I was going to abstain from coffee during my holiday until I went to Koru Cafe. I just couldn't resist, and it was worth it. I got a take away chicken sandwich and that was delicious. A nice change from the fried food on the island.

We stayed close to Koru and would regularly visit here for a coffee fix! Very good coffee and dessert! I regret not getting a meal here though cause the menu looked good! We had free breakfast at our accomodation so couldn't waste that to get breakfast at Koru. Kara usually makes the coffee and she's very friendly. Next time we... More

We skipped the continental breakfast offered by our hotel to come here every morning and enjoy the delicious coffees, homemade breads and wonderful breakfasts among the classiest art and people on the island. What a find!

We had a couple of breakfasts and lunches here. Nothing to complain about at all. Great food and generous servings. Highly recommend it. We were lucky that it was within easy walking distance for us from where we were staying (Samade).

Amazing food, very enjoyable and priced ok as far as cost in Aitutaki, very big servings so might be an idea to go halves

The bacon is amazing and the banana fruit smoothie. If you're sitting outside watch out for the chickens - they jumped on our food a few times.

What a pleasant surprise it was to discover the Kiru Cafe on Aitutaki. Great food, perfect coffee and excellent service. It's the equivalent of what you'd get at a high quality cafe in Auckland or Sydney. Keep up the good work Koru crew !
