My fiance and I love Turangi so much (we're getting married there this year!) that we go up as often as we can for weekends away from Wellington. Coming from the US, it took me a bit to let go of my morning coffee and embrace the Kiwi "flat white" and luckily for me, the Mustard Seed has a yummy... More

We ate here today. We found it quite pricey - $58 for our family of 4. 2 adults and 2 young kids. Lasagne was microwave reheated and dumped on the plate without so much as a lettuce leaf to go with it. My seven year old wolfed it down though, so it must have tasted good. Soup was quite yummy,...

Food was ok as was coffee and we didn't have to wait long as the place was practically empty.Having said that tables weren't cleared or offered to be wiped when coffee or food arrived and due to the place not...

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
