Hungry? One of my favorite places to eat in Neiafu is the Crow's Nest Cafe. This neat little cafe offers an all day menu of various breakfast items, sandwiches, and daily specials. The owners, Tess and Steve, also specialize in making different types of breads and bakery goods that are quite famous in Vava'u. My personal favorite are the cinnamon rolls! Prices are pretty reasonable, even with my Peace Corps budget. They do an awesome "punch card" system which 15% of your bill adds up on credit for free or discounted food for the next you stop by and eat. Another personal favorite of mine are the burgers. For $15 TOP, it is the biggest (and best) hamburger in Vava'u. The place is pretty popular, but may be a bit hard to find if you have never been there before. It is located near the main wharf area and across the street of the Tongan Customs/Quarantine building. Just ask around if you are lost. In the end, if you are looking for a nice home cooked meal and a place to sit back and relax...check out the Crow's Nest Cafe. You will not be disappointed.
