Fantastic Yellowfin Tuna Sandwich and prawns :)

Great coffee. and the best prawns my (new) Wife has ever tasted. Must be good as we normally swap half way through our meals so we both get to taste a different dish but on this occasion she was reluctant.

Their coffee is very good, and their meals are always satisfying, and delicious. The coffee is a bit more expensive than other venues on the island, but I don't... More

Lovely food, great people. We visited the Koru cafe a number of times while we stayed at the Aitutaki lagoon resort. Big city coffee and food in paradise.
