Great food, open early for breakfast, awesome calamari and such friendly service. If you do a taxi to one of the islands for the day make sure you get your picnic lunch from Koru Cafe.

Everything they do is good quality. Coffee, shakes, sandwiches, but expensive though. Like for example a BLT (bacon-letuce-tomato) sandwich will be $13 and comes without fries or anything. Drinks around $5.

We were so looking forward to returning to the Koru Café – and they did not disappoint.
During our 7 day stay on the island we visited the café 5 times (for breakfast, morning tea and lunch) and had BBQ takeaway twice.

It's a great cafe with good choices and consistently good food.
Trina and staff make you feel very welcome. The minute you sit down you are brought a bottle of water and more when that runs out. Insect repellent is on the tables. The service is fantastic.
My favourite this trip was the coconut cheesecake. It was divine. The marinated takeout steaks were also really delicious. Really great idea – it was great being able to BBQ these at our accommodation (Etu Moana).

Salads are good especially the Greek salad. We also recommend the steak sandwich... and sticky date pudding ... The pasta also very good! I loved the banana smoothie...
Some reviewers have said the food is overpriced – it’s not - it is well priced for the quality of food, the service and atmosphere.

Compared to other places on the island that claim to be 5star and don’t meet the expectations Koru Café consistently delivers great quality food and exceptional service
Only sorry we missed our breakfast on our last day cause of the rain. Can't wait to go back.

We went to Koru Cafe for lunch on our last day in Aitutaki, (the cafe had been closed due to annual holidays) and had the best meal I had on our whole holiday! The prawn and Glass Noodle Salad was delicious, washed down by the best iced coffees in the South Pacific. We also took away a BBQ Pack for our dinner back at Etu Moana. You can order from a wide selection of meats and salads, we ordered Tuna steaks and Mediterranean Salad, which we cooked on the resort BBQ, and had dinner on our balcony overlooking the postcard perfect views of the Aitutaki Lagoon. Bliss!!
