Little Bit O’ Soul in Carleton Place -The Ginger Cafe “Magnifies”!

Food for the body is not enough– there just has to be food for the soul. Anyone eating at The Ginger Cafe  should not feel at all shortchanged by the fact that it’s vegan or vegetarian. Everything is so tasty, that it should overcome any philosophical objections that any carnivore might have.






The Ginger Cafe has just “expanded its waistline” at the historical train station in Carleton Place on Coleman Street. It has become bigger and better, but has not lost the home cooked food feel. Their main courses are still served buffet style in the new addition, but it is still that great comfy place to meet friends for a snack or meal.



I need you beside me…



Have you tried their summer rolls,  or are you looking for some amazing home baked treats? Their pecan butter tarts are filled to the brim and they are still the place to go for gluten free choices. It’s wholesome, imaginative and delicious and the Raspberry/White Chocolate Cheesecake is a little piece of paradise.

You can sit on among the plush cushions and enjoy your food, or they can also pack up anything to go. Ginger Cafe is well worth adding to your list of places to stop at– and remember–part of the success to life is to what you like– The Ginger Cafe in Carleton Place.


Don’t forget to see them Saturdays at the Carleton Place Farmers Market! The first friday of each month is indian buffet day and see their new mini market!
