A Wonderful Breakfast

We stopped here on the way out of Taupo for breakfast. It really was the yummiest food and incredibly wholesome and healthy. The coffee and tea were very good :)

A group of 5 of us went there for breakfast before the taupo concert.The service was extremely slow we waited close to an hour for our breakfasts which we ordered off the menu, The charge per item off the menu is an expensive way to do it and you end up paying a lot more for the same in other...

went there for breakfast, this took a long time to come and I was very disappointed that it was not very hot, if hot at all, needless to say bacon and eggs on the cold side is not pleasant

We have found it a challenge to find a full vegan meal. Fine Fettle served a large, wonderful vegan breakfast. Yum! Wish there was one at home!

Above average coffee, a nice sweet tart for my husband and a pretty good vegan menu. If they out a bit of effort into redoing their menus they would be much more attractive.

We called in here as it had easy parking and was just on the outer edge of the 'main' drag. We had a great breakfast, muesli parfait and eggs. It all was made with fresh produce and the coffee topped it off to a fantastic breakfast. We were passing through Taupo a couple days later and called in for lunch... More

I don't know what happened. I used to go to this place all the time when I used to work in Taupo so was excited to go and share the experience. The food was completely inedible. We left 90% on our plate after trying to get through it. We both got the vegan breakfast. The bread was dry and hard,... More

My friend and I decided to try breakfast here after hearing good reviews. We were definitely not disappointed. We both ordered a hot chocolate and the yoghurt berry crunch. OMG, it was sooooo good, I didnt want it to end. They cater for gluten free and promote general clean eating. Would most definitely return in the future.
