This is a nice local deli cafe with a great bakery and sandwiches. Pick from a nice selection at the counter and take a table inside or out. We had the Turkish chicken sandwich and recommend it.

Popped in for a quick lunch. Great selection, something different for the whole family. All very wholesome and tasty. Good selection of cakes and slices to take away too!

I really enjoyed my mushrooms and the caramel slice. My wife enjoyed the gluten free chocolate cake. Lovely staff international mix. Nice to see a cheese room. Would go back next time we are in Taupo.

We stopped here for a lite-bite, what we had was good, nice salad served with the quiche I had. It maybe a little overpriced for what it was but it hols up for the quality of the food.

We have eaten here many times, my brother and I had lunch recently and all was good, not sure what others are on about, we had a lovely coffee and great eats! We miss the old Manager Jo though, she was a great asset to the business, lovely to speak to her and hard working! Salute has a relaxing environment,... More
