Simple done beautifully


The philosophy at Culverden’s Red Post Café is all about simple food cooked beautifully.

 

Locals keep coming back to enjoy the quality coffee and delicious menu options, all set amongst the picturesque country villa surroundings.

For more than 12 years, a long-time favourite dish has been the Salmon Souffle, a secret recipe that contains only salmon, spinach, potato, cream cheese, eggs and lemon.

The gluten-free meal makes a light and tasty dish served with salad.

Another popular item is the coated and pan-fried Blue Cod, which is also presented alongside salad and either fries or mash.

Belgian Waffles – introduced to the breakfast menu last year – is also following the other items as a real fan favourite.

The waffles are delicately toasted and served with grilled bacon, blueberries and drizzled with maple syrup.

Red Post Café, located at 2 Highfield St, is open Monday to Thursday from 8am to 4:30pm, Fridays 8am to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 5:30pm.

The menu caters for children and those with both vegetarian and gluten-free diets.

They can also host special occasions and functions, or provide catering platters so you can enjoy Red Post Café’s delicious fare at your venue of choice.

A special northern stop: Red Post Cafe


Winter is well and truly here and a trip to Maruia Springs Thermal Resort or Hanmer Springs to thaw out in the hot pools wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t stop at the Red Post Café to sit by the open fire for a barista-made coffee or sample some hot winter fare like a cottage pie, a bowl of fresh seafood chowder or some fish pie.

 

 

With friendly, efficient service you can relax in the warm ambience that is Red Post Café. Settling in to eat you may see the odd car club event that makes Red Post a regular stop because they’ve come to appreciate the venue for what it is: great food in a great environment.

They are ready and waiting to host groups, but make sure you let them know you’re on your way, especially if you’re after the blue cod or Southland cheese rolls, because these beauties sell fast. With a cabinet full of fresh treats for the weary traveller, there will be something for everyone, including gluten free and vegetarian options.
