We had our first meal here as it was a Saturday and most things are closed. We had tuna sliders & fries they were delicious I would definitely recommend popping in for a meal :)

So good! We rode bikes here every day from the Lagoon Resort and Spa to get lunch. Would have come for dinner if they were open! Its a family run place and the girls that work there are amazing!!

Had a few meals here during our Aitutaki stay. Food is always good, with good breakfast and lunch options. Missed seeing Trina this trip - her hospitality is something we have loved on previous trips. We'll definitely return though. It's no surprise this cafe remains at #1. A great spot. (Ps Congrats Trina and Steve 😊)

We both had nice tasty meals at Koru Cafe. A couple of things we noticed, the prices were very expensive(not unusual on Aitutaki). Also, like other restaurants on Aitutaki, there seems to be a reluctance to use local food.

Love this little cafe, located on the airport side of the island. Sadly the coffee machine was not working, so we weren't able to sample their hot or cold coffee drinks. However, the sandwiches were excellent, and I loved the bread that is made on site. Definitely worth visiting when on Aitutaki.
