Nothing brings the family together quite like a good brunch. For the perfect poachies, fluffiest pancakes, and a variety of big breakfasts, treat yourselves at Taupō’s newest café! Café Lacus’ vision of being an eatery for all ages to enjoy makes it the perfect place to fuel your day of adventures.
Thanks to a curated menu with unique spins like the Yorkshire Breakfast, a heaping plate of breakfast favourites to fill up dad, and french toasts to make the kids smile.
Coffee lovers, rejoice! The creamy nitro cold brew on tap will kick-start your afternoon of fun in the most delicious way.

After working up an appetite and exploring virtual worlds, the whānau may be ready for something sweet. Sugar Mumma’s is the perfect spot for an afternoon treat, but it isn’t your regular ice cream parlor...
It's a full dessert bar offering nostalgic desserts with a modern flare. You and the kids enjoy tried-and-true favourites like Salted Caramel to gourmet takes on classics like Blood Orange Chocolate Shatter.
But the treats don’t stop there! Try the deluxe milkshakes made with your favourite flavours topped with macarons, whipped cream, hot sauces, and candy. But if you’re ready for a new dessert experience, be sure to try their croissant ice cream sandwiches or sugar fries.
