“In Town Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Found right in the main town. Menu good, I think it is great for breakfast, lunch, but evening I think over priced and other places heaps better, I have been here many times with friends, Meals not big.
For the prices I think other places are better, however the service is good food presentation is also good, yes I do go there again and again for breakfasts.

“Average cafe in Avarua”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Cafe was fairly busy, quite a few people were sat outside so we thought it must be good.
We went in for coffee and cake but there was no cakes or muffins on display to choose from!
We ordered 2 large flat whites and were really disappointed as they were weak and tasted like instant coffee. This cafe is located right in the middle of the shopping CITC shopping area so people tend to go straight to it. We would recommend that you walk a bit further and find a better place.

“Back to Cafe Salsa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

On a second visit to Rarotonga, straight back to Cafe Salsa several times for more great tasting food. Love the varied menu and reasonable prices. And many thanks to the chef who when we were on our way to the airport cooked and packed us a meal to eat on the plane (even tho it was just on closing time). That was excellent service and we shall see you next year.

Another place for good coffee - love and pancakes, great place for early morning breakfast. A busy place close to the main department store
