This place was recommended by someone at our hotel, the range of breakfast options was great, service was friendly and fast and the food was good. Recommended to anyone looking for a good feed.

We went twice whilst we stayed in Taupo, service is hit and miss isn't it. First time was fantastic second was mediocre at best. Food was nice and coffee was very good both times. My friend had the tea which was as she said awesome and perfectly presented. We ordered coffee the first time and got them in small cups,... More

I've visited Piccolo's several times with my daughter and we've loved it every time. We go for lunch and the selection in the glass cabinet makes it so difficult to choose what to have. The food is beautifully served by very friendly staff. I particularly like the layout of the seating which makes it a cosy setting as well as... More

We stayed in taupo for 4 nights and had breakfast every morning at piccolo. We first visited after reading the excellent reviews. Thank you fellow trip advisors. The atmosphere is most inviting with simple yet elegant decor. Staff are very friendly and check up on you regularly. You need to place ur order at the counter initially but the breakfast... More

A good cappuccino . Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. The ginger crunch was fine but you are paying quite a lot for the privilege . I would go back as it has a great ambiance

We were In Taupo for the morning and took the opportunity for brunch at the Piccolo Café. The coffee was excellent & delivered within a few minutes of being seated. The food came shortly afterwards. I have found that in many places your coffee arrives then later your meal by which time your need to get another coffee - not... More

Four of us went for lunch and all chose from the cabinet, where there was a great selection. The roulade and salad was light and tasty, the pie was one of the best my husband has had, the waitress was friendly. The coffee was excellent (Supreme) and was delivered at the end of our meal as requested. The $4 Pinot... More

I went to Piccolo one day for lunch with friends. The place is very nice and I liked the interior decoration. The food is not so cheap but is very good and well presented. The mochaccino was simply awesome. You also have free wifi in the cafè, which is very useful if you are travelling

This is our local stop for coffee and breakfast. Coffee is consistently good and on the go before we walk through the door. Other reviews complain about the price but I have no problems paying a little extra when I know the quality will be the same high standard each time. Friendly and attentive service without being over bearing. The... More
