As with people, shops need to know what they are. It has taken me many months of trying to be all things to many people, to realize what Karma really is. We are now sailing forward smoothly and efficiently (thanks to Ann, who always reminds me what needs to be done and is such a wonderful member of the Karma family, along with being a great friend). I also have more time to "breathe", thanks to Jonathan, who does wonders cooking, can follow my recipes and contribute his own; all in a timely manner. So now, we have great service, great food and we know what we are and where we are going. Are you ready for me to tell you?
We are Karma on Third-a great place to have lunch, a light dinner or a snack between the hours of 11-8 (with a break from 3:00-4:30 daily, so I can get ready for dinner, pick my child up, etc), Tuesday through Friday. We are open all day Saturday, starting at 7 am. We are a meeting place for groups, a safe haven for those who need a place to "get away", and a place for the weary to relax and have a cup of tea or coffee. We have an espresso bar and many great pastries and snacks. We support local farmers, coffee roasters, artists, and more. We try and use organic, fresh, local products as much as possible. We love the Mebane Farmers Market and all our local farmers and artisans. We enjoy people of all ages and are a family oriented business. We love music and on Saturday nights we have live entertainment of all sorts-always appropriate for the entire family. We sell all kinds of drinks, including wine and beer (many from local vendors); but we are not a bar. We have never had anyone have too much to drink at Karma (and NEVER will), which is a credit to all our wonderful customers! Everyone is respectful of each other and many people have made friends here (and we have made many friends, too!).
Everyone is welcome and everyone can eat at Karma-I will never turn anyone away that needs a meal.
I know we have had some growing pains and if you ever had an experience that was not completely enjoyable in the past, let me know! We will make it up to you. I can honestly say everyone I have talked to lately has been completely satisfied and I think we are headed to the promised land (or in the right direction!).
So, come to Karma! Be part of our family and you will see-WE KNOW WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE ARE HERE FOR. Karma cannot be all things to all people; but we can bring some good food, music, friendship and a little sunshine into your life! AND..you can always buy a gift in the little gift area (come on! Everyone needs to have little gifts in a cafe.).
Hugs, excuse the errors-one tired baker going to bed!!!
