Went for breakfast and wasn't disappointed. Eggs Benedict with mustard sauce was devine. Coffee delicious too. Also really nice to mooch around the mosaic garden & shop afterwards.

Mosaic garden is a sight to behold,even before you get into the cafe. Look for the hammerhead shark! My butter chicken pie was very tasty, and the service from the young lad on school holidays was impeccable! Thanks team!

Above Acacia Bay and up a mosaiced entrance this cafe is worth a visit if only to admire the mosaics and artwork adorning the outside area and up to the adjoining little craft shop. A popular spot with parking tho this can be problematical at peak times in Summer. Great coffee and interesting assortment of food.

Lovely quiet café in a nice country setting, not far from Taupo. Loved the slightly different spin on the classic Egg's Benedict. Nice place to visit.

Well, we went here twice and both times we had a great experience. The first time NO ONE was there and the second time EVERYONE was there, and honestly we got the same amount of awesome, personalized attention both times!

This is a really funky little cafe with artwork and handcraft spread out all over the garden. There's a lot to see so make sure you have time :) Food is really great and staff very friendly. Need a car to get here as it is a small drive from Taupo town center but really worth it!!

A must place to visit while in Taupo. The Art is a little different and quite spectacular. The coffee is extremely good and our food was first class. It is on our list to visit here whenever we are in Taupo. The breakfasts are excellent as well.
