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.

An iced latte with oat milk cost me $15.50. That’s a stunningly ridiculous price. When I questioned it I was reimbursed $2.50. Even at $13.00, I won’t ever return

Wouldn’t have found this place without my friend’s local knowledge as it’s tucked away, to the side of a petrol station. Incredible food, great service, reasonable prices and great atmosphere. Obviously loved by locals as, apparently, it’s always busy.

Amazing breakfast. The Industrie big breakfast and the French toast were both exceptional. So glad we got a local recommendation. Wish I was a local so I could return as lol the cabinet food looked amazing.

This cafe is a favourite of ours when passing through or staying in Taupo. The food is beautifully and creatively presented, the flavours are interesting, and the coffee is very good. With pleasant staff and quick service this is a place to check out.

As locals this is a favourite Cafe of ours. The coffee is consistently excellent as is the cabinet food (huge selection) and service. Often there are queues out to the door but they quickly clear and there never seems to be much if a wait...for either the food or coffee no matter how busy they are.More

Love this cafe while travelling BUT, twice now we have arrived just on 3.30pm to get coffee and food to go and TWICE they have been closing up and refused to serve us. The first time I spoke with the manager, now it has happened...again! I can't be the only one who is annoyed by this. Their advertised closing time is 4pm. .More

I love this cafe, service has always been good, the coffee is superb and I always find something on the menu that takes my fancy ( although I must admit that I’m not a huge fan of scrambled eggs served on a croissant). I’ve normally...stayed away from the savoury items though because in the descriptions they almost all have onions and I don’t like onions! Joy of joys when I was looking through the cabinet and saw that the chicken sandwich didn’t have onions, my first mouthful, however, proved different. Now, I realise that I should have asked first but because they make such a good job of listing the ingredients I naturally assumed that onions would not be included. I did air my frustration with 2 staff members who both made no apology at all. I love this cafe and I will continue to go there but I’ll be a bit more careful next time. I also hope that the staff read this and that they re-think their attitude, they are, after all, in the hospitality industry.More

I used to love stopping at this little place for a croissant and a coffee but this morning the coffee was somehow burnt and warm at the same time. The almond croissant was very unpleasant, all squished up, not really fluffy and it had an...odd taste- like black liquorice. I'll probably just risk a petrol station pie next time.More
