Cocktails at Culburra’s The Little Snapper

The Little Snapper

Located on the South Coast of New South Wales, Culburra Beach is a relaxed coastal town surrounded by water. You don’t have to travel far for lake, river or ocean views, offering opportunity for many activities on the water such as surfing, fishing, jet skiing and stand up paddle boarding. Culburra Beach has grown over the years, with arguably the most popular new arrivals being Woolworths and The Little Snapper, formerly known as OP Bakehouse. 

The Little Snapper moved just around the corner from Orient Point, where it was known as OP Bakehouse. There was always something missing before The Little Snapper came to town, a cocktail bar! It is owned by Scott and Tobie Mason, locals since 2013. Head chef Scott has over 28 years of fine dining experience, including his roles at Bistro Moncur and Bambini Trust Restaurant & Wine Room in Sydney. If sweet treats are more your style, Tobie has got you covered with her delicious baked goods, cronuts being the local favourite.  


Recently, The Little Snapper have added a new menu dedicated to… burgers! From fish burgers, to cheeseburgers, to southern fried chicken burgers, your mouth will be watering before you even taste them. Don’t worry vegans, there is something for you too involving a housemade lentil patty, lettuce, tomato, spiced eggplant kasundi and hummus. And you can’t have a burger without fries, right? Right. Luckily there are plenty of options including signature chips, potato wedges and our personal favourite, kebab shop chips loaded with garlic yoghurt, lettuce, tomato and spring onions. If you don’t like burgers, there are a few other delicious options available, such as the greek goddess salad or the battered fish and chips. 

Are you a dessert lover? If so, you have the choice between Raspberry Sorbet, Vanilla Panna Cotta or a dish involving salted caramel gelato, choc fudge sauce, Golden Gaytime crumb and a waffle cone. Need I say more? The Little Snapper also likes to keep it interesting, with new and updated food and drinks menus. 


The Little Snapper is known and loved by locals and visitors alike for its delicious range of cocktails. From classic favourites such as the Mojito and Espresso Martini, to delicious dessert cocktails including the Salted Caramel Dream, there are plenty of options for everyone. The Little Snapper have also named one of their drinks after a local beach, the Main Beach Margarita is a mixture of Tequila, Triple Sec, Fresh Lime and Lemon.

If you’re after a different alcoholic beverage, there is a wide selection of local and classic beer and wines to choose from. Are you the designated driver? Don’t worry, you don’t have to miss out. The Little Snapper has 2 yummy mocktails to choose from including the Mock Mojito and Ginger Refresher.
