Yummy coffees can be found at Zest Deli Cafe. My top order is their flat white or cappuccino, with a macaroon treat on the side. The staff are always super friendly and it's a great place to bump into the locals. Love it!

The atmosphere here is inviting and friendly... and of course the food and coffee is just as special. There is loads of parking outside and my favourite part is that as it's away from the centre of town, it's nice and chilled and is a well-kept secret.

I love all things food and Zest Deli Cafe offers a beautiful variety of fresh baking, healthy salads, amazing coffee and hot chocolates. There's a friendly buzzing atmosphere at the cafe and the staff are great, the service exceptional and you definitely can't fault the food. If you want a delicious latte or mocha, try Zest!

The Caesar salad at Zest is the best in Taupo, and I should know, I’ve tried them all. Generous amount of free range chicken and bacon, plus the croutons are the mother of all croutons. So good.

A nice wide variety of savoury counter items to choose from and extra menu items as well. Always a relief to have a choice of delicious looking things when you are gluten free. Super coffee too. #darkhorse

Amazing eggs benedict and mushrooms on toast. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and the coffees are pretty good too. This place is consistent in its food and service and does not disappoint. Check it when you're next out for a coffee. And you have to try their cake selection too - absolutely divine!

Awesome service and super yum food! Brocoli salad changed my life and their Caesar puts other Caesars to shame! Allpress coffee all the way.

best eggs bene in the galaxy! If you ask Neil nicely, he might draw you a special picture on your take away cup!

It's a big call but I'm sticking with it! Great service, excellent coffee; best eggs bene ever. The end!
