Can't say as I'm sorry to see the Karma Cafe go. The food was mediocre and completely inconsistent.
First time I dined at Karma Cafe, their burger was fresh, thick, hand-patted, and delicious. Next time I went there it was a pre-formed pre-frozen thin hockey puck, like you get in a school cafeteria. When I complained, some angry hippie came out and insisted that it was same kind of burger they'd always served since day one. Which was a blatant lie.
I gave them a third chance, many months later. The food was slightly better this time, but the service was atrocious and everyone in the place seemed in some sort of a dull stupor, moving sluggishly and acting like their minds were a million miles away. Far out, man. Outasite. Dude.
Interestingly, a sign still on the bulletin board at the nearby Highland Grounds coffee shop advertises a "National Dream Awareness Weekend" event in the former Karma Cafe building, but neglects to provide a crucial datum: the time and date of said event.
