“Great value breakfast in the heart of Port Vila.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Jill's Cafe is a spacious premises located in downtown Port Vila.
The breakfast menu was available until 11am.There was a good range of options,we went for the All American Breakfast which consisted of fresh fruit,a mixed grill,hash browns and generous helpings of toast and marmalade.
I also ordered an Iced Coffee with Vanilla Ice cream and my wife had a Latte.
The day was already getting warm so we asked the waitress for iced water which arrived promptly in a large jug.
This was a really excellent and tasty breakfast at a very reasonable price.We both enjoyed it.
There is a notice saying that the cooked breakfast takes a while to come but that it's worth the wait- and it is.
Smokers be aware that it is a non - smoking venue.

“Loved it! Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Staff were fabulously welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Food portions were generous and well-priced. Iced coffee was yummy and food arrived quickly - always a bonus with young kids. And - something a little rare in Port Vila - a clean toilet.

“Great value and quick service”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Great range of favourite dishes like big burgers, hot dogs, fries, thickshakes and all made with fresh local produce. This was a regular stop of ours while in Vanuatu as there was plenty of room due to customers tables getting turned over and the service was quick. Bowl of chilli was hot and spicy, burger meat was finely ground, thickshake was outstanding. This is a must for a quick lunch.

Friendly staff - they got my order wrong and gave me a beef pattie instead but there's a nice vibe and it's reliable american style food.
