Good food and very pleasant surrounds. Atmosphere a bit 'expat' though. Worth a try if you've exhausted 'Friends'!

I got the special fish which was masimasi with coconut cream and rice w/a salad. I wish I had gotten a lot more salad. It was only a few bites. But the flavors were nice and I would eat there again. I got an energy muffin to go for my trip out of Tonga the next day. It was quite... More

If you are traveling to Nuku'alofa and need a vegetarian meal - this is the cafe for you! Many options including options for vegans! Great food, cool aircon.

Best cafe we went to in Tonga. Air conditioned comfort! Clean tidy and interesting. Good range of menu choices and cabinet food. Meals very well presented and good portion sizes. Maily western style food with a Tongan touch. Recommended

Good coffeee, good service, beautifully presented and tasty food make this place a good choice. The prices are a bit high but the place has an overall upscale look and feel to match. We knew of other places to go but went back for more coffee and food so we voted with our money!

The service here is slick, orders are taken efficiently, but you are given plenty of time to choose. Portions are very generous and the great escape breakfast was massive! Coffee also excellent and the food came out all at once and quickly. The staff are all smiles and can't do enough for you. Highly recommend especially on a very hot... More

We had several visits to Escape cafe during our stay in Nuku Alofa. The air conditioning was a big hit, as was the Internet access. This said the highlight is still the great menu that catered for the whole family, tasty food and very efficient service. Top marks.
