The Carlton Hotel features a dining option that is popular among Atascadero locals and visitors alike. The Back Porch Bakery & Café serves up artisanal pastries, soups, salads, and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. 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, cafés, and nearby breweries. 

Serving breakfast and lunch, the Back Porch Bakery & Cafe is well-known and locally loved for its scrumptious artisanal bread and baked goods. Pick up a loaf of fresh Levain bread, order an egg-cellent breakfast dish, or stop in to enjoy a salad and sandwich before heading out for the day. Stop by the bakery on the weekends for french desserts!


From foraged goods to hand crafted pastas, downtown Atascadero is brimming with new and exciting restaurants.
