Great service, great food, fantastic coffee (though a change in barista on the last day of 4 slightly burnt the coffee) Tried 4 different breakfasts over 4 days and would recommend all of them.

Absolutely yum. Would definitely go back. Pork belly eggs bedidict and the grill. The smoothies are the nicest I have ever tried. Liked the bio cups too.

Restaurant Name: Bodyfuel Cafe Location: 127 Tongariro Street, Taupo Date: 30th May 2014 (Brunch) Food Type: Breakfast/Brunch _______________________________________ Décor: (8.0/10) The café lacks that all-encompassing radiant lighting we see in most modern cafés, and it does look worn down in parts. But I'd like to think that worn look is reminiscent of a much loved piece of clothing. Atmosphere: (7.0/10)... More

Bodyfuel do a great breakfast with organic food. It is tasty and there's plenty of it. The price is not cheap but it is realistic. We ate there both mornings when we were in Taupo and the breakfast was nicer and cheaper and better quality than the resort breakfast where we had previously stayed

I arrived on the Naked bus from Auckland to meet friends on a Friday in May. We were quite hungry and went into Bodyfuel for lunch. This was my first experience of food in New Zealand (other than a drink before leaving the airport). I orderd a Chicken Satay salad and a berry smoothie. I didn't know what to expect... More

Just by chance called in for lunch about 1.30pm. A little bit cramped as only a small place. All the tables are very close together. I got a table while my husband looked at the order then we swapped otherwise we wouldn't have got one. Coffee was as we like. Thai soup was very tasty with the hint of coconut... More

The food and coffee was okay, but the staff were not a good experience. We came to have a cosy afternoon in a good cafe - it closed at 15.30 on a wednesday and the atmosphere was not pleasent at all - not at all like European cafes anyway. When we noticed that there was no soap in the toilets,... More

This place has an atmosphere different for most places - I don't know what it is but its different in a good way. The food selection and quality is good, the staff are friendly but they don't know what a spicy chai is - you get a sweet one.

The food was fantastic and well priced. The French toast with compote was scrumptious - had it 2 days in a row and yummy both days. All the breakfasts looked equally yummy and had good serving sizes.
