Stopped in for breakfast on a weekday morning. Should have taken a cue from the restaurant being pretty much empty as a strong clue. Bought a $9 sandwich that was just old bread, a few pieces of chicken, thick butter and red onions. It was terrible. Also, asked for one of our coffees to be extra hot and it arrived warm and was able to be swallowed in one gulp. Tourist trap. I won't go here ever again, and wouldn't recommend it to anyone who expects anything reasonable for their money.

Went here for breakfast and had a Eggs Benedict and a Full Breakfast and both were really good and no complaints. Service was good. Would definitely go back again.

Was here for business for 4 days and can't wait to go back. Better than I have had a top hotels around the world. Loved the variety and the fact you could ask off menu what you wanted (within reason). Some modern healthy and some traditional.

Enjoying a weekend stay in Taupo and started Sunday with breakfast here at Taste. The staff were probably the most service orientated of any staff we dealt with all weekend - which was a plus as in most places for a tourist center the staff employed just do not seem to have a grasp on what makes good service and how to engage with clients as if you care - so well done Taste Cafe. Breakfast was served quickly, the smiles were appreciated and the atmosphere and food made a lovely start to the day.
