“Has slipped a little”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Handy to a couple of nice dealer galleries, Replete has long been our Taupo favourite But as we haven't passed through the town for a while, it was time to see how the cafe measured up. It clearly remains very popular; tables were full and the cabinets were well stocked with food. I had a good pot of tea; no problems. My partner's coffee was (we say this often in reviews of NZ cafes) bland and luke warm. I had a nice savoury muffin: very large and fell apart, but tasty. My partner had a nice cake. Service was, as usual, very good. Nice outdoor seating on side street. prices a little high. Tip: Avoid the kitchen/speciality food shop attached to the cafe; the prices are outrageous. Items I priced were up to 30% more expensive than other outlets.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Nice coffee, good food! We went here twice in same day had some awesome breakfast which was the muesli and fruit medley with the piako yogurt, yum!!
Lunch I chose standard bacon and eggs with side of spinach, awesome as well. Coffee was pretty good, considering I'm really fussy coffee person that's awesome! Good service too!

“"Fast delicious food with service"!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We visited Replete cafe on recommendation & previous visits & once again, another lunch without disapointment. As always the cafe was very busy but we got a inside seat up at the window. Our food was delivered fast, hot & just what we wanted. A fantastic selection in their cabinet or from the blackboard. Something for everyones tastebuds. Pricing also very competitive & reasonable.

“Drop in, the food was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Stumbled across this cafe when looking for a light lunch whilst passing through the bustling town of Taupo. Has seats inside and out and a small cook shop where you can buy bits and prices for the kitchen. The cafe displays a range of unusual sandwiches or light snacks. We had a beef enchilada stack and a mushroom and bacon tortilla wrap with a mixture of four interesting and tasty salads. Staff were good and the food yummy

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Great coffee, but best of all are the cakes.We all tried the home baking and couldn't believe how fresh and tasty the apple cake and ginger loaf were. We will definitely be back!
