This cafe looks average from outside but it is actually nice inside. Good food, friendly staff, great coffee.

We happened to drive past Piccolo on a Sunday, first day in Taupo, thought why not give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised with the different types of food displayed at the counter and also a small selection on their menu. The food was good quality, presented with a small side salad when we ordered toasted ham, cheese and tomato sandwich. The chips looked amazing so we ordered some, it came with side tomato sauce and garlic aioli dipping sauce. Iced coffee was delicious and staff were friendly and efficient there. The food can be a touch pricey but given the quality and freshness of the food, we didn't mind as much. We look forward to another visit there before we leave Taupo on Friday.

We had planned on going to a different cafe for breakfast, but it wasn't open (it was 7.50am on a Friday). So, by default, we ended up in Piccolo because it was open. As it turned out the decor, service, pricing and food was such we would definitely return next time we are passing through. We will also recommend to other colleagues who travel through as well. My kumara cakes with poach eggs, hollandaise served with the bacon side (Piccolo's version of Eggs Bene) was absolutely delicious if a little too generous in size (half size would have been enough). My two colleagues opted for the eggs (one poached, one scrambled) toast and bacon. Hearty size and demolished with no complaint. Piccolo's gain on the day.
