We were staying 0.4 miles up the road from here, Paradise Cove, and kept passing this "organic fruit for sale." So we stopped in and bought fabulous fruit we'd never heard for next to nothing compared to what we were expecting to pay- fun! Sonja who was minding the shop mentioned that Wednesdays (I think it was Wednesdays, but double... More

This is the perfect place for shopping organic food and have a tropical lunch once a week (Wednesday at the time of our visit). You are at Sonja's home, she grows the products and she cooks them for you. Try the bread fruit lasagna! I read some negative reviews about this place and I couldn't believe it. If you are... More

Sonia is amazing, we were recommended to her by Pa in Rarotonga. Sonia did not disappoint, her fresh and organic garden produce was so tasty, made for a lovely lunch and easy dinner. The breadfruit lasagne is amazing, grab a basket full of veg and set yourself up for your stay, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

This Place is nice and rustic and the food is really good. I would have given it a 5-pointer except for that when we Went here first it was Close even though we were within the opening times of the sign. And the sidewalk sign was not removed. Still recomend a eating here.

I was coming to the end of my bike ride around Aitutaki and was looking for one of the local cafes for a quick take away something. I spotted the sign to Tauono's Garden Cafe with organic veggie market and thought I'd grab some fruit along the way. It's a tucked away little outdoor setting in the front garden, well... More

We stooped in on this organic cafe to pick up a takeaway meal for dinner- the breadfruit lasagne was freshly cooked and packed into little containers for us to heat up later. It was delicious!!! Fresh, healthy, tasty, organic and vegetarian. We also stocked up on the fresh produce from the little market stall to make some of our own... More

We didn't eat here but bought lots of fruit, vegetables and herbs from the amazing Sonja. She is a dedicated gardener with a fantastic range of seasonal produce.The coconut cake, bread and chips were amazing.

A small, relaxed cafe where one can wander in the garden and see a wonderful range of raw produce before sitting down to enjoy its transformation into some very tasty dishes. And try to leave room for dessert! (If you're lucky, you may even get to chat with Sonja who is responsible for it all.)

Fabulous fresh and delicious home-style cooking. Vegan and vegetarian catered for as well as fish and meat. Highly recommended. (bring insect repellent because you're eating in the garden)
