Early morning solo travelling made all the better by the warmth of staff, food, and fire at this excellent waterfront cafe.

I was able to enjoy my long black and generous omelette while watching the Fifa World Cup, reading a newspaper, and soaking up the warmth of the fire.

The breakfast menu was extensive and the servings generous and served piping hot - thank you for warming the plate!

Had a breakfast stop here after a recommendation from a motel worker. Service was great and staff very international and friendly.
Only thing was maybe the meals are slightly too big, but man well cooked. Keep up the good work

I would say that Dixie's stole my heart from my first visit.

I'm a local and go many times and of course it isn't perfect 100% (more just the long wait), it definitely is worth it.

Food is always fresh and exactly how it is described!
Service is well-done with a great atmosphere.

Definitely my favorite in Taupo so far.

Called in for breakfast and was seated next to a French couple. A waiter, also French, came across and asked them "c'est Bon?" The woman responded "superbe! Absolument!" And it was. This is a beautifully presented restaurant. The staff were prompt, professional and personable. When not serving tables, they were cleaning them, or the widows, or otherwise engaged in doing things. The owner should be very proud of this place. And my poached eggs? Superbe! Absolument!
