I walked up to the RLS museum and back, so was in here twice. I had breakfast on the way up - good coffee but the potatoes in the Berlin breakfast could have done with some more crunch. People friendly and I loved the eclectic stuff with which the cafe is decorated. On the way back, it was mid afternoon,... More

This eclectic spot is a must on your trips to Apia! We had breakfast included in our accommodations but we opted to bunch one day here because we had enjoyed it so much when we stumbled upon it during our last visit. Food was well prepared with healthy portions and the coffee selection was on point! We will be back!

Home Cafe was part of the NZ and Samoa Friendship Week 2016 Restaurant Challenge - and how lucky was I to be part of that! I relished the "Friendship Stack" - tomatoes, feta, Polish sausage, olives, palusami egg dipped buns and more... yummy yummy.... The decor was well......out of this world.....filled with collectibles of all types...real crazy stuff....very unusual...and worthy... More

I've only eaten all day breakfast there - grea tvegie dish and also the fruit and muesli. Coffee is good too and the eclectic setting next to the Vaisignano river. Take some books to read with you when you go to the beach

Love it. Very retro . Reminds me of the hippie commune in Copenhagen! Friendly staff and very quirky ...lots of interesting bits to look at and think about upcycling yourself back home! PS I'm 63.

home cafe is very deceiving on the outside. What looks like a warehouse on the outside, is a cool, inviting and well decorated interior. There is always live music at night and the back outdoor area has fairy lights, couches and tables. It was a go-to place for my family during our 2 week stay. Great atmosphere!
