Despite the Karen being a modern contemporary social marker, the diner has a more 1950s vibe. Waitresses don pink frilly uniforms under neon lights surrounded by MCM-influenced decor.

As for what’s on the menu… KARMA. Basically, you’ll get served what you deserve at Karen’s Diner. That means your choice of a beef, chicken, or veggie burger. Each burger comes with fries and soda but don’t expect the waitresses to be nice when asking for dietary requirements.

Keep in mind, you can’t just walk into this pop-up, you do need to book ahead of time, or face the wrath of the Karen’s.  What’s more, it’s only happening for a short time so be sure to book time off in your calendar.
