I've loved both breakfast experiences at Home Cafe. The food ranges from omelettes to hearty potato dishes and excellent lattes. Make sure to check out the beautiful back patio which overlooks the river.

Unexpected is what come to mind! Truly out of its element in Samoa, but thats what makes it nice. Lots to look at... really interesting. Everything in the set up has been well thought of. We went here for breakfast....food presentation was not bad, taste ok food preparation area...well if I saw it before ordering I probably wouldn't eat. The... More

This place is amazing. The set up is unreal so much to look at. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. Came here for a few drinks with my husband and my family from Samoa. Would have loved to have come here on a day that it wasnt raining and experience sitting out the back. Still had an awesome time... More

This is a truly quirky place to visit. Horace, the owner, has created this retro venue into a haven of respite and taste using cast out furniture and trash from around Apia. In Australia or New Zealand, you would need to book ahead for the experience and battle with artists and hipsters for a seat and coffee. A "barber shop",... More

I was taken there by a local businessman and the coffee and breakfast rolls were impeccable. I have not eaten better in a 5 star hotel. The place itself is simply a gem and open air free entry museum. The father of the current owner built it all up and started as a barber, that's why the barber seat is... More

If you're searching for a great coffee, chilled tropical fruity smoothie, eggs benedict or big breakfast on the beautiful island of Samoa..HOME Cafe Samoa is the best place to enjoy coffee & fresh clean food. This cafe has been created by vintage, antique knick knacks amongst the beautiful surrounds of palm trees, running creek & Samoa breeze. The atmosphere at... More
