I went to a cafe down this street and opposite Friends and next to a bar. It was great. Vittoria coffee...with a hibiscus flower in the milk, banana split and nice friendly relaxed staff. Best coffee in town - hope this is the right one. I thought it was icafe or similar.

We found that little Café while walking in Nuku'alofa and it was very nice indeed! The food was good, they have Thai, vegetarian, Tongan, etc. And it didn't take too long to be served. The price was also very reasonable for the quality.

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

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!
