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.

Saw this cafe several times when we drove around Taupo to explore those thermal walks... Stopped by on last day in Taupo for coffee and scones. We enjoyed the seating on the deck very much. The cool things about this cafe are all about aviation....A helicopter tour operates here so you got very close look of helicopter taking off and landing. They also had a big retired transportation helicopter which you can go in and take a look.More

Wonderful food and service. Our party had a lot of dietary requirements which were not a problem at all for Kefi. An extensive and delicious menu.

Wish I’d have spent every day here! If you’re looking for healthy food, low carb options, fruit, veg, good coffee, don’t waste your time trying to find anything else. This is the place to be.

This has been an absolute favourite while I have been in Taupo visiting my mother. The coffee is consistently great and the food delicious. What sets Kefi apart is the service - special thanks to Danni whose warmth and kindness toward my Mum is so...appreciated and the general welcoming vibe Danni and all the staff create. Can thoroughly recommend.More

As locals we enjoy both s coffee and a sweet treat for morning tea or a tasty lunch. The salad selection is amazing and very tasty. Large selection of sweet and savoury options in the cabinets. Coffee is always hot and very good (long blacks)...and staff are all very friendly.More

A super convenient location to grab some food when you're out and about visiting the sights surrounding Taupo. The food is delicious and the menu is super creative. There's tons of options! Great service and lots of seating inside and out. I came because of...all the good reviews I read and wasn't disappointed. It's all true!More

Absolutely stunning food and perfect service! Very good experience, quick service and nice facilities. I had the keto Benedict, my partner had the beer battered fish and chips and mother in law had the Gluten free Quiche. All beautiful and well received.

Had read good things about this cafe so stopped in for lunch, getting a table in nice, sunny spot on street. The menu was quite comprehensive but we thought the dishes a little more than we had wanted to pay, so checked inside and saw...they had an array of attractive and healthy-looking salads available in various sizes at very reasonable prices (eat-in or takeaway). We ordered a green salad and a lentil salad, and they were perfect. Fresh and delicious. Coffee was good here too.More

Amazing selection of keto cakes in the cabinet, plus good coffee. The “sex in a tin” was particularly good, though the tiramisu was great too.

Where do I start. From the moment we walked in the door, I was in keto heaven. I didn’t need to explain anything, when I asked for a fat bomb ! Then the menu! Heaps of options for a keto breakfast…. And that was before...I looked at the cabinet! Cheese cake, slices, treats galore. I’m don’t live locally, but Id make the two hour drive to Taupo any time… knowing that Kefi is there, when I arrive.
