We had lunch at Koru Café three times during our stay on Aitutaki. It had the best of everything, great food, great staff and internet access. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was a welcome change from eating at the resort. We would highly recommend stopping by.

What awesome food they make at this little restaurant! The Ika Mata and the Iced coffees were amazing. We went back for more and were never disappointed.

Koru Cafe's breakfasts are awesome! Their scrambled eggs are to die for. And the orange juice is good old Keri's, yum yum yum. The Cafe itself is clean, air conditioned and provides a WiFi service. Make sure you like their Facebook page for a $5 WiFi voucher!

Koru Cafe is up there as one of the best places to eat in Aitutaki. The coffee is great and the bacon and egg rolls among the best I've had anywhere! The fresh fish dishes and local produce are both healthy and delicious. Highly recommended.
