“our favorite morning hangout”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Lisa runs a very smooth operation. Beside serving up delicious food at reasonable prices, she has the best Internet in town, a terrific library on Tongan subjects, and an efficient laundry operation. She can answer any question you have about anything. The location couldn't be more convenient.

A good place to meet people. There is good food and you can buy bread wholemeal & white and pies and few other supplies if you want a picnic.

“Has everything, including fabulous food”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Delicious food. Great breakfast/dinner pies...we bought and froze several. Lisa, owner, knows and has all the Neiafu info you need, including cruising charts. Internet is the fastest. We were always welcome and could stay as long as we wanted. The staff is wonderful. If we could choose only one restaurant in Neiafu, Cafe Tropicana would be the one.

“Owner Extraordinaire”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

The owner of this fine establishment was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful!! We had very tight travel plans and the ferry personal were being "difficult" he was very helpful and helped us get to our destination. I could not have done it without him.
