Karen’s Diner is coming to Toronto for a limited pop-up experience starting April 22, 2023 at Shoeless Joe’s (1980 St. Claire Ave. W, Toronto).

The diner is home to great burgers and rude service, and currently has multiple locations across Australia and the UK, with big plans to expand into the United States and Canada in 2023, following the successful opening of the first North American location in St. Louis.

Customers can expect plenty of sass, great food, and a hefty sprinkle of bad attitude. As Karen’s Diner goes, the food is great and the service ungrateful, but your experience will be unforgettable. Don’t expect special treatment at this diner because it’s all about Karen, and she won’t be taking any of your nonsense!

Go have some fun and wind the staff up to unleash your inner Karen, and see their full Karen potential. Let your server know if your real name is Karen (who knows if this is a good thing or not). and for the love of Karen don’t ask to speak to the manager. Whatever you do, don’t ask for a refund!

Vegetarians, vegans, other annoying dietary requirements, and non alcoholics will all be catered for, but don’t expect Karen to be happy about it. Check out these guidelines before joining the mayhem.

Tickets include a burger, fries and soda. You will get the full and authentic Karen experience with games and a fun, hilarious waitstaff. This is a dining experience like no other – literally. Other confirmed Canadian cities include Victoria and Calgary. Follow Instagram for more updates.
