I chose this restaurant based on location and the fact that they had breakfast all day. My food was delicious and the service was great. Everything was so good I decided to eat there the next day and the food and service again were great....More

Quite pricey but great views from the outside seating area. Had the full breakfast and mushroom breakfasts. Both came pretty quickly and both were tasty. Coffee was just as I like it.

Eggs Benedict and nachos for brunch both scored a zero. If this food wasn’t pre made on plates and then just reheated to Luke warm, I’ll eat my hat. Fast delivery to the table after ordering was just too good to be true.

After placing our order our coffee and breakfast of eggs arrived at our table 40 mins later. It wasn’t extremely busy so and there was no explanation for the wait.once it arrived the meals were nice.

The fact that nearby food places were a lot busier should have alerted us! Eggs Benedict and field mushrooms poor. Hollandaise sauce underwhelming. Toilet cleanliness ok but could be better.

Prime location overlooking Lake Taupo. The iced chocolate is drinkable, but in my opinion not worth the calories. A bit effort in presentation would go a long way.
