Cafe Salsa was a great stop for a glass of iced tea during our excursions in Avarua. A glass of freshly brewed ice tea was only $3.50. Service was great and friendly despite us only having a cold drink. The tea was very good and enough to refresh and let us get on our way again.

We stopped here for an iced tea while shopping and roaming Avarua. Nice comfortable sidewalk cafe where you can relax and enjoy watching people walking by. The iced tea was very good and menu choices and food looked very nice. wouldn't hesitate to dine here for brekkie or lunch.

The smoked marlin hash is a great way to start the day. A shared lunch with a friend is a reasonable price for a delicious pizza and salad

This cafe was ok. We only stopped in for a cold drink as they didn't have a high chair! Bit disappointed, we would have eaten here if they had one.
