We ate here so many times during our week-long visit that it became a joke with the staff. Everything bar one item (the chicken summer rolls) was amazing. I particularly recommend the omelette - out of this world. The caesar salad was also great and my friend nearly died over her garlic lobster. Lovely staff and service, and I really dug the female-focused art and decor. I'm not sure how intentional it was but it was great seeing parts of a country's history with a focus on its women rather than the usual!

The biggest part of my enjoyment at friends cafe was the staff. The staff are so friendly, it really lives up to the name. I went there almost everyday and found the staff really cared about their service, the food was excellent but what really stood out for me was the staff. They asked us if we we wanted refills for our drinks and offered us tea and coffee and cake after dinner, the price was not too bad. I'm not a tipper but I tipped them everytime. Thank you staff of friends for the best dining experience in Tonga I will be coming back there all the time
