Welcome to Our Place in the Prior!


We are ending one chapter in our lives and moving on to a new one.  We had been looking to sell the building we own to fund some major plans we had, but our buyer has their own plans and we will be leaving Arnprior as a result.  We had to wait until now for this to become official.

Thanks for the memories!

We have heard your feedback and made some changes - check out our News page for more details.

We are a family run Bistro Restaurant and Bakery specializing in a Taste of Home...With a Twist.  We are a short drive from Ottawa, Renfrew, Almonte or Carleton Place, located in the heart of downtown Arnprior in our historic 1892 building.

Check out our hours of operation in "Contact Us" - we do adjust our hours seasonally to better serve our customers.

Check out menus for both Lunch, Dinner and special occasion menus.  Reservations are encouraged for dinner, but not required.  We often feature live music at Dinner, so check out upcoming dates in "Events", as well as dates for other special activities that are upcoming.

We occassionally find ourselves in the news and we share that with you under....you guessed it, "News".

We also offer catering for your special location - both on-site special events in our upstairs dining room, or at your location for a buffet of your choice.  Every event we do is unique, so contact us to learn more about how we can help make your next event special.

We offer baking from scratch - from breads to pastries, gluten-free and special occasion items like our Mincemeat at the Christmas holidays.  Contact us to order your bakery needs.  

We hope you will come to make Our Place your place too!
