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.

So many delicious gluten free options with a great understanding of Coeliac disease. We came twice a day for two days while we were stopping through as it was so good. Also fantastic coffee and excellent service.

Best Cafe in New Zealand. I’m quite fussy as I have a beef intolerance, I haven’t been able to eat any of the sausage rolls in this country as they never tell you what kind of meat. This cafe has clear labels so you know...exactly what kind of meat you are getting, there are loads of different options available. Coffee was brilliant (always a hit or miss since being here). 10/10 goood coffee! Lovely atmosphere, cool decor, really clean and great service.More

I had the porridge and my husband had scrambled eggs and bacon with flat whites. Both meals were delish and the coffee was outstanding. Service was excellent and staff really friendly. Highly recommend!

Fantastic coffee. Not that common in Taupo anymore. If Ris is on the machine you’re in for a treat. He’s sweet and friendly too. So refreshing.

It's a tradition for my partner and I to stop off at BodyFuel for a coffee every time we drive through Taupo as it's divine :D Love the selection of food too (cabinet AND menu)

Early breakfast for darling and me on Taupo retreat. Went to Bodyfuel of previous year experience and TA reviews. Coconut flat white hot and strong. We sort of shared (I got one bite) a melting moment while we waited for our mains meals. Part of...the “always eat dessert first” philosophy. I ordered creamy mushrooms. Bread lovely. Generous serve of mushrooms but quite bland. At least there were salt and pepper on the table to season it up. Darling had the pancakes. They were totally uninspired. Three offerings the size of large pikelets and dry enough that they might even have been reheated. 4/10. A berry compote or similar would make a big difference. Lack of thought will have us not return again. There is plenty of competition in Taupo. Try The Spoon and Paddle. ❤️👮‍♂️More

A reasonable selection of vegan options (4 slices and a main course) easily identified via a brilliant colour coding system (gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, dairy free) Snickers slice and Ginger slice (both vegan) come highly recommended Super helpful and friendly staff too!

There were 7 of us for breakfast, with the majority having been here over the preceding 3 days. The boss and I ordered mushrooms on toast which also came with avocado, bacon and halloumi cheese. As with our previous experiences here, the food was magnificent,...well presented and very tasty, although a tad salty. Coffee and chai were delicious as always. Staff were generally very good but again, more smiles wouldn't go amiss. One thing I did notice with their cabinet food (which looked yummy, but the way) was the lack of pricing shown. This could be off-putting to some people and could be easily remedied. Really good café overall.More
