The Junction Café and Honey Centre is part of the Nelson Honey & Marketing family. Situated at Kumara, a major junction on the South Island West Coast with roads leading to Canterbury, and North and South Westland, it is a great spot to relax and recharge any time of the day.

The Junction Café offers delicious lunch options like lasagne, seafood chowder, various sandwiches and you really have to try their huge whitebait patties (in season). They also have some of the best muffins and small bites to accompany your morning or afternoon tea.

For the first time ever, this summer season the Junction Café will be open for dinner too and will be fully licensed to serve alcohol. As responsible hosts we also have a courtesy car available to get you home safe.

The Junction Café includes a live beehive display (behind glass) and the full range of Nelson Honey’s bee and natural beauty products.
