route 6 cafe Welcome to Route 6

Nestled in Lumsden, the hub of Northern Southland, you will find our modern 1950's themed Americana Cafe with a Kiwiana touch!

Atmosphere, class, great food and good old Southern Hospitality, we have it all! As we like to say it, "This is as Lumsden as it gets!"

We have become famous for our great burgers, our coffees that taste how coffee should, and the all round fantastic experience that you will encounter at our place!

Authentic Booths made in USA!

logoWhen selecting our furniture for our cafe we had strict criteria. Firstly was comfort and secondly was a wow factor. Why not get the originals we thought, so we set ourselves up with authentic USA booths and stools!

Real Car Bar, with Quane Surfboard!

logoOur icon is this great old girl. A 1955 Dodge Kingsway has found her new home inside our cafe. She underwent a delicate restoration process and has become a real talking point. Try and work out how we got it inside!

Awesome Sunny Outdoor Area!

logoCome and sit back and relax on one of Lumsden's many sunny days. Our outdoor area is nice and sheltered and our locally made outdoor tables bring thier own unique sense of class.

Find us on the Main St

logoWe are easy to find on the main street of Lumsden, just look for the old Pop on the roof! We are in the old BNZ building with its great 1950s styling.

Plenty of Gluten Free Options

logoWe know how hard it is to find decent Gluten Free food when out and about. This is not the case at Route 6.

Our famous Burgers are available Gluten Free, as are our Pizzas and we also have a great range in our cabinet and menu as well.
