We went to this cafe for breakfast while we waited for the ferry. The first cashier we had did not speak english much, the next was slightly better. We ordered scrambled eggs with bacon, and the food was just ok. Coffee was not what i...More

nice place for a drink or casual meals, from early morning to evening, with good food. Located above the Moorea ferries dock, it is ideal located to have a meal before or after crossing the channel or just relax while watching the busy docks and...More

It can be difficult to find a sensible alternative to the hotel breakfast experience, and this cafe on the first floor of the Papeete ferry terminal is a great find. Overlooking the ferry port, with an obstructed view of Moorea, this is an open, bright...More
