Terrific meals of fresh vegetables and fruit. The refreshing homemade lemonade is a must. The staff are very accommodating for people with restricted diets, and the service is fast and efficient.

After walking around Port Vila for a while we chose to have coffee at Jill's Café because it looked clean and inviting. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Coffee was good. There is a book exchange inside the café, so if you have time you can browse the books. We didn't have any food, but there were several choices,... More

We stopped here while on a cruise and found the Cafe a friendly place to stop. Clean toilets were available and the staff were friendly. The kids chips and sausages, were spicy sausages so our little one didn't eat them but he enjoyed the chips. Fan's in the cafe make for a welcome relief from the humid air outside.

Clean, busy Cafe. Ate here twice and loved each time. Nachos is enough for two easily in my opinion. The toasted sandwiches looked good. Burritos ok too. Didn't try the cheesy fries but believe they are very good. The thickshakes are great and some of the best priced in the city. I recommend fresh banana flavour. Yum!
