This place made the best frappaccino I have ever had. They call it a frozen mochaccino. There is a location at the market in Avarua and they also have a location in the international terminal at the airport.

We had coffee here a few times and couldn't make up our minds as to which of the two vans had the better coffee. There is another Reefside at Cook's Corner bus stop.

I'm picky about my cappuccinos and this place always delivered. I became a "regular" during my 2 week stay and not ashamed to say that Starbucks back home ain't got nothin' on Reefside. Thanks for the quality caffeination guys.
