Delectable Downtown Dining

The Carlton Hotel features two delectable dining options that are popular among Atascadero locals and visitors alike. The Back Porch Bakery & Cafe serves up artisanal pastries, soups, salads and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, while The Nautical Cowboy is open daily with everything from fine wine and porterhouse steaks to burgers and beer. If you’re in the mood to adventure out of the hotel, there are several great places to drink and dine, all within walking distance of our hotel. Our friendly front desk staff is happy to point you in the right direction of our favorite food trucks, cafes, and nearby breweries.
