Lunch Hangouts in Carleton Place
These are some of my quick favourite lunch hangouts.
I just did the July “buy a lunch” at a local business in Carleton Place. Every Friday, I purchased a gift certificate for the winner. I hope if you didn’t win you still went and checked out the different places, checked out their Facebook pages and sent lots of love. These and so many more businesses need support now more than ever. What these businesses and many more had to do in order to follow all the guidelines from Health Authorities and maintain their business is incredible.
Under Pressure Coffee House
Opened since 2016, Cara has made this space a welcoming gem in Carleton Place. They are tucked away in the Mew Mall on Lansdowne Ave. There is always lots of parking. Cara and her team serve lunch, gourmet desserts, coffee, tea and my daughter’s favourite milkshakes. Free wifi makes this a perfect spot for business coffees or even a date day. ?
News article when they first opened.
Winner of the Excellence in Customer Service award by the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce in 2017 and people choice award in 2019, Moe and his team are consistently a local favourite. They are located on Bridge Street in Carleton Place. Make sure you are hungry when you go as they are super generous with their portions.

Olde Town Bakery
So, I know I moved here in 2007 and the Olde Towne Bakery was here then and maybe someone knows how long they have been in business. If you haven’t had a chance to stop into this bakery shop on Lake Ave for lunch, desserts, quiche, or to pick up some homemade bread make sure to add it to your list. I’m getting hungry writing this.
Why not take the opportunity to do some exploring in your own backyard in this warm weather. Taste Blooms opened up at 5 Allan St in June and are getting rave reviews for their French pastries, custom cakes, pies and cupcakes. I have seen several posts on Facebook with their creations and positive comments. To read more about Taste Blooms check out this new article.
Go ahead and treat yourself to lunch in Carleton Place or grab a coffee or a milkshake at one of these hot spots. ☕️
