Still very good

I have always had good food at this little café across the road for the airport. This time my husband had a custard square which I tried and for the first time ever I must say that I enjoyed a custard square..... so totally agree you do the best in Raro!

This place has great coffee and snacks. The service is exemplary, to the point we left our wallet in the cafe before flying to Aitutaki. Blossom went out of her way to pay and organise for it to be flown over to us and follow up to confirm it had been received. We are so grateful and will be back... More

We found this place just average. Coffee drinks and tea were good. My custard square was just ok. It was too sweet and sugary for me. Hubby also did not like his chocolate cake. He said it was too dense and sugary. He feed it to the roosters. I didn't finish my slice. This café is located across the street... More

Desperate for a decent coffee after the disappointments of our resort we stopped in here after driving past it many times. Doesn't look much from road but looks are often deceptive as we found out. Lovely lunch option with reasonably priced, tasty food and GOOD coffee. We wanted to try their custard squares (advertised as best in Raro!!) but unfortunately... More

I stopped in one day after needing a decent coffee, and that's exactly what I got, the coffee is fantastic and the custard squares are delicious. They have a full menu too and I had breakfast there one day and that as well was perfect, good service, great coffees, and the best custard squares on the island!
