Enjoyed a nice breakfast to start the day in Taupo. Has a small kids menu, which is nice, for about $12 you get eggs, meat and potato. Pancakes were very tasty, served in warm bananas and some ham. Would get it again. Decent service, bring food to you after ordering at the counter. Not the largest spot but we were... More

Location is excellent, just opposite the i-site. Ample parking around the area. Place was crowded when we visited, we had to wait quite awhile for our coffees and the food was not really cheap. There are probably better places to go in Taupo for breakfast or brunch.

Went here while passing through. It has a great selection of food. I had the all day breakfast which was huge and extremely tasty. My partner had the French toast and she could not fault it. Good portions too. Neither of us required anything else afterwards. Definitely recommended to anyone eating in Taupo. Morning afternoon evening.

Key message first: I have found a new favourite breakfast place in Taupo! These guys and their food are amazing. Good coffee, great choice of cabinet food, and an extensive range of blackboard meals with both fresh choices and an extensive selection of cooked breakfast options. I went for one of their cooked breakfasts with a Mexican touch. The team... More

Have been here a few times and the food and coffee has always been great! The last few times I have been really disappointed with customer service. Yesterday I was in town visiting family and I stood at the counter for awhile and none of the staff acknowledged I was there, when someone finally served me there was no 'hi',... More
