🍴 They have fantastic food and awesome staff! Can't get enough of the creamy mushrooms or the amazing corn fritters! Yummm! They also have a massive outdoor seating area which is perfect in all weather, and sheltered from the wind and rain! Thanks Eruption Taupo...More

Called in for a morning coffee, wasn't disappointed. Great strong coffee, plus the choice of either cabinet food or menu options. We had a bacon and egg pie which I would definitely recommend. Yum!

Managed to sit outside in the sheltered courtyard which was nice rather than having to be inside at this time of the year. Plenty of choices with great variety. My lamb salad was delicious and very large. Lovely flavours with lettuce, grapes, avocadoes, noodles etc.
