We enjoyed this cafe and the friendly staff. If you want your coffees and teas hot don't forget to ask as most travellers seem to like prefer a more tepid cuppa in the heat of the day. Good food.

We went to Koru Café a couple of times whilst on Aitutaki. The iced coffee is delicious and the food great. They have internet access, which is a plus for those who need to keep in contact with home. The staff are friendly and the service very good. I highly recommend a visit there if you visit Aitutaki.

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.

Great little cafe with delicious cake and milkshakes. The best part though was getting the Cook Islands book and the Atiu Coffee from here for our souvenirs. Our hotel was sold out of the book and apparently it is really difficult to find the Atiu Coffee outside of that island. Popular spot, but we were able to secure a nice... More
