We visited this cafe as it is in the Lonelt Planet, we were quite dissapointed with our food:burger and a salad. We didnt try the desserts or the coffee.

I have visited here years ago and it was great so I was pleased to find it is still as good as ever. I was on my own and keen for some peace and quiet, which I managed to get in this busy restaurant. I was greeted on arrival and provided with a small menu plus there was a variety... More

Piccolo has a great selection of sweet and savoury breakfast/brunch dishes! The coffee was very good too, and so was the tea selection. What made this place stand out for me, was the fabulous customer service and friendliness of staff. Often enough waiters don't really care about their customers, but Piccolos staff made an effort to present the food nicely... More

I love going to Piccolo for breakfast in Taupo. Great service/fast service, great coffees and decent sized meals, without skimping on quality. Love this place!

We go here for breakfast every time we are in Taupo. The hash cakes are great. The coffee is always good too. They have some delicious cakes if you want something sweet and the lunch menu is varied and tasty too. An all round winner.

This was the NZ 2016 cafe of the year. And rightly so. 3 good mornings from the staff. Very good coffee, delicious muffin and serious tea. They give you a timer so you know when it is brewed. (this is the 2nd time this has happened in NZ and ee had it once in Germany). We'll be back Arnie! #goodcoffeenz... More
