Like many previous people have reviewed, its a great little nook to people watch while stopping in town to shop. But more-so it has wi-fi. The servers are friendly, but do not provide you the passwords, rather politely request your device from which they put in the password, and then continue on to the next person in your group( only...

It's a nice little cafe in vaitape. It's kind of the only spot to get wifi in vaitape. So I do understand the people who work there probably get annoyed with all the tourists just wanting to use the wifi and not ordering that much.. It's pretty expensive (well it is bora bora) but the juices and cappuccino are very... More

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.

If you take a trip into Vaitape for shopping and what not, i recommend you stop by this little cozy nook for some refreshing drinks and eats. We sopped by here and decided to get some panini sandwiches and cold beers after a day of shopping and hanging out. The staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable. Good sized... More

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 decided to explore Vaitape - main island of Bora Bora and were lucky to find Aloe cafe - nice place appreciated both by locals and tourists. We had lunch there, menu offers american (burger, sandwich, fries), european (chicken, beef) and tahitian (tuna, fish specials) cuisine - and it is amazing! The prices are average compared with other restaurant on... More
