Dog friendly cafes, restaurants, and markets in Taupō

Take your dog out for a coffee or a pizza by the lake.

Meal times can be moments to connect and enjoy the company of your family, even the fluffy members! Taupo is packed with cafés and restaurants that welcome your pawed pals.

Grab a Greek-inspired meal and a bowl of water from Kefi at the Hub, conveniently located across the road from the end of the dog-friendly Spa Thermal Park to Huka Falls walk.

Or live the café life with views across the lake and a small reserve for your pet to play outside Dixie Browns. Please note you can't bring dogs into some of these cafés. Only the outdoor areas are dog-friendly.
