KARL’S IS A FRIENDLY SPOT SERVING UP WHAT YOU’RE IN THE MOOD FOR, AS LONG AS IT’S ON THE MENU.
Come for breakfast. Catch up at lunch. Grab dinner and drinks. See a show. Stay until it’s time to go.
Located on the second floor of The Siren Hotel in downtown Detroit, Karl’s is owned by Chef Kate Williams and operated alongside her talented hospitality team. Karl’s takes inspiration from Chef Kate’s great-great-grandparents Anton and Elizabeth Karl, and the bakery they once owned on the East Side of Detroit. Family legend has it that Elizabeth’s generosity put them out of business. When customers couldn’t pay, Elizabeth snuck loaves out the back door, free of charge.
Chef Kate brings most of this spirit to Karl’s, along with the sense of care, style, and originality that attracted nationwide praise—including the James Beard Foundation, New York Times, Food & Wine, GQ, and Esquire—to her first restaurant, Lady of the House. So come on in and see for yourself. We can’t wait to have you at Karl’s.
