Saluté is definitely one of my go to cafes when I have visitors in town. The food is always delish, served promptly and presented nicely. Definitely recommended!

Popped in for a quick lunch. Great selection, something different for the whole family. All very wholesome and tasty. Good selection of cakes and slices to take away too!

I really enjoyed my mushrooms and the caramel slice. My wife enjoyed the gluten free chocolate cake. Lovely staff international mix. Nice to see a cheese room. Would go back next time we are in Taupo.
