I’m a secret fan of custard tarts but having read about these custard slices I just had to try one on our latest trip. And I have to admit – they are very good indeed.

Saw a sign on our first day saying 'best custard squares on the island'. Stopped in on one of our days when we were passing. Custard squares were nice but nothing special and at $4.90 each I won't be rushing back. Service was average also.

This little cafe boasts it sells the best custard slices on the island..... I have to agree with that ! We decided we had to try one before we left the island and I am so glad we did. It was well worth it ! Their coffee was also pretty good !

We always have brekkies and brunch here when in Raro and it is always good. Divine French Toast, and good eggs. The baking is delicious too, we ordered a cake from here for a birthday and it was sublime. Great shakes too, definitely try it!

Coffee was not warm enough and tables not as clean as we thought they should be. Food did not look that welcoming but it was mid afternoon when we were there so benefit of the doubt to the Cafe.
