Our first time here we ordered a picnic basket and then hired a canoe and paddled over to a little island for a romantic lunch. I had a beef sandwich that was generously packed and it was enough to satisfy the hunger till dinner. Our next time we ate in and made use of the cheap wi-fi. I found the... More

This café is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Opens from 7am to 3pm and the food is fresh and tasty. Friendly staff also make for a pleasant visit. It's within walking distance of the Aitutaki Lagoon Resort but also worth travelling the distance from other areas on the island as well.

Loved dining there for a great toasted sandwich and coffee. Loved the pre-order BBQ packs to take home and cook yourself. The garlic/cheese bread was divine in the BBQ pack.

Great breakfasts and coffee. The service was really good. Prices are a little on the steep side but to be expected given its location.

This was our third visit to the island, we discovered Koru Cafe on our second visit (I dont think it existed on our first visit), and it was one of the first places we went to after we had unpacked our bags. I am pleased to say the food is just as good if not better. We visited the cafe... More

We frequented this café every day to enjoy really good coffee. The internet is a waste of money however, so slow it takes beyond the 15 minutes you get for your $5 to load up anything other than basic web mail. Service and food very good so enjoy the café side of the business.

We ate at Koru many times during our stay in Aitutaki. Katrina and Steve were great hosts with many helpful ideas on tours. We found the food to be extremely fresh with good variety and matching prices. They also offer wine and beer. Cannot recommend enough.
