day to keep things interesting.

Karl’s menu also boasts “The Best Chicken Salad Around,” which I might add is definitely worth trying!

So whether your looking for a quiet place for breakfast, a home cooked lunch or dinner, or a fun place for drinks with friends, Karl’s definitely has exactly what you’re in the mood for.
