Great coffee, in fact the best coffee we had while in Tonga Friendly staff and the location was good as very central. Reasonable prices for Tonga and the food was nice.

The Beach Hut has moved from the wharf and now is located adjacent to the Molisi grocery and across the street from the Nuku'alofa central market. The friendly atmosphere, good coffee and excellent food that was offered remains as before. A purchase gives you free WiFi access through the Digicel HotSpot system that seems pretty fast, at least relative to... More

This cafe, which had an excellent reputation when it was located near the wharf has now relocated to town just around the corner from the main business street. It is competition for the well-established Friends Cafe just around the corner, and is well worth seeking out. Their coffee is excellent, and their simple menu is delicious, but the real charm...

A very cute and tidy little cafe tucked away in the corner of town. Stopped in for a milkshake on our walk through town. Menu looked delicious and well priced and the staff were lovely.

Just next to the Molisi supermarket in Salote Rd is a clean bright cafe which in the heat was the perfect stop for a drink. Modern, clean & bright & great friendly staff with a really delicious fresh looking menu. We had the lime water & the lime & papaya water drinks on offer. Both made with fresh juice &... More
