Wide range of food items on menu and in cabinet, we had a few things from both all of which looked and tasted amazing. Waiter was very friendly and great customer service overall. Only issue would’ve been the bar manager wasn’t there so couldn’t have a beer with lunch, maybe a sign as you go in to make customers aware.

If someone asked me to recommend a coffee shop in Taupo I’d have no hesitation in saying, “go to Taste!” Three people, three different coffee’s and made to perfection. Oh and the Blueberry muffin was a favorite too. Well done Taste!

We were there for breakfast on the Tuesday and came back for coffee on the Wednesday. The Manager was very friendly and efficient (we walked in the door the second day and he remembered us) and Owen was just great, regaling us with his witty jokes and stories. The short legged long nosed Australian terrier - was a - crocodile.A real draw card and if you go you MUST ask for Owen.Oh- and the food was great too.

A friendly helpful approach always helps when it comes to running a cafe or restaurant and we got that abundantly when visiting this cafe. All we needed was a basic lunch and we were taken through the various options, particularly the specials for the day. I went for the pumpkin soup and that was a great choice. The drizzled balsamic vinegar was a great little touch and the bread that came with it was perfectly fresh and above all delicious. One special touch that I observed was the classical music being played in the background. It contributed enormously to my enjoyment of lunch (UK visitors think ClassicFM without the announcements and advertisements). It made me want to sit quietly and relax over my coffee before proceeding on to the next event in my day. An altogether happy and pleasant experience.
