The newest venue on the mountain, First Run Cafe & Bar opened ahead of the 2020 winter in the Lawlers Apartments complex. You'll find plenty of baked goods and locally roasted coffee here and on weekends they're open for dinner.   

Located just above the Corral Car Park at 35/4 Lawlers Court, First Run Café & Bar is a great place for a snack during your visit to Hotham. You can grab anything from pies and pasties to toasted sandwiches and croissants along with a selection of cakes and slices and locally roasted Mt Coffee.

Having a picnic? First Run has you sorted with smoked salmon and an array of cheeses available too. You can also place weekly orders for amazing Harrietville Bakery bread.  

First Run is open for dinner on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights with pizzas, several venison dishes, local trout and vegan options all on the menu.

First Run Cafe & Bar is open Friday to Monday.
