Voted Lonely Planet's No 1 café 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. Allow yourself time to experience something very unique and special! A trip to L’Arté is a visual and edible feast and unlike anything you have experienced before. The café and gallery are both set in a magical garden, complete with an outside mosaic living room.
