Body Fuel is the best place we have eaten in NZ (North & South Island), and doubt it will be beaten! If you like extremely tasty, well executed, filling yet nutritious food and fab coffee - EAT HERE! We visited twice. Such an amazing balance of staple classics and Kiwi breakfast / brunch & lunch dishes, providing such tasty veggie... More

We have eaten here on many occasions and the coffee is great, but the last couple of times I've been disappointed, I had a muffin from the cabinet and it was terribly dry and crumbled all over the plate, not very pleasant to eat. I think the refrigerated cabinet is drying the cakes etc out, which is a shame as... More

I wish I was staying for longer just to come here, healthy tasty food just how it should be. Polite staff, clean and fast. If you understand proper cooking and ingredients the food truly is on another level here. I took food away with me for the coming days haha Just opposite the Isite bus drop off.

We stopped here for lunch because it was opposite the bus stop we were leaving from that afternoon. I'd just had a terrific volcano flight with Taupo's Floatplanes and we were hungry. Completely wowed by the quality of the food. The Acai salad with fresh fruit was terrific. Definitely try this place.

We were in town for a long weekend and the place was packed. The food cabinets were still full though. The staff were working like a well oiled machine. We ordered off the menu for breakfast as well as coffees. The coffee was sooo good. The food was a little pricey but there was a lot of it and it... More

I whole heartedly wish they still kept the rocket fuel sauce on the tables . British breakfast and contemporary foods available on a big menu . I always go for the BFG (Body Fuel Grill) and add savoury mince , staff are friendly , though it's a little pricey 👍🏼

My partner and I had breakfast here and was soooooo good ! Lots of gluten free dairy free options, the options on the menu are great and the cabinet food was a feast for the eyes, highly recommend eating here, just wish we had found it at the start of our stay.

I had such a good lunch at this place. I wanted to substitute two ingredients with two others and the staff was so flexible and cheerful. The carrot cranberry muffins are delicious and they have free filtered water! My main dish was cooked perfectly and gave me energy for the entire afternoon. Just one more reason to return to Taupo!... More
