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 have written 100s of reviews, regretfully this is my first negative one. I have always enjoyed Victoria's have had many great coffees over the years, nice ambience friendly staff, great location. I ordered eggs benedict. What arrived was a shock! A minuscule meal I...doubt if it was 15cm across and it was raw served with I think 1 strip of bacon lost in soggy what I presume were muffins the eggs had white liquid running from the yolks. They did offer to recook but I declined and got a cash refund.More

Enjoyed this so much we went multiple times in a brief stay in Taupo. Great menu selections and tasty. We went first for coffee, then breakfast twice after that.

Ordered pancakes with lemon and sugar. Got berry instead and pancakes were crunchy. Ordered omelette with spinach and hollandaise. Forgot to add the hollandaise. Table on arrival was not wiped properly. Give it a miss.

We stopped in on our way back home based on Tripadvisor reviews for their eggs Benedict. Reviewers you let us down!! Other than tasty bacon some of the worst eggs been we’ve had! Eggs overdone, bland hollandaise which hardly appeared on the plate and the...rosti bases were cold and lacked flavour. Whilst the coffees were nice the food was far from it.More

Fabulous cafe, a huge range of cabinet food and lunches, excellent coffee. The date and orange scones are to die for. Always visit when we are in Taupo.

We were so happy with the breakfast and menu choices the first day we ended up going back for brunch the second day. The food was well presented and really tasty. Coffee was fantastic. I definitely recommend

Used to love Vic’s but since ownership has changed, it’s been awful. Two couples and our food came out when they had already finished eating, even though we ordered together. My ‘hot” salmon was cold as ice inside and not cooked. Couldn’t eat it. Told...them and they didn’t do anything to rectify it.More

What a delicious find in Taupo! Such lovely and quick service. We had the hearty porridge (oats, linseed, chia, quinoa, peaches, mascarpone, dehydrated mandarins and Brazil nuts) and the bacon and eggs with toast. Heart warming robust pot of tea too! Perfect for the chilly...weather.More

Visited twice in two days, the coffee and magic mushroom brunch was so good the first time in the middle of a busy day that I had to go back the next! Love the relaxed feel too, nice welcome feel as a solo traveller. On...the second visit the coffee was still good but wait staff made the didn’t tell the kitchen my eggs bene order correctly, so that’s the only reason it’s not a full 5 star review. Definitely recommend, but say your order twice - just to be sure!More

Great service and coffee. Very pricey lunch! Order the mushrooms with sour dough. When the meal arrived no more that 6 button white mushrooms cut in quarters, a tiny bit of chopped spinach and some confit garlic, with a couple of spoonfuls of sauce and...1 very thin slice of sour dough but in half. For $24 would have expected a little more. It was very tasty but the $24 price tag was hefty. Would reconsider ordering off the blackboard menu in future with the prices.More

Probably the best eggs benny I’ve ever eaten. The rosti was so tasty, eggs poached perfectly and the pork belly add on was delicious. Staff were all super friendly and welcoming. Only disappointing thing is I was leaving town straight after so won’t get to...try anything else!More
