When I walked in there was no visible menu to speak of the decor is not welcoming, basically you sit outside after you get your drinks.

My husband and I ate here for breakfast. The food was good and perfect for what we were looking for. The reason for the 4 stars was the seating is limited. Because of this the smokers next to us were bothersome. Thankfully we were almost done with our meal when they began smoking.

This is an easy spot to duck into when you are downtown in Vaitape doing some "touristy things". WiFi available. Quick service. Good tasting paninis. Fun for people watching.

there aren't too many restaurants in vaitape and most restaurants offer mainly French cuisine so finding a casual establishment with a diverse menu was worth the boat trip from the resort. portions look a bit small though the bread and salad ahead of the meal did the trick.

We dropped by here and ordered spaghetti bolagnese, chicken panini, salade de chevrettes et thon (shrimp & ahi), and a club sandwich. Each item was $17 USD, but the spaghetti was the best bargain. It was a huge portion for the price. All of the food was very good. Our waitress was super friendly and nice. She typed in the... More

We stopped at Aloe Cafe after visiting town to shop one afternoon. The place was very busy! They have outdoor seating and service was very good. Drinks were reasonably priced.
