Came here with family. We ordered four regular coffees and three juices to start with, the two juices came out and only two of the coffees (the bill came back with us being charged for four large coffees) . We had to remind them about the two coffees they'd forgotten about.
We then ordered food, one being a ham & cheese omelet with mushrooms, this came out as a ham & cheese omelet with a side of mushrooms. A pancake stack came out without the extra bacon & banana we ordered, this was even after we repeated the order as they had messed up earlier. Then the bill came out charging is incorrectly with additional items.
This place lived up to our very very low expectations. We also noted a couple who ordered but then left without even touching their food. I wish we had taken their lead.
All in all, the food and coffee is terrible. Then the service is really poor also. Avoid this place to avoid disappointment.

Amen to all the other comments. Terrible service, poor food, the air con is always on full blast and you sit there with a constant draught. Coffee Club you should be ashamed of yourself. We don't need a sub standard eatery here in Taupo. People expect a decent coffee, friendly and prompt service and an inviting atmosphere. You miss the mark on everything :(

No wonder this place is ranked near the bottom of Taupo restaurants.
Food average & service SO slow !
Eggs on Eggs Benedict so overcooked they were inedible- Omelette looked dry - not nice & fluffy like an omelette should be.Bircher Muesli ok as were sausages & (pkt) Hash Brown.Coffee only so-so.
Main drawback was the wait - 50 mins last Sunday - this is just totally unacceptable especially when restaurant only averagely busy- no-one said there would be such a long wait & observing whilst we waited & waited all meals took a long time to come out.

Only place that's never busy.. Food tasted like it had been in the case for weeks. Coffee was very average :( we're given a voucher for 10% off a breakfast but wont be going back - sorry Coffee Club - slow service when we're the only patrons was the least of your worries
