This cafe, with a bakery out the back, is one of the few places to be mostly open in Rarotonga.

It's set in an attractive garden with a small playground out the back for kids.

You can eat here on the spacious veranda for breakfast and lunch. It closes mid-afternoon.

As well as the coffee, I enjoyed their fresh Nu or coconut, a selection of salads, some better than others and they also offer a range of filled rolls and sandwiches.

Considering there's not a lot open in the Muri Beach area, especially on Saturday afternoon and Sunday, the LBV is a good staple.

Had pancakes on the verandah. Great presentation with four toppings on amuse bouche spoons. Friend had eggs bennie both above average but not worth repeating. The setting was the best part. Great place to watch people and enjoy the topical setting, even without a view if the beach I'd go back for morning tea.

Was out first encounter on the island and a great start! Eggs were poached perfectly! The girls serving were friendly and helpful.
The sweet treats in the counter display looked high class.
