The quality of service was far from excellent, it was as if the staff did not want to work this public holiday and it really showed. Not a very comfortable environment to be a customer in. Coffee, very watery Latte, you can only stretch milk so far and the barista pushed it beyond the 'done zone', Z service station coffee... More

We left Taupo on Sunday morning and decided to wait and find something for breakfast on the route south. A bit of a mistake as now I can pretty much confirm there is nothing decent in terms of cafes until you get to Taihape. We decided to give this cafe a go thinking there must be something decent in Turangi... More

They do not deserve the title Cafe. The service was not that expected from a cafe environment. The service was unfriendly, slow & unprofessional. We would not recommend stopping at the Mustard Seed.

Great salads and sandwiches in a darling café setting. Save some room for dessert or take it along for afternoon tea!

On ordering bacon, eggs and hashbrowns I noticed the price was more expensive than the breakfast so of course I changed my order to suit. The staff were unimpressed and unfriendly in general. $26.90 for tea for one, big breaky and a cup of hot water was expensive - it is Turangi not Taupo. Rents must be cheaper. I wasnt... More

This was the first time that I had dropped into Mustard Seed in few months but it could have just easily been just the other day...I was greeted by name by the staff behind the counter, had a quick chat while my coffee was being prepared and was on my way again. The coffee here is really very very good... More

Stopped for a late lunch while travelling yesterday. Had their delicious Bacon, Egg, Pea and Feta Pie. Didn't bother with the salad, I knew the pie alone would fill me up, and it did. So much so that I didn't need dinner later that evening. The food is delicious, the service efficient and friendly, the soy latte was yummy too.... More

The breakfast was not as appealing as before,small with a big price.Coffee was okay and the service at the counter was not up to standard.Staff were in the kitchen talking instead of being behind the counter. Not much on offer,not worth the price.

So sad to say ... paid $3 extra for salad which consisted of lettuce and a few grains of grated carrot. Got a flat white coffee ... so flat looked like instant. The young man behind the counter took 3 tries to get our order correct. Not a relaxing or happy atmosphere
