Massive meal. Holy Moly

I just wished Koru cafe was open for dinner and was within waddling distance of my resort (that's right waddling, because the club sandwich is so big i probably wouldn't be walking straight) Ditch all your other plans and try this place.

We ate here a lot on our holiday:) BBQ packs are good to cook at your accommodation - the staff are very friendly with great Tourist Books to browse. The choice was lovely for Breakfast or Lunch and the food is fresh and made with care. Great cafe.

Good menu range, takeaway or eat in available. The premises were clean and the staff were friendly. They do breakfast and lunch. You can apparently also order BBQ packs from them to take back to your accommodation to cook (didn't try this).

We stopped here after a long bike ride and had lunch, and all I can say was how impressed I was with the freshness and preparation of the food. I know it's only lunch, but the staff was pleasant and very helpful, the food quality excellent and the prices very reasonable. Eat here

This is undoubtedly the best Caffè on the island, the food is perfect feels like you are in New Zealand not on a little isolated island in the Pacific. Food is exiting, healthy, good portions and reasonable prices. This is a place you must visit when you are in aitutaki! Trinas parents have free range chicken farm and their eggs... More

Really good breakfast if you don’t feel like cooking. Friendly service and to my mind a no brainer for Breakfast on Aitutaki. No views but you have them 24/7 anyway on this island. Certainly my choice and I can recommend it highly.

Friendly service and tasty food are the hallmarks of this cafe. The breakfasts are second to none on the Island.

After spending a morning at the beach, Koru Cafe is a great place to go for lunch. The octagon-shaped building had about 8 tables inside and a handful more outside on the veranda that ringed the entire building. Service was stellar! The two girls serving were both very friendly, outgoing and attentive! Food was Fantastic! We shared a HUGE fish... More

Amazing little cafe on the east side of the lagoon. Not on the water, but it doesn't need to be with the food it serves. Fab ice coffees too, for those pretty hot days :)
