L'Arte, Taupo

(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
A quirky little cafe and eatery, L'Arte remains best known for its mosaic garden meticulously crafted by ceramic artist Judi Brennan over a number of years. These vibrant sculptures, including an outdoor living room, provide a unique setting to enjoy your meal, prepared fresh on site. The cafe offers an all-day breakfast menu and a large selection of beers and wines. Stop by the small deli if you'd like to bring some of the food home.
