The Waffle Shack

Best place in town to stop by for a crispy waffle and a strong espresso: a perfect recipe for both breakfast and an afternoon snack! The waffles, in particular, are marvellously baked here and filled with everything you may want, such as refreshing ice cream and a cherry sauce!


The island of Rarotonga is the premier cafe location – cafes are scarce or non-existent on the outer islands. There is a good selection of cafes across this island serving a variety of coffee and snacks at fair budget prices suitable for the discerning traveller. Some are even open until late at night to cater for the after pub trade.
