We had many an enjoyable lunch in Koru, the food and staff are great, the coffee is excellent. If you are looking for a quick lunch or brunch you really can't go past Koru

We went over to Aitutaki Village most days and stopped in to Koru for a coffee and cake. It was THE BEST coffee on the island by far. The cake was pecan and banana and was so delicious. Perfect host too !!......Highly recommend if you miss good coffee
