A solid performer.

I always seem to end up at Replete, despite best efforts to try somewhere new! Plenty of cabinet food, consistently good coffee and something to tempt most on the menu (no scones though, and I'm a scone-a-holic!).

Delicious healthy, fresh food, with lots of variety all well presented. Great spot to sit in the sunshine and enjoy. Friendly and helpful staff.

This is our favourite stop when passing through Taupo. Great food and great service. Very dog friendly with bowls of water offered for K9s served by the staff to your outside table. Impressed by the kids cheerios and kids lunch pack. The adults food (eggs and bacon, satay chicken salad) was just as good. Based on previous experience, if your... More

My wife and I ate breakfast at Replete twice in the 6 days we were in Taupo in early March 2015. My wife and I absolutely loved the muesli. We'd get eggs and/or pancakes to go with it. My wife is a vegetarian, so she had a nice selection. This appears to be a pretty trendy hangout based on its... More

We enjoyed the food so much that we ended up visiting twice for brunch/coffee over our two day Lake Taupo stay. Everything was healthy and very delicious - especially good for vegetarians, as even the basic salads were full of flavour with yummy dressings. Would definitely recommend as lovely, relaxed spot to pull up a window seat and watch the... 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.

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 7:30/8:00 so is a good place to grab something.... More

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.
