Koru cafe remains one of our favourite places on the island, however we did feel the food wasn’t quite as good as it has been in the past - e.g steak (on platter) and fish (in sliders) both over cooked .... but we still visited...More

Nice location, just off the road. The steak sandwich was very good and filling. My wife and I split one.

BEST BREAD EVER!!! And although it was $8 a loaf, it was worth EVERY dollar. We had breakfast here on our last morning. I wish we had gone earlier in our 2 week stay becuase I would have gone back!

We had a lunch and a breakfast at Koru Cafe. We loved it! The ambiance is laid back, staff are very friendly and attentive, and food is delicious. The absolute BEST dessert of our entire trip on Rarotonga and Aitutaki was here . . ....More

We visited this cafe at least three times during our stay in Aitutaki. Tasty food and the service is quick and always friendly. We recommend ordering a refreshing ice tea and some crispy fish sliders. Good options for vegetarians. Close to the beautiful O'otu beach.
