Quality Option but Not Cheap

In general, breakfast seems to be particularly expensive in NZ for what is typically offered. They had a great selection of breakfast items as well as sandwiches, quiches, meat pies, salads, etc. for lunch. Easy place to pick up something early for a picnic out. Not many places are open at... read more

we visited replete twice whilst staying in Taupo. Food was great, as was the service. As a vegetarian, it was nice to see a good variety of things on offer that I was able to eat! Good veggie food was hard to come by during my time travelling NZ. The cafe is trendy and the shop sells some unique things... More

Four of us travelling from Rotorua to Wellington stopped off in Taupo for a bite. We found Replete. All of us enjoyed our meals immensely. Very friendly polite staff. the cafe was very busy but we did not have to wait long for our meals.

Thank you for your review regarding your dining experience at Replete. We do however wish to clarify the pricing of our food. The bagel with salmon and cream cheese (an option from our cabinet) is in fact only NZ$8.50 and the Hotcakes with Honeycomb, Bacon & Banana is NZ$14.50. Our opening hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm weekdays and 8:00am –... More

This place is fabulous. Brilliant food and service. Could do with a few extra tables especially when cold and wet but otherwise it never lets us down.

Fresh foods in the case made that day or a nice variety to choose from on the wall. My husband and I had a tasty experience here for lunch. The store next door sells some of their items so fun to walk thru. My latte was perfect. Smooth and perfect. Stop by!

the ambience is casual, fun and friendly. We enjoyed a DELICIOUS chicken sandwich and a great dessert. It's definitely an enjoyable stop.
