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.

We have eaten repeatedly at this lovely coffee shop. The food is excellent and the staff efficient and friendly. The attached store stocks a great range of high quality gadgets/gifts, many of which I have not seen elsewhere. Well worth a visit.

Best cafe in Taupo hands down. Great service, friendly staff. Very good coffee too, best in town I think. The shop attached has some great kitchen things. Really nice environment for a brunch or lunch.

This cafe has lovely food and a shop next door which sells very groovy, eco-friendly and sophisticated merchandise. I've been here twice now and love the Kiwi Cuban sandwich. Excellent service.

We haven’t been to replete for a long time but our impression last time was very positive and likewise again today. Breakfast was excellent. I had the porridge which was the best that I have tasted. The double breakfast menu is a really good idea....The menu range and then huge choice in cabinet food makes this place quite unique in Taupo. Coffee was excellent and service prompt. When you throw in a store that sells high quality products from linen to luggage it’s an easy 5/5. We will be backMore

I'm happy to say that Replete is back to its almost best. I had a lamb shank pie (which I often have when we seldom visit town). It had a splinter of bone in it, which was potentially a tooth breaker, and lots of potatoes...which I haven't struck vefore, but apart from that it was great. Yummiest ever relish, and the coffee was as good as ever.More

Nice space, normal busy cafe noise levels. My nasi lemak had good flavour, but a bit dry. Coffee was good.

Sometimes we come to Taupo and try other places to eat, but we always regret it when we don't come here. This place is amazing in so many ways - service, smile, speed, tasty food, variety of food, presentation, helpfulness, atmosphere, location. Keep it up...Replete crew - you're doing an EXCELLENT job.More

I stumbled upon this gem of a cafe- what a find! There was a long line of people, waiting to be served, so clearly this is a popular place- not even mentioned on Trip Advisor. I was served efficiently, found a spot to sit. The...coffee and food came out very quickly and was delicious. This became my "go to" Cafe over the weekend and I wasn't disappointed. I also bought some succulents in a beautiful bowl, as a gift for our daughter, at the adjoining store. The shop assistant went to some trouble to package the bowl in a box, with hessian fill, to protect it from damage for our trip to the Wairarapa. I really appreciated her thoughtfulness and going the extra mile 🙌More

Great brunch time menu that suited us. I had hotcakes with bacon and banana which were great. Had to order at the counter, but food was brought to our table. Wait staff were friendly too.
