The sign saying raros best custard squares pulled us in. They weren't quite as good as the ones back in nz but were still good. We all enjoyed our meals. I particularly liked that everything was made in house.

The sign outside the door entices you to go in. 'the best Custard slices in Raro' They had 2 different toppings. One was plain vanilla incing, the other was a passion fruit icing. the passionfruit was really good, different flavour. The service was average. The brunch food average, their sweets are very outstanding.

Stopped here for a quick bit to eat for lunch one day. Not a lot of choice but home made and fresh, good serving size, quality food.

The coffee was fantastic but the custard squares were average (on the sweet side). Service was quick and we did go back again for the coffee!

They advertise as having the best custards squares in Rarotonga. I tried no one else's but they were great here. Went another day and had a great coffee. Meals looked delicious and I received a recommendation for a restaurant for dinner and it turned out to be great too

We had a good ham sandwich here. And great slice of carrot cake. It is across from the airport so if you had time and wanted something light you could get it here before your flight.

Just across the road from the Raro airport terminal, this is now our one-stop shop for breakfast, great coffee, lunch and a stack of tasty treats to take back to your holiday home for dinner/dessert. We stuffed ourselves on the amazing custard squares - the ones with passionfruit icing are tropical heaven - and a ginger crunch like mum used... More

Stopped of her whilst trying to load up with a lunch spread for the family. Seemed to have a reasonable spread but everything had meat in it. When i tried to get a vegetarian sandwich they just took a ham sandwich off the rack and took the ham off! Sorry guys but thats pretty poor behaviour and pretty ignorant!
