“Lovely coffee, beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

We recently enjoyed a very pleasant, simple lunch at this lovely cafe. It has the most beautiful setting in the historic (restored) Beachcomber building - which is worth a visit for its own sake. Very good coffee, simple freshly-made food, friendly service, ocean views and a good selection of magazines make this cafe a regular stop whenever we are in Rarotonga. There is an art gallery and a couple of other shops in the same building so you can browse after eating. One of the best coffee spots on the island.

“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

The Cafe roasts and grinds their own coffee and is some of the best on the island. Their bagel sandwiches for breakfast are also very nice. You can also visit the art gallery while you are there.

Big portions, good coffee and beautiful view through the courtyard of the sea. One of my favourite places on the island.

“Good smoothies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

I like the smoothies here best of all. The cakes are freshly baked, and delicious.

The location is handy to TAV's downtown store and the adjacent Beachcomber gallery.
