Heading to the Hanmer Springs Fete this November? Stop for a bite to eat and something sweet at Boulder Burgers, Hanmer’s ‘50s-inspired, American-style burger bar in the heart of the recently established Boulder Precinct.
Step back in time and enjoy the ambience of an American diner-style burger bar, complete with good ol’ 1950s cartoons and rock ‘n’ roll courtesy of the Wurlitzer jukebox, or relax in the sun outside with their outdoor furniture and a stunning view of the surrounding hills.
Burger buns (fresh from Hanmer Bakery daily) are loaded with all the gourmet goodness; fresh meat patties made by hand, house-made mayonnaise, relishes and other tasty condiments, salad and more. Take the Big Boulder for example; a mouthwatering combination of double beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, beetroot, red onion, pickles, aioli and tomato jam.
Or how about the Boulder Brunch – bacon, hash brown, avocado, free range egg, lettuce, aioli and tomato jam… it’s sure to get your taste buds tingling.
Room for more? Be tempted by their delicious loaded dog or loaded fries – smothered with bacon, cheese sauce, sweet chilli and sour cream, they’re the ultimate foodie favourite.
Finish off with a sweet treat – you’ll be spoilt for choice with their impressive range of delightfully devourable sundaes, shakes, splits and floats.

The ultimate 1950’s Americana experience is coming to Hanmer, so get ready for a blast of retro culture and a menu bursting with classic diner staples.
The eagerly-awaited Boulder Burger Bar at the Boulder Precinct – Hanmer Springs’ newest café and retail shopping precinct – will open its doors in mid-December.
It’s the latest venture by Peter and Cherie, who have owned and operated Hanmer Bakery since 2005 and will now turn their hands to create the ultimate burger experience. Kitted out in a stunningly authentic design, you’ll be able to sit at a booth while listening to the jukebox, as you peruse a tantalising menu, showcasing both New Zealand and American influences that combine old favourites with new delights.
A major drawcard is expected to be the customised soft-baked burger buns, complete with fresh hand-made meat patties. All the sauces, chutneys and hot fudge sauce will be made inhouse. Boulder Burgers will be open daily from 11am, serving fast takeaway burgers, fries, American hotdogs, sundaes, shakes and floats. Keep an eye on the specials board which will be changing regularly to include seasonal and seafood options.
The possibilities are endless, and you can guarantee Peter and Cherie will work hard to keep new ideas coming. So, come tap out a tune on the Wurlitzer, or step back in time to marvel at the 1950’s cartoons that decorate the premises.
The team can’t wait to create your perfect burger soon.
