Four of us had lunch at The Horse Radish will on a wine tasting visit to the area. All of us enjoyed our food and the casual, friendly atmosphere of the cafe. A nice place for lunch between tastings!

This is a very informal place that pays great attention to their food. They focus on local sourcing. Staff are amenable to customizing sandwiches for individual dietary needs/tastes. For us, a generous bowl of soup or a half sandwich/soup or salad provided a very satisfying lunch. We also appreciated that it is also relatively quiet, perhaps because it appears to... More

The Horse Radish serves great sandwiches in the heart of Carlton. They are very generous portions and very tasty. The service was good and the staff was very friendly. A must try when in Carlton.

We enjoyed both a lunch and dinner here on our Saturday night in Carlton. The lunch menu was varied with good but not excessive servings, enough to be filling but not enough to make you feel stuffed! Saturday night dinner was fun as there was live music with a great family of musicians/singers. The dinner menu had similar items to... More

They have great food and music. We shared a custom cheese plate and veggie sandwich. The veggie sandwich was one of the best I have ever had. There was live music also and wine tastings. Highly recommend. Great staff.

Stopped in here after visiting a nearby winery. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food (half of the 'Carlton' sandwich and a house salad with goat cheese and dried cranberries) were both delicious. The glass of red wine I was served was a bit too warm but other than that, everything was perfect. Recommended for lunch!

The wait staff is friendly and helpful. My sandwiches (Reuben, and a hamburger) were prepared well and tasty. Nothing extraordinary, but very suitable for a lunchtime visit. Location is great and music on the weekends!

Stopped here as part of a wine country your. Local fresh produce incorporated throughout the menu. The lunch was excellent. Soup/salad/sandwich combos were all really good and well priced (approx $10).
