Love this new spot in town!! Lovely staff, yum coffee, fresh decor, modern and inviting atmosphere and new and classic items on the menu. Can't beat good hospitality. Exactly what Taupō needed!
Cafe Lacus is fast becoming my new regular. Amazing food and friendly service. I'm always on a quest for the best savoury scone and I think I've found a winner here... I love their cold brew nitro coffee too. There's loads of parking and their outdoor dining space is awesome!
Beautiful vegetarian options in the Cabinet and delicious coffee. Mixed with a gorgeous interior and awesome staff this place is definetly a new favorite!
Impressive! Awesome service from Anshika.
