We loved the eggs Benedict, they have special bennys too. Their sweet treats are to die for, we bought our wedding cupcakes here.

Nice cafe with great sweets and drinks, nice verandah, but partly rude staff. Although the cafe is open till 4pm, the bar closes already at 3pm - so come early!

A great place to grab a coffee and a donut. The homemade donuts they have here are amazing. We came here multiple times during our trip!

Amazing looking cakes and doughnuts that we didn't try. Two of us enjoyed the pancakes but others not so impressed with their choices.

We went back several times whilst we were on Raro - think we preferred the food even to the famous Beluga the other side of the island. French toast, banana toast and pancakes were all absolutely delicious. Fruit smoothie, excellent. Coffee, great, Chai Latte on...More

Given the other reviews here we must have been on a bad day. The coffee was ordinary, the eggs were watery and the service was gruff.
