3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2010

Nice decor and reasonably good service but the food was disappointing. I ordered the rosti which was not really a rosti. It was a big slab of stale bread with 2 hash browns on top, 2 poached eggs and underneath was some cold spinach and capsicum with sweet chilli sauce. The sweet chilli sauce didn't work at all. It was a pity because the poached eggs were done perfectly and with a bit of tweeking it could have been a lovely lunch. my husband had the open fish sandwich and reported that it was average. The coffee was very good - a lovely cappucino.

thank you for your comment. It is always good to get feedback on what we are doing. I am glad you like the decor, although we are in the process of giving a cafe a makeover later this year. In regards to your meals I apologize if they were not up to your standards. The poached egg rosti stack is served on turkish bread that is baked daily served with bacon, hashbrowns and poached eggs with spinach and a light drizzle of sweet pepper sauce. This is generally a popular breakfast with both visitors and locals alike. Although called "poached egg rosti" we do use hashbrowns as stated on our menu. Once again we apologize if we did not exceed your expectation on this visit and hope you will give us a second chance on your next visit to Taupo.
