Unexpected Yet Delicious Treat

The Organic Cafe

It was Day 1 in Aitutaki and after a quick tour of the island I was left to my own devices.  Considering it was a gorgeous day, it seemed only right to go have a wonder so with my camera in hand, I set off to see what trouble I could get myself into.  I strolled along the beach for a bit and just as I was starting to feel snacky, I noticed a sign for an organic cafe (Tauono’s Garden Cafe just encase you’re wondering) and thought why not.  I left the beach and walked up the path only to find that the place was jam-packed.  Everyone was seated in a little garden outside with a chalkboard that had the 3 specials for the day.  As there weren’t any empty seats in the house, I was told to squeeze in with a local and 2 other tourists as it doesn’t hurt to make new friends.

Turns out this little organic cafe I stumbled upon was a big deal.  Everything was homemade and all the ingredients for the daily specials came from the garden.  Just encase you’re wondering, for my meal I choose the breadfruit lasagna and a glass of lemonade.  What came out to me were 3 plates of food along with a freshly squeezed glass of lemonade.  As far as the plates of food go, there was the breadfruit lasagna with leaves and flowers (all editable and supposedly the same amount of Vitamin C as 2 oranges) while the 2nd plate contained a star fruit salsa, a garden salad with marinated carrots, and finally a small 3rdone for the spicy banana.  All in all, the cafe was an excellent find as the food was amazing even if it was more than I could eat in one sitting.
