I had such a good lunch at this place. I wanted to substitute two ingredients with two others and the staff was so flexible and cheerful. The carrot cranberry muffins are delicious and they have free filtered water! My main dish was cooked perfectly and gave me energy for the entire afternoon. Just one more reason to return to Taupo!... More

We only had coffee, double shot was not standard and $5.00 expensive. However, to be fair, the good looked great.

Not your standard bacon and eggs. Many selections for special diets :) Great coffee in a road trip of average coffees.

The only problem is getting a seat. Food and drinks are excellent and staff are great. Food comes out quickly even though the place is packed.

The first day we ordered from the cabinet and was great then the second day we had more time to sit down and order from the menu in which we both ordered the venison burger, one gluten free and one normal and both were amazing! Generally gluten free comes out small, over cooked and bland but clearly the people here... More

We selected this place through Trip Advisor. It was a great breakfast choice. The staff are friendly and provide good service. The coffee was really good. Our breakfast choices were the pancakes with bacon, banana and maple syrup; and the Eggs Benedict wogh bacon. Both were well presented and very enjoyable. Overall, great choice.

We ended up going here a few times during our stay in Taupo. The first trip was a light lunch, which we had from the cabinet selection. The next two visits for breakfast were chosen from the comprehensive and interesting blackboard menu (of which there are all the favorites and some rather exciting variations). All three times the food was... More

Called in on the way to Napier for breakfast. We both had pancakes - arrived with bananas, strawberries, bacon and maple syrup - huge great stack of home-made pancakes - what a delight. Manager/Owner? Steve had a laugh and joke with everyone - exactly the place we were looking for.
