“Just average breakfast option.”
Review of Spoon and Paddle

Spoon and Paddle
Ranked #2 of 17 Quick Bites in Taupo
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Lonely Planet says: Filling a spacious and airy 1950s house with colourful decor, Spoon & Paddle is more evidence you'll find great cafes pretty well anywhere in NZ. Excellent coffee partners with a concise beer and wine list, and the energetic and youthful owners focus on delivering dishes like tasty lamb shoulder tortillas, and just maybe the country's best eggs Benedict. A mini-fort in the garden will get the kids exploring, while Mum and Dad tuck into mid-afternoon treats like macaroons or lemon meringue pie

Stopped in after TA reviews and local recommendation, don't understand the high reviews, thought the selection was limited and prices high for what was on offer. Coffee was fine as was tea. Overall just an average experience.
Would prefer to try other options if in the area.

Popped in for a quick breakfast and what a cool place. Split across a couple of rooms as it is an old house. Breakfast of eggs was lovely and really enjoyed the coffee.
