Friendly staff. Nice clean cafe, with attractive decor. Food was delicious, chocolate milkshake was sensational. I returned many times during my 8 days stay in Honiara.

Lovely spot with delightful staff. The food is great and there is usually a Solomon Star around if you want to catch up on local news. There is also a useful bookshelf. Hours -- 7-4 are a bit restricted, and skip the wireless; get a dongle from Telekom across the street. From the big front window, watch barefoot locals strolling... More

This air-conditioned cafe closes at 4pm so is a lunch and breakfast option only. Western favourites include an espresso coffee machine, burgers and fish and chips. Unexpectedly, there are low-carb options such as fried fish with stir-fried veggies (a nice light lunch).

This is a great place to find some air con and great freshments. There is wifi and great reading material, to top it all off the food is great as well. Try the bush lime drink.

Great coffee, food and atmosphere. Clean toilets, lovely staff and the menu was expansive. The only place to get a really good coffee.

Air-conditioned cafe in central Honiara. The bush lime juice is delicious. The burgers and salad are good. The cafe is air conditioned and they accept credit cards. The location is not beautiful. They also sell some local art.

We ate here on our last day in Honiara. We heard it was good and finally made it down there with a few of our friends. Their coffee is from Australia and was very good, and the breakfast was tasty. Another plus is they have free wi-fi there.

This is arguably the best place to have coffee in Honiara and has a good menu for breakfast and lunch. Conveniently located in the middle of the commercial district, just to the side of the ANZ head main branch.

Refreshing bush lime juice and yummy fresh fish steaks with garlic aioli. The Lime Lounge provides a cool oasis to pop into for brunch or lunch. Great options, reasonable price and friendly staff.

Lime lounge was recommended as a great little cafe with free wifi and more than decent food. The food and the service were very very good. The wifi connection was free, but more than a little flaky on our visit.

Thank Redwoodie
