We frequented at the Kora Cafe as we had no vehicle and there was no where close to our accom at Popoara ocean breeze to buy food supplies. The coffee was great as was their food and service. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here. I had the special, which was soft fish tacos. Delicious! Lovely setting even if it's not beachfront. Very friendly service. Appreciated the insect repellent provided at each table.

Visited for coffee/lunch (fish sliders) and again for breakfast. Lovely staff and ambience. Very good coffee and excellent eggs and homemade bread with a tomato salsa. Good serves and value for money.

While we didn't get to eat at Koru we saw the food- wow looked great. We did have a few coffees and can't speak highly enough for the staff and coffee. Well worth the ride.

Only open for lunch or dinner on Friday nights. We drove past a few times over our stay and finally stopped for lunch. The Sharing Platter was delicious, with plenty of choices, the highlight being the raw marinated beef strips! Tranquil location with chickens wandering...More
