“Best Coffee - this is the coffee I was looking for”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

I saw a 3 dot comment about this place that didn't rate the coffee so wasted my money and time on 5 (five) other cafes around the island before trying Cafe Jireh. We had 8 more days on Rarotonga and bought coffee there every day except Sunday (lots of places close on Sundays on Raro) and didn't go to any other cafe after that.
This is paradise: coffee at Jireh first thing and then snorkel in the lagoon off Fruits of Rarotonga and/or "The Rarotongan Resort".
Anyway, did I mention the coffee? Mellow and smooth. Apparently most of the coffee on the island is roasted by the one company; the difference is that Jireh make ambrosia out of theirs and the others we tried didn't manage it.
Thanks Blossom.

“Yummy Cakes!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Came here a few times for coffee and cake. The coffee was fantastic, as was the hot chocolate my daughter got one day. And the cakes were even better - so much selection, and all of them delicious.

I would recommend bringing friends so you can share all the different cakes and slices!

“Great food, Excellent Coffee”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Visited this cafe last year on the recommendation of a friend, and was a must visit on our return trip this year. Lovely food, generous portions, something for all the family, and great coffee! Look forward to visiting again next year....
