First Stop After the Airport!

Great food. Awesome coffees! This being our second trip to Aitutaki, we already knew the good food available at the Koru Café, so we went straight there for breakfast. Did not disappoint!

This lovely little cafe consistently delivered great food and coffee that kept us going while we sailed the lagoon. Great value, friendly staff, and delicious menus.

Koru is the place to go to on Aitutaki for good coffee and great café-style lunches. They also do handy packs for taking lunch to one of the motu, or for self-catering back at your accommodation. The fish burger is always good!

We stopped into Koru Cafe for a lunch time bite. We had beautifully fresh fish, that was absolutely delicious. While we were there we noticed they had a dinner deivery service. We ordered a couple of curries for dinner and a pasta salad - could not recommend enough if you are looking to have a night in!

Every day my husband and I had coffee, iced mocha, garlic and Parmesan bread with seared fish tapas, Caesar salad, steak burger etc. We were never disappointed! Miss it now that we are back in Raro :(

One of the things missing from the Cook Islands is real Coffee. But we finally found quality coffee here at the Koru Cafe. We stopped in for lunch which was delicious too! But after two weeks with no real caffeine - the highlight had to be the espresso.
