I have visited this cafe a few times whilst travelling through Taupo, always consistently good, the service is friendly, the coffee good, oh and the food...delicious! The cabinet draws you in as soon as you walk up to the counter with lots of options for veges and gluten free. Awesome work guys! I'll definately be back!

I was in Taupo, with a very sore throat, and 'time to kill', shopping. I went initially, for a hot drink, and ordered the lemon/lime and ginger drink. Aaaah! Just what the sore throat needed!
Met up with hubby afterward, and told him we had to go back, and order a late lunch. The crowd of people had dissipated, and we had a lovely vegetarian quiche/ bacon and egg small pie, with salad/sauces.
Great! I tried the 'fritzy' drink this time, which had lemon/kaffir lime leaves/lemongrass shoots and ginger slices in hot water. Another lovely, soothing drink!
Great range for vegetarians, which is a plus

I wanted the best coffee in Taupo- this wasn't it :(
Too hot, not very tasty.
I'm sure the food is yum but the coffee didn't do it for us.

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to review our cafe, we really appreciate it. As one of the owners of Eruption Cafe I'm disappointed in your experience. We pride ourselves in not only our awesome food, but also our coffee. And provide regular training for our Baristas. We have taken note of you comments and will be working with both our Baristas and trainers to try and ensure there is no recurrence of this type.

Great find after a drive down from Auckland....
We were pleasantly welcomed and ordered our food at the counter.... There was a nice selection of cake's,quiche's and sandwich's on display...
What a shock when it arrived at our table after we'd ordered off the blackboard....
It was very nicely presented, the coffee's were great and at that cost a bargain, there were no complaints but phrase galore....
If i didn't live in the uk,i'd be a regular....
