If you have stopped by Freska recently, you may have noticed a few changes. That’s because the restaurant has a new owner!

Toby Mitchell and his wife Paola took over on March 2nd. They have created a whole new menu and have put a heavy focus on all things local: local ingredients, local beer and supporting the local community. While the name may be the same, the restaurant has been taken to the next level of food, cocktails and atmosphere.

Toby is originally from Arnprior. He spent many years travelling the world and living in the Caribbean where he met Paola. The pair have been in the restaurant and bartending industry for years and bring tons of experience with them to Freska. Paola is the chef and is cooking up some delicious new menu items: the fish tacos are a must try! As Toby says, “all roads lead back home” and they are both very excited to be starting the next chapter of their lives   in Carleton Place.

Stop by Freska to meet the new owners and enjoy the new menu and feel. There is a great selection of breakfast and lunch items including the delicious fresh squeezed orange juice, many different varieties of breakfast bowls, fish tacos and tasty cocktails. With a menu sure to please everyone, Freska is a great choice for flavourful, fresh meals!
