“Very nice, very cool stop for coffee at the Marina!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

We happened upon this very interesting, small coffee stand at the Taupo Marina and saw a handful of people enjoying coffee and desserts so we decided to give it a try one late afternoon during our recent trip. What a good decision this was as we had a very good coffee and excellent dessert, take-away, from Stir Cafe.

Our Long Black coffee (NZ$3.80) was rich, bold and just tasted very nice (rating 4 of 5), well worthy of a return trip and recommendation. We also shared a Strawberry Muffin (NZ$3.5), which was very well made - soft, light and fluffy yet moist and with a nice strawberry flavor that didn't overpower the muffin itself, just a beautifully made muffin that tasted excellent (rating 5 of 5).

Overall, this was a surprisingly nice find, an enjoyable place that served us very good coffee and an excellent muffin. We'd happily drop by Stir Cafe again when visiting Taupo and might very well had become regulars here if we lived in the area.
