Stopped in to enjoy a cup of coffee while we were on island time. It was great coffee, but it was the end of the day and not much left to eat. Nice environment though. Happy to recommend this to others!

This is a surprise in Rarotonga with lovely food, a great wine list and I think, some of the best coffee to be had in Raro. Friendly staff and reasonably priced food.

We walked past this place a couple of times and it was shut. Called in for a morning coffee and...ok we shared a chocolate tart. Great coffee and the tart was excellent. The food delivered to other tables looked very good. We’ll be back!

thanks for this 5-star review. We're happy we pleased your taste buds. Yes our location and our building are not the most appeals on the island, but we try to compensate by cooking with love everyday.
