This place has good food and large portions. However they are only open on Sundays till 3. But that can be a good thing as not a lot of the smaller places are open on Sunday. I had the chicken burger and it was very good and large. The second time I had the chicken wrap it was also very... More

If you go here you definitely need to get the Pineapple Meringue pie it is too die for. Its best when you heat it up for 30 seconds.

Nice place to stop for a coffee & cake in our travels around the 32km Rarotonga ring road. Pleasant atmosphere & staff. Only problem is ...... they're only open on Sundays!

Just loved the fish sandwiches here, so did the kids. Better than ones we had at The Mooring (though they were pretty good too) and better value. Great selection of sweets too though we didn't sample any, they looked amazing. Shame it's only open Sunday's as we stayed just down the road so would definitely have gone back for more!

Great fish sandwiches with a bit of variation to others we tried around the island. The caramelised onions and tasty salad and dressing provided a good point of difference. We went there twice - first time to give it a try having passed it in the week when it was closed, then the second time because it was so good... More

This is one of our favourite cafe's in Rarotonga. We always make a point to keep a Sunday afternoon free so we can visit Tumeke, as they are only open on Sunday and good on them. This time we sampled the Pineapple Pie with our coffee's. Cuzz you gotta' try it, you wont regret it.

Hard to get excited about the fish sandwich at Kai Tumeke if you have tried Charlie’s Café & Beach Hire in Titikaveka. It’s only a short drive further around the coast to Charlie's (close to Little Polynesian Resort) and at Charlie’s you will find a far superior fish sandwich for only $12 which is huge and will generally feed two....

Ate here on my first day in Raro and was ruined for food for the rest of the time! Had the most amazing fish burger and really wish I had asked what kind of fish it was. Only open on Sundays though but what a fantastic cafe!
