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.

I went for breakfast and stayed until after lunch. I found the service exceptional. Not only the staff is welcoming, friendly, and smiling, they also got out of their way to help with my unusual requests (getting my coffee after the food or borrowing a...laptop charger). The food selection and focus on health is equally impressive, as they cater for various diet and nutritional requirements, while giving dishes an original twist. I love the chlorophyll water! This place is now one of my favourite stop for a nourishing refill for my belly and soul.More

Initially we headed to the Trip Advisor #1, Victoria’s Kitchen, but quickly concluded that it is overrated. It had an industrial feel and no oatmeal on the breakfast menu. So we nipped around the corner to the Cozy Corner. There we found a better atmosphere...although it isn’t exactly cozy - a bit austere more like it. Still, the oatmeal was good if lacking in finer touches and coffee acceptable (a long black should always have a good crema. It’s the sign that the coffee has been well made). Nice serving staff and we would go again.More

Thanks for sharing. I guess the cafe to a certain extent is what you make it! I agree we could have more cozy furniture, but compared to a bare cord we are very cozy. Usually our long blacks do have a nice crema, it may...More

Nice menu - lots of gf choices but our lunch wasn’t great. I had Cajun chicken salad. The chicken was tough and dry and the salad was over dressed in honey mustard and there was far too much of the dressing I’m afraid . Bit...disappointing. I was also given some marinated tofu which I didn’t order! The waitress took it back. In all fairness I was ordering by myself- husband was parking so maybe the waitress thought I was by myself and that I wanted the fries as a side ( there was a choice of them or salad that came with the burger) and she knew I had ordered something else so thought it must’ve been another side - marinated tofu - But I hadn’t! She wasn’t to know he was coming, though I had asked for a large juice w two straws 🧐 My husbands halloumi burger was missed but he did get the accompanying kumera chips which were amazing !!! By the time I’d finished, the burger arrived. I would try here again as the menu looked so good for a coeliac!!!!More

I stopped at Cosy Corner for a hearty breakfast before heading over to do the Hukka Falls jet boat ride. I ate with plenty of time to spare so I didn’t throw up on the speed boat (which cuts laps along the Waikato River with...adrenaline pumping 360 degree spins)!The cafe was excellent and I enjoyed a delicious vegetarian breakfast of poached eggs, avocado, fried tomatoes, feta & toast with a wake-up cup of flat white coffee. Service was excellent & the vibes were good! It was a freezing cold morning in Taupo (close to zero degrees Celsius) and the warm cafe & breaky was a godsend.More

My wife and I visited on a very busy day. Taupo was hosting a big music festival and all of the cafes were packed. At The Cozy Corner they were obviously prepared and well organized. They got people seated and took orders quickly. My wife...has allergies which can be problematic. The staff at Cozy Corner listened to her needs. Nothing was difficult and we were not made to feel as though we were putting them out. I had the big vegetarian breakfast which was amazing. Their home made baked beans were to die for. The avocado was perfectly ripe. The eggs were spot on. I drink coffee black which soon shows the quality, theirs is a good dark roast well made to give a deep strong flavour without bitterness. My wife commented that it was one of the best breakfasts she's ever had. All of the wait staff were excellent.More

Wow what a great cafe. From friendly smiling and efficient service to an absolute belter of a menu. Catered for every whim and deitary need. My family was in Taupo for the cycle race ( yes we participated). We looked everywhere for a decent vegan...breakfast for my husband. We were surprisingly disappointed that the options were so limited. We used the Happy Cow app yhat suggested The Cozy Corner. Astonishing array of every dietary need on the Menu. The staff were super friendly,accomodating and remembered us on our 2nd visit. Highly recommend this as a must do breakfast stop.More
