It is what it is. It's a truck-stop diner. It's open 24 hrs. So don't expect cafe quality food or flat whites. My wife and I went for breakfast after some home DIY. We had make-your-own coffee's and eggs on toast ($28). My scrambled eggs was very yummy. A huge dollop with 3 pieces of toast that were saturated with... More

If you are desperate and falling down with hunger, drive on. This is not food. It looks like food at first glance but everything is the cheapest of the cheap. Plain brand bread, spaghetti, hash browns. The tomato sauce is pale red gelatinous sugar syrup. The coffee is plain pack granules with hot water and plastic spoons. There was no... More

Just off the main Napier- Taupo highway and close to De Bretts spa resort..

Prices are reasonable and the portions are generous and served with a... More

Great truck stop diner. Good value for money and great food. Large meals and good coffee. Good parking and if you are into trucks, there are usually some in the big park. Not far off the main road. Cheers

Food was of average quality, sausages although large were not nice. Presentation was very basic and my latte was a cup of warm milk. For the same price we ate in Taupo central next day and got far far superior food and service. Charging less might give people more realistic expectations.

Ordered rump steak. Came with pile chips that took half the plate, plus x2 fried eggs balanced on top, no salad. For the price I paid, wasn't worth going out of my way going there. Better value somewhere else in taupo.
