Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the only place we could find in Muri that was open between 10am and 11am (between Pacific Resort and Moana Sands Lagoon Resort, on a weekday). They had live music when we arrived. There are lots of cakes and baked goods available and...a small cooked menu. We ordered from the menu and the food was ok, a bit pricey but very filling. They do not have gluten free bread or gluten free options.More

It was a Sunday morning so not much is open when we decided to head out for breakfast. We DROVE AROUND THE WHOLE ISLAND looking for a place that was open. We found LBV just down the road from our accommodation....duhh! A nice vibe here....Had a trio playing music and good accompaniment to our breakfast meal. Ordered a full breakfast meal but felt a bit let down when it arrived. For the price paid I felt it could have had a bit more on the plate. Was very busy this particular morning so had a long wait for our plates to arrive. My daughter-in-law ordered a jug of orange juice but arrived as passionfruit juice instead - which fortunately we loved. Great bakery options that we thoroughly enjoyed.More

This is a great place for breakfast and lunch. The bakery items were the best we found in the Cook Islands. There were many small-bite items which we often prefer to large breakfasts. They even had brioche french toast which was a real treat. I...am a coffee snob - their coffee drinks were done very well. The eating area is a large covered porch and tables in the grass overlooking nice greenery.More

We're big fans of LBV (in German, the abbreviation stands for Landesamt fuer Besoldung und Versorgung) because the people runing it, are always relaxed, truly friendly, and hugely competent. No matter how long the line of customers, the weather, time of day and probably anything...else that would annoy others. Also, the food is so tasty, which can be enjoyed on a veranda facing a lovely garden. We give the LBV our highest recommendation.More

As my title says the customer service we received at LBV was on point! They were all so lovely and very helpful :) We had an iced mocha each which was nice for a hot day and also tried one of each flavour donuts which...was lemon curd and chocolate. In all honesty the dough was soft but the mock cream I think it was, wasn’t the best and there was a lot of it but not much of the other flavours. Nice little stop and great area at the back if you have kids with you to run around.More

A lovely cafe in Muri with a great selection of delicious pastries and donuts. They also make a very good flat white that you can enjoy on the outside veranda. There is a play area for kids and a selection of wildlife wandering about. The...staff are really nice and it became our regular daily visitMore

Excellent coffee! Eggs Benedict with bacon was our favourite. Hollandaise sauce was perfect. Warm and friendly service, even when the staff were under pressure. Meitaki maata.

I found my special morning Coffee spot here, was open and serving at 7.30 and the best coffee I had in Rarotonga, the bakery food is amazing too, super good sausage rolls and if you are lucky enough to catch the fresh donuts coming out...OMG, that takes some timing as they are very popular but well worth the effortMore
