Spoon & Paddle

Cafe in Taupo

Filling a 1950s house with colourful decor, this cafe feels like popping into a friend's place for brunch with a whole lot of strangers. Breakfast runs all day, and from 11.30am you can order tasty international numbers, including pork-belly bao, local beef-brisket soft-shell tacos or a lamb-shoulder salad bowl. Great coffee and a playground for the kids.
