Cafés

With mouth-watering blackboard menus and cabinets filled to the brim with delicious classic and contemporary daytime fare, Taupō is bursting at the seams with vibrant and quirky cafés.

They’re often found at locations of interest, like Creel Cafe in a historic fly-fishing tackle house or Lava Glass in a colourful glassblowing gallery, and some even have their own gift and homeware stores like Storehouse, Replete and L'Arte.

Taupo's café and foody culture is up with the big cities - local favourites like Baked with Love (the doughnuts are to die for), Café Baku and Cadillac Café in Turangi never disappoint with fabulous coffee and drool-worthy cabinets freshly stocked each day.

All-day menus combined with exquisite views, eclectic décor and barista-poured coffee mean you’ll always look forward to you next meal break at one of Taupō’s café destinations.
