Good coffee, super cooked food and a counter packed with lots of fresh sweet and savoury things to chose from. There is generally a buzz, and the staff smile a lot. Well worth a look.

We are local and called in for cabinet food and coffees. Things didnt start well when the older women serving us asked someone else at the counter if she was being served even though she had already been served and had actually pushed in in front of us. A bird then flew into the cabinet and trotted around on sandwiches... More

Finally a cafe that appreciates their customers I visited this lovely cafe a few days ago to get some slices for a platter I was making up for a friend. The friendly cafe girl cut up my slices of choice even helped me place items on platter and wrapped it up for me. Supplied me with nappkins and chutney for... More

We had not used this word until we arrived in NZ and heard a radio host comment that he felt replete. Who talks like that anymore? So when we passed this café in Taupo we had to stop. The food was unique, and we loved the taste along with a great coffee! Check out the store attached to it.

We went for coffee and cakes late one afternoon and shortly after we sat down they started to clear the cake cabinet out. I assume that cakes and slices were being covered to put out again the next day, fair enough I think, but the girl behind the counter used her fingers on several occasions (as she'd taken the serving...

Eggs Benedict was not on the menu, a Cafe stable (or normal menu item) was poached eggs with a side of hollandaise. When it arrived it was poorly poached eggs, a little on the small side, tentacled whites probably from eggs not that fresh, the bacon was cooked on a dirty grill as there was a blacken charcol colour and...

Friendly staff and good quality food with quite a range. The coffee was some of the best we had while in New Zealand.

Ordered two poached eggs with bacon and two coffees - when the waitress came she brought me mince on Vogels and two coffees - we then had to pay extra for the order they didn't bring and were overcharged - not impressed at all.

Easter Monday was busy and noisy in the cafe, but even so I was brought something I didn't order and then had to pay the difference - fair enough - but then we were overcharged by about $9
