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!

We stopped by for coffee several times, which we took to go. People were very friendly, the coffee always good.

We were very disappointed in this restaurant. We went there for breakfast and found the service was shocking, the girl was rude and didn't smile and the food was less then impressive for the price. In understand the owners are selling so here's hoping they employ better staff when new owners take over

The chocolate cake was good, and the coffee tasted good, too - we took a long black before we went to Aitutkaki by plane. Nothing special, just good. The waitress was not too friendly - unusual for Rarotonga.

Check out Jireh. Good selection of food from the cabinet and also off the menu. The best custard squares anywhere!

The owners were absolutely lovely - so chatting and welcoming. Some of the wait staff on the other hand were rude and unfriendly (we went their twice and same experience both times). Great cakes, good coffee... i think you should advertise how good your brownies are ;)

This is one of the best coffee shops in Rarotonga. Very consistent and excellent coffee and snacks. Right on the beach opposite the airport. Friendly locals

Both times I visited, they were shutting early. Maybe they had run out of food but in the brochure it says they open until 3 or 4 but don't bother after 2.30.

They advertise "The best Custard Squares in Raro" & they are pretty good. Staff are friendly & owner spent some time chatting with us. Coffee was OK, but we didn't find any really good ones on the Island. They are easy to find, but like many of the Cafes here they close quite early. NOTE: The cafe in the airport... More
