This was a lovey little café that we frequented many times. The location for us, opposite the AItutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa made it so easy and the food, service and modern atmosphere made it a great choice. Definitely have a lunch or breakfast here.

This is a great cafe within walking distance of Aitutaki Lagoon Resort. The staff are wonderful and friendly and the food options are great and reasonably priced. They also sell some local artwork and the cafe is a great base to plan other activities to do on the island as they have lots of information on local activities.

Koru Cafe opens early and closes early but when you realise that you make sure you catch it for your meal or coffee. Staff very polite and friendly and menu list is extensive enough to find something to please. The little touches that impressed me was the insect repellent on the tables and burning coils outside for the insects to... More

Please please stay open for early dinner ! Great food. Breakfast is out of this world and lunches have many fresh fish choices and well as take away. Interesting specials. One day Venison was on the menu ! Fish burger rules. Nice for families.

If you love your coffee than this is the place to go on Aitutaki. We made a daily stop on our scooters, staff were super friendly and the food very tasty. We had the BBQ packs on several occasions and they were excellent.

There is nothing to dislike about Koru Cafe and EVERYTHING to like! The food was fantastic and great value for money. Everything we had from iced coffees, iced chocolates, steak sandwiches, salt & pepper squid was just awesome! The coconut cheesecake and red velvet cake are a MUST! The staff were very friendly and helpful - the owners were either... More

The food & prices were great. I suggest you sit indoors though as we got absolutely eaten by the mozzies even though we were drenched in bug spray

We really enjoyed bacon and eggs and a flat white here. The service was friendly, the food great and the pricing reasonable. We enjoyed the air conditioning and insect screens. Was a really pleasurable experience.

What a treat finding a beautiful little cafe so close to your resort where you can stop and enjoy a tasty coffee and some of their delicious home made banana bread. One day we kayaked around our island, pulled the kayaks up on the beach, walked to the cafe in our togs and reef shoes and sat down and enjoyed... More
