Feels like this is a little piece of 'home' when we visit Aitutaki. Nowhere else on the island serves Batista coffee like Koru does. We especially loved the coconut cheesecake the WiFi and the BBQ packs you preorder and cook at home. This is our 5th visit to the island and Koru Cafe always delivers perfection. A big thanks from...

This small little place is an excellent option for a quick lunch, the food is excellent with fresh fish and interesting experiments of local healty hamburger. prices are average compared with the one of the island, and the informal setting is great after the beach, recommended with honors

We used to take the bicycle and drive to Koru, because we enjoyed it so much, the Coffee’s and Smoothies and also the food, everything was great. The staff are amazing and we missed the café when it was closed we loved it so much  If you stay in Aitutaki, the Koru is a must!

We were tired of the Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa resort food and were looking for some variety when we s Discovered this little gem. A very good lunch time venue with a very good menu (and food) and a better wine selection than the resort. The service was also very good.

During our stay on Aitutaki, we cycled to Koru Cafe for lunch. We were spoilt for choice, as there was such a good menu. The tuna sushi was sooo fresh, and the fish sandwiches in home made bread, were scrumptious. My son had a slice of the best chocolate cake I've tried in a while. Good coffee, and excellent milk...

On our day on Aitutaki, and on the recommendation of Vane, at Aitataki Escape, we had breakfast at the Koru Café. We ate there a number of times while on the island and also tried one of the marinated BBQ packs. The food was delicious and Trina and Steve were great hosts. The café is an absolute must while you’re... More
