Voted Lonely Planet‘s No 1 cafe pick for the Central North Island and one of the top 10 places to visit in New Zealand. L’Arté Café and Gallery is not to be missed when visiting Taupo. The café and gallery are both set in a magical, art filled garden, complete with an outside mosaic living room.

Discover a dream world of extraordinary dimensions in this tranquil mosaic-filled haven. As you wander through the pathways of art and creativity, nestled in the mature garden, you will soon discover the most unique New Zealand gallery. Judi’s passion and innovation for her work and surroundings make L’Arté Café and Gallery a visual delight that keeps growing and changing with every new project. Attached to the gallery is the working pottery studio. This is where Judi’s inspiration becomes reality. Living the creative process, her work is always changing as she explores the possibilities of the medium she is working with and pushes all the boundaries.

L’Arté Café and Gallery serves Allpress coffee, has a wonderful selection of New Zealand wines and beers and the excellent service exceeds all expectations. With New Zealand‘s finest produce, the kitchen team at L’arté produce everything fresh on-site. L’Arté Café and Gallery is a special holiday experience that will stay with you.
