Arguably the best Eggs Benedict I have ever had....and I have had a few in my time. Service was friendly without being over the top, place was busy and bustling but didn't feel crowded or chaotic. We were told there would be a 30 minute wait on food but it arrived in 20 - great to be under-promised and over-delivered... More

Have been here a few times now and always found the staff excellent, polite and friendly. The food always looks yum and everything I have tried I have never been disappointed, in saying that I sometimes think that some of the prices are a little high but there again when you put the whole experience together it is most probably...

Visiting from Napier, we found Victoria's recommended online. The atmosphere, lighting & decor was very welcoming. Friendly well presented staff. The Coffee was very good and the mushrooms on toast highly recommended for a tasty healthy breakfast fix. Well done Victoria's, we will definitely be returning on our next Taupo trip!

To add to this we were compensated for the small mistake they... More

We stumbled across this quaint cafe (although it's fairly large on the inside!) that we ended up going back to every morning for breakfast. The Place: A warm, large yet cosy enviornment... More

Had a delicious lunch and coffee here today, Easter Monday. We were told about a half an hour wait from the kitchen, which was pretty good since the place was packed (ended up only being 20mins). To top it off there was no surcharge! We will be back soon.

We visited Victoria's Cafe Kitchen Bar this morning, Easter Saturday. Taupo is very busy at the moment with lots of holiday makers, but we easily got a table at brunch time. The staff were all very busy, but very welcoming. Our coffee was lovely, and the food was delicious. I had pancakes, which are described as thick and fluffy, and... More

Was in Taupo for a couple of days and decided to Victoria's based on the reviews. The selection was good. A mix of cabinet & menu food. Had a nice lunch. Food was tasty, coffee was nice & hot and the cafe had a good atmosphere. Would definitely go back next time we are in Taupo.
