Simply called THE CAFE - in the Courtyard of the Beachcomber Building, East of the traffic circle in Avarua you will find one of the best Cafes on Rarotonga. Owned for many years by Neil and Janet Dearlove, The Cafe is now owned by British couple Clare and Ian, who have lived many years on the Island and who always gave us a friendly welcome.
Along with the great Courtyard setting (looking out over the ocean) the coffees are made from locally freshly roasted "organic" coffee beans imported from overseas. Being frequent visitors to Rarotonga, we have never had a better coffee on the Island than at The Cafe. The food is of the freshest standard and the cakes are "to die for"!! We sampled many of the deliciously light cakes on our visit this September, including the pawpaw cake, lemon and sour cream cake, carrot cake and devine chocolate cake. If you like ginger, try their ginger slice. I hope you discover this Cafe at the beginning of your stay in Rarotonga as it will, I am sure be your favourite.
