Loved the food here , especially the breakfast ! Meal portions are small for what you pay for but it's nice to escape the Tongan food when you miss your home food . Service is okay .... It's nice to surf the net whilst waiting for a meal on the wireless which is always a plus for me as I take my iPad everywhere ! See you next time

Service here leaves a lot to be desired. A pricey place to eat. Dishes are not the Tongan size that you will get most places. You could definitely walk away hungry if you spend less than AU$20 or 40 Pa'anga. The deserts are nice but not gourmet quality. There are many other places for a nice lunch but if aircon is more important than food then this is the best choice. The food is good but not great.

This is Friends with air-con, as other reviewers have noted, with good café fare and wonderful air-con if you’ve been sweating it out around town. But the menu is less varied and relies heavily on pannini and wraps, and Friends wins hands down in the ambience stakes. Service is also a little down here, especially at the counter, but they do have good coffee and this is still a top spot for breakfast or lunch.

During our time in Tonga we ate here each day for lunch, amazing sandwiches, wraps and salads and if you really want to treat yourself there are freshly made cakes and muffin - Yummy!

Have things on the meny you would not expect here, as little as a descent Internetconnection which they happen to have.
Great staff, food is by far best on the island. Mix between well-off locals and tourists. A bad weather day - this is a great choice!
