If you are in Taupo, you must visit this place! It´s very close to town and it´s amazing!! You can have lunch in this relaxing and quiet place, a coffee, or if you cannot spent any money, you can just go to walk around and look all the lovely art that hey have!! They are dog friendly also!

We stop by here every time we are in Taupo, both for the art and the food and coffee. On this visit we got more garden art and lunch. The coffee was spot on and the chicken and mushroom pie was very tasty - great to see it was warmed using the oven and not nuked. All cafe staff are... More

Have had brunch here both times we have visited Taupo in recent years and their Eggs Benedict with Salmon doesn't disappoint. Great relaxed atmosphere, kids no problem and plenty of options up at the art shop for interesting different souvenirs you wont... More

Really great tasting coffee and my full cooked breakfast was one of the best i have ever had or made myself. The scrambled eggs were so soft and creamy, really great food and happy smiling staff....

My husband and I stopped here on our way out of town. It doesn't open on Mondays or Tuesdays so that was our only option. It was a bit rainy but still very pretty to look at. Gift items for sale were a bit too expensive for my liking but the coffee was so good I grabbed an extra one... More

Have loved Judy's work for years. So just having a cuppa outside and looking at the art is enough. But, when hungry the food is consistently good. Reason enough that it has been a favourite local café for a long time!
