lovely lovely coffee and food

we were advised to go there by locals and can understand why. the cabinet food was extensive and had some good choices but we had breakfast off the menu - if you like macadamia nuts, you must try the macadamia muesli! very generous serving of scrambled eggs on 5 grain bread had me full for the day... read more

Scrumptious breakfasts, yummy morning teas. Body Fuel reliable as ever, we always visit during Ironman week. My only problem is that there is too much choice of yummy things to choose from!

I have stopped in a few times and the food is always nice but I often have to wait too long. Last time we stopped in, we got two drinks and a few snacks out of the pre-made window. We still waited for almost 20 minutes even though they simply needed to place it in a bag. We walked away... More

This was THE place for breakfast for visitors and competitors in Taupo for the Ironman weekend. My wife & I went twice and the busyness of the place was a reflection on the quality of the coffee, the food and the service. Staff each had their delegated roles and everything was so well organised (or appeared to be) and the... More

we ate here a couple of times for lunch while staying in taupo. It is very busy at times and there may be a bit of a wait but both times the food was excellent .

Finally a place that serves breakfasts that are actually big! Food exceeded our expectations. We ate here on two separate occasions and everything was absolutely delicious. Left BodyFuel feeling completely satisfied. Absolutely fantastic service, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and food came out quickly considering how busy they were. If I'm ever in Taupo again I'll definitely be back.

We came across this gem of a place whilst looking for somewhere to eat lunch. It was very busy, and we did have a bit of a wait, but OMG, it was so worth it. All 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, which were of a good size and presented well. I had the best salad I can honestly... More

Today was AK Anniversary Monday, they were busy but I suspect they generally are..we still enjoyed prompt service and great food. The young ladies working the... More

This is a good place to grab a bite to eat. People are very nice, but the extra charges for everything is extreme. Never seen or heard someone get charged for and extra set of cuttlery before.
