Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Have been to Baked with Love many many times. We visit Taupo every two to three months to visit family. The first time we went was on the suggestion of a family member. It did not disappoint. A large range of food to choose from,...both cabinet and menu items and, a nice range of treats to take home. Fantastic coffee as well ( I’m picky when it comes to coffee), will often go and get a takeaway coffee to have on the car ride home. Even if it is busy, you can still get a seat . Will continue to visit every time we are thereMore

This has become a firm favourite of mine when I travel to Taupo for the Ironman events, I ate here every day on this trip! Great choice of menu options, plus the most amazing selection of savoury and sweet treats at the counter. Good friendly...service even when they were very busy, put this in on your list if you visit Taupo and if you live there and haven’t already tried it, then give it a go, soon!More

Amazing Cafe and cakery. The staff made my daughter feel so special on her Birthday. Spending a birthday oversees is special but a stop into the camera made it a birthday to remember. Best cake.

This lovely café can be found in Gascoigne Street in Taupo, Ph 07 376 5513. We happened to park outside this café and decided to go in for lunch. The café was packed and people were queued at the counter. The food in the cabinet...looked most inviting and the most colourful I had ever seen. And it was as tasty as it looked. There were lots of gluten free offerings as well as Keto, Vegan and Dairy free delights. They also sold celebration cakes – birthdays, weddings, etc. Lovely café, definitely recommend.

Good breakfast. The avocado toast was especially good, among the best I've ever had. The desserts on display were also great. I loved the cinnamon brioche and banana bread. The place is very busy though and we waited a long time (around 40 minutes) for...our food.More

Good customer service. Breakfast was really nice - hot crispy rostis, freshly cooked bacon, and eggs cooked perfect. Coffee was a bit average - a bit too bitter for my taste.

WOW! Perhaps one of the loveliest cafes we’ve ever been to! Randomly parked outside this visually appealing store, on our way through to Ohakune, & desperate for lunch (it was Father’s Day), we hopped on in. Every corner, even the beautifully clean loos, is eye...candy. Gorgeous, artistically created sweet treats abound. The lunch and coffee we ordered came quickly, looked amazing & tasted even better. Service was great and as people departed their tables, staff promptly cleared & cleaned. So top marks guys & girls. We were impressed & can’t wait to visit again.More

At every cafe, I always get oat milk with one shot of flavour. Most I’ve paid for a large latte like this, is $6.50. Receipt came to $9.30. I paid $9.57 as got charged extra for using my visa debit. It wasn’t a large cup....More medium size and it wasn’t worth $9.57 tbh. Muffins looked great, but were about $11. So over $20 for a mediocre coffee and a muffin.More
