We had a lovely lunch here and the coffee was great. It's got a nice view across the water. The gallery was good and I got a little keepsake to take home to remind me of a special holiday

A great selection of art, jewellery and local crafts - Vanya has an amazing eye. Next door to Legends Cafe and five minutes walk from the Taumeasina Island Resort this is well worth a visit
