Enjoy great food and good times at Postmasters Cottage Café, one of Arrowtown's most picturesque venues.

The historic cottage, now lovingly restored as a café, was once home to the town's postmasters and has been a main street feature since the 1860s.  Its old-world charm, complete with horse-hitching post, picket fence, beautiful gardens and hanging wisteria, has made it one of Arrowtown’s most photographed buildings.

With prime views of the historic main street and iconic hillsides, a cosy interior inspired by early settler days, and sunny outdoor verandahs and courtyard perfect for al fresco dining, Postmasters is a popular spot for couples, families and groups to relax and catch up over a drink or a meal. 

Led by owners Sam Laycock and Maria Kealy, the team is renowned for its warm hospitality, selection of local and New Zealand offerings, and a fresh locally sourced menu catering to a wide range of dietaries including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and kids’ options.

Postmasters is an ideal venue in any season for boutique private functions - be it an intimate wedding, birthday celebration, business meeting/get-together or touring group stop.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and all-day coffee and cake 5 days a week, 9am – 4pm, with the addition of candlelight evening dining on Fridays and Saturdays.  Closed Tues and Wed.
