This Cafe has become the must go to place for hot drinks for the week we are in Taupo. My partner said the Coffees are fab and my daughters and my hot chocolates are good as well.

Have many holidays in Taupo and keep coming back here. There may be newer cafes in Taupo that you wish to try but Bodyfuel gets all the ticks. Friendly prompt service, always busy - not surprising, AMAZING and interesting food both from the menu and cabinet, (so often you could predict what will be on a breakfast menu) and excellent...

Popped in on a mission. Had fast service and being a fussy coffee drinker risked a long Black. Great taste, good amount of crema and water on the side, not swamped in. Good work and will be back

After reading great reviews about Bodyfuel I must have struck them on an 'off' day. We visited on a Thursday mid-morning so the cafe was not particularly busy. We encountered a grumpy server behind the counter who didn't feel the need to greet us or the customers before or after us. She then appeared put out that I enquired what... More

This is the best cafe I have been too. Most amazing breakfast I ever had! My partner and I ordered creamy mushrooms & pork belly! Came out very very fast, every one was very polite. Portions are huge and taste delicious!! I created a trip advisor just to tell everyone to go here!!
