Nice humble cafe. The staff here are next level friendly and service was a breath of fresh air. Coffee was so good had to go for seconds. Mince on toast was done very well. All my friends were raving about their breakfasts also. Would so...make the effort for a trip here. Sad I don’t live in Taupo or it would be an almost daily.More
Took a trip to the Spoon and Paddle this morning for brunch .
Have to say the service was excellent and the staff were extremely welcoming.
The Shakshuka was the closest thing I've eaten to the real thing and the best I've tasted since I...was in the middle east. Bravo.More
Quintessential eatery. We had brunch there I had egg Benedict. Must admit the best I've ever had. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend visiting Spoon & Paddle to my friends and family when visiting Taupo.
3 of us dined here early 2022. we got waffles, eggs bene and kids pikelets. 2 meals were excellent, but the waffles were exceptional. drinks within 3 mins and food was served within 10 mins. Cafe was reasonably busy with most tables taken. wait staff...were great and service was excellent. will definitely come again before we leave for home.More
For a family of six this place was just right. It had a little play area for the kids and we were able to sit outside away from the heaps of people inside and that was good so the kids could just roam free. The...service was great and people were very friendly, the food was good but maybe a little less than par that day as it was busy as and the kitchen seemed a bit overwhelmed. Plus t was a hot day! If the day were a bit cooler I'm sure the food would have been just right. but it was a bit heavy for what we were thinking it would be. I would go there again and definitely a family friendly place.More
Super friendly service. Great menu options and delicious food. We got the shakshuka and chili prawn tacos. Both were delicious. Nice outdoor area too which is a bonus in summer and in a pandemic. Also checked for vaccine passes which is great.
