This is a nice local deli cafe with a great bakery and sandwiches. Pick from a nice selection at the counter and take a table inside or out. We had the Turkish chicken sandwich and recommend it.

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.

This Cafe has both indoor and out door seating, the food not only looks great but is simply delicious, The staff were friendly and well presented. Food is reasonably priced with fair sized portions. Will definitely eat here again.

We stopped here for a lite-bite, what we had was good, nice salad served with the quiche I had. It maybe a little overpriced for what it was but it hols up for the quality of the food.

We called in here for brunch on a recent trip to Taupo and the food and coffee were very good. The service was good also, but there was a long wait for food.

I was given a voucher for this cafe and hoped it was better than some recent reviews. Unfortunately it was no better. We waited 25 minutes for poached eggs which were pale and overdone, served on dry toast. On a plus, the coffee was good.

Wanted to celebrate a birthday with a lunch at a local café. Food and service left a lot to be desired. Collectively we rated it between terrible and poor.
