Lochmara Cafe is a fully licensed café and restaurant, open 7 days for breakfast (8am -10.45am), lunch (11.30am - 3pm), dinner (from 6pm) and all day coffee, home baking and snacks and a range of local wines, beers and juices.

The cuisine is based on seasonal Marlborough flavours, reflecting the regional specialties from sea and land.

Our menus emphasise sustainability. Where possible our meat and seafood are organic or local and fresh produce is sourced locally and seasonally. We also grow salad, herbs and some vegetables and fruit on site at Lochmara Lodge, in our garden and orchard, as well as harvesting eggs from our free range and very happy chickens.

Our drinks menu showcases wines from Marlborough and throughout New Zealand, as well as boutique craft beers. We have a reputation for the best coffee in the Sounds, and there is fresh baking from our kitchen for morning and afternoon tea - at any time!

In the cooler Autumn and Spring months we have the log fire going in the evenings.

There are no cooking facilities available at Lochmara, so all in-house guests are fully catered for at our licensed café and restaurant.

For dinner bookings please phone or email [email protected] No bookings required for breakfast or lunch (unless you are a large group).
