L'Arte was beautiful and fun afternoon tea stop during our trip to Taupo. The cafe had lovely food and coffee with a beautiful display of art to enjoy!

L'Arte was recommended by a friend and we were so glad to get this recommendation. It offers a neat location just out from Acacia Bay and the art work / sculptures are delightful. Food is wholesome and good servings along with being fresh - very impressive.

Really neat location with a great atmosphere, awesome coffee and good service but felt good was pricey for what we had. I had lamb cutlets with pita and mint yoghurt but for over $20 I thought it was a very small lunch however I would definitely go back and my friends raved about the corn fritters

Art and food combined. Very nicely situated cafe with interesting artworks and tasty menu. We loved our bacon and blue cheese salad and the coffee was excellent.

Had lunch here and was so impressed! My corn fritters were so delicious. My husband raved about his bacon and eggs too. The staff were so friendly and my daughter loved checking out the outside art displays

We ate here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant gives the impression of being basically a coffee shop, but the lunch menu was creative and substantial. The ceramic art works are whimsical and fun.
