karen klassenIn 2003, Karen Klassen started Spoons Cafe, in Historic Downtown McKinney Texas, with the actual ovens out of her house. She had no restaurant experience, but had a vision of a casual spot to grab a cup of coffee, a great breakfast or lunch. A place that was comfortable and relaxed with a vibe of being part of the community.

In 2007 Spoons Cafe moved to its current home on the downtown square, in what was originally the Texas Power and Light company building.

In 2018 Karen opened The Garage a craft cocktail bar that serves Spoons full menu as well as a specially created small bite menu. The Garage is located directly behind the cafe in what was the actual garage for the power company.

Spoons Cafe and The Garage are open 7 days a week serving breakfast, all day, lunch, dinner and has gone from 4 employees to over 40. Karen’s first employee is still with her and is responsible for all of the amazing bakery goods the cafe has become known for and many of her employee’s have been with her for 10 plus years.
