We found this to be one of the better spots for an inexpensive, tasty lunch. It has wifi (Blue Sky - you have to pay) and nice shady spots to sit outdoors. Conveniently close to the scooter drop-off and pick-up place.

The only 'proper' cafe on the island, and easily the best for food and coffee. Recommend getting the prosciutto sandwich!

One of the best cheese cakes I have had was served in the Koru Cafe. You wouldn't expect that. There is not much around to enjoy a coffee or sweets.

We stopped here three times in a row to taste the delicious fish sandwiches! A must to try the tuna one, the bites and the fish cakes!

This place is probably one of the best on the island, but only available for breakfast and lunch. That is too bad since the food is excellent.

Unexpectedly good for such an isolated location as Aitutaki. Excellent coffee and bacon and eggs to match. Great for an early brekky of casual lunch. Closes around 3:00pm

Nice cafe. Good coffee, good and healthy food options (not common on the island) and nice staff. Prices are fine and location is close to some of the nicest beaches.
