We had our breakfast in Koru. My local friend told me this is his favorite restaurant in the Cook Islands. The food was really good. and service was also good. Unfortunately, their coffee machine was broken that day.

This is a typical relaxing coffee shop with excellent service, great coffee and good food. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. We only went for the first time on our last day, otherwise we would have gone every day!

Friendly staff with a varied menu and good service. Only place we found on the island with gluten free bread. Location is close to O'oru beach which is good for safe swimming

Koru cafe is a great casual lunch or breakfast spot near Ootu beach. The fresh baked bread is delicious and they even have fresh gluten free bread, maybe the only place on the island with GF bread period. Scrambled eggs were fluffy, bacon crisp, sausages tasty and nicely cooked. They are only open until 3PM so don't miss out.

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
