We stopped for an early morning Breakfast, en route to Auckland. Tempted by the "Specials Board" I was not disappointed...The NZ Whitebait omelette was delicious along with Rocket salad and crisp Bacon.

On our way home we called in to Taupo for a rest, freshen up and kai. I quickly jumped on TripAdvisor to have a look for a local goodie. We choose Bodyfuel and weren't disappointed. Food was great, service by young waitress and the lovely man on drinks was on point. Definitely recommend Bodyfuel.

We literally spent the day touring and needed food. We stumbled on this restaurant and found the staff engaging, the food tasty and plentiful. We finally found a tossed salad which was delicious! A step above the usual coffee shop fare including smoothies, and is licensed.

Thank Janine P
